Beauty Secret: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum

No matter how far along you are in this thing called life, your skin care regimen should always include sun protection. We swear by SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, a potent antioxidant-rich serum that has proven to be one of the more effective over-the-counter options.

Beloved by dermatologists and backed by numerous studies, this age-defying panacea packs in a potent concentration of three antioxidants that work to halt future UV damage while repairing existing damage: L-ascorbic acid promotes collagen synthesis (among other benefits), alpha tocopherol heals skin and provides photoprotection, and anti-inflammatory ferulic acid inhibits sunspot formation.

This is all to say: If you apply four to five drops of the serum to your face, neck, and chest once a day (prior to your normal sunscreen, of course!), over time existing hyperpigmention fades, skin tone evens, and skin texture improves, leaving your complexion glowing — seriously!

Though you may balk at the scent (it smells like smoked meat), feel (sticky and tight), and price tag (high), let us set you at ease: The smell dissipates quickly; the lightweight serum absorbs on contact, but adding moisturizer or sunscreen over the top will erase any residual “stick” or tightness; and the price is for a bottle that lasts a few months.

In other words, it’s worth it.

Available at skinceuticals.com, $163.
