How are Skinceuticals Antioxidants Formulated?
This potent vitamin C based Skinceuticals antioxidant is formulated with 15% vitamin C, 1% vitamin E, and 0.5% ferulic acid which form a synergistic combination that neutralises free radicals and improves the appearance of both fine lines and deeper wrinkles.
It contains the highest quality ingredients, including pure vitamin C with a pH in the 2.0-3.5 pH acidic range with a 10% to 20% concentration. C E Ferulic also helps to combat the loss of firmness that often occurs during the natural ageing process, restoring a fresh, hydrated, and youthful-looking complexion.
How Do I Use Topical Antioxidants?
This Skinceuticals antioxidant has been designed to be a daytime formulation. Ensure that your skin is dry before application, as this will ensure rapid absorption and maximum results. After thoroughly cleansing and toning your skin, apply between four and five drops of this fast-absorbing serum to your face, neck, and chest. Be sure to pat it onto your skin, do not rub it in. When the serum has been absorbed, you can then follow with your moisturiser of choice to lock in the goodness and ensure your skin is properly hydrated.
To further maximise results, it is recommended to use an antioxidant in combination with a broad-spectrum Sun Protection Factor (SPF). This will ensure that your skin is comprehensively protected from the sun and environmental free radicals that can take a real toll on your complexion.
What Can I Expect from Introducing a Topical Antioxidant into my Skincare Routine?
Topical antioxidants work to neutralise free radicals that meet the upper layers of the skin when we're out and about living our lives. By reinforcing the skin's natural barrier, ozone damage can be prevented, and you will experience a variety of anti-ageing benefits including an improvement to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, there is a reason why vitamin C is widely regarded as a heroic skincare ingredient. The purity and concentration of vitamin C is key and this powerful product from the skin experts at Skinceuticals is known for its anti-inflammatory, hydrating, and skin refining properties. Vitamin C is an essential component of elastin and collagen production, and it can also reduce the appearance of dark spots, brighten the complexion, and work to repair damaged cartilage and skin. The way vitamin C is used and absorbed in the skin was actually created by Dr Pinnel - the founder of Skinceuticals. This is why SkinCeuticals vitamin C products are seen as the gold standard across the globe.
Antioxidants are suitable for normal, dry, and sensitive skin. Vitamin C will start to break down when it is exposed to the air or light, so it is important to choose an antioxidant that is packaged in a tinted bottle. It is normal for this Skinceuticals treatment to become darker after opening, however, any colour changes will not impact the efficacy of this extremely popular product.
