Abstract: The Poincaré inequality $ \vert\vert u\vert{\vert _p} \leq C\vert\vert\nabla u\vert{\vert _p}$ in a bounded domain holds, for instance, for compactly supported functions, for functions with mean value zero and for harmonic functions vanishing at a point. We show that it can be improved to $ \vert\vert u\vert{\vert _p} \leq C\vert\vert{\delta ^\beta }\nabla u\vert{\vert _p}$, where $ \delta $ is the distance to the boundary, and the positive exponent $ \beta $ depends on the smoothness of the boundary.
