You know getting vitamin C in your diet is essential, but it’s just as important to include it in your skin-care routine. The antioxidant is so important that it even has its own holiday. April 4, 2022, is the fourth annual Global Vitamin C Day. The holiday was created by SkinCeuticals, experts in antioxidants like vitamin C. The brand sells one bottle of its SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic ($169) every 30 seconds, so if you’re looking to celebrate the holiday, invest in this beloved serum.
Birmingham, AL dermatologist and SkinCeuticals partner physician Sarah Boyce Sawyer, MD recommends the CE Ferulic product to her patients often. She refers to it as “the industry gold standard” due to “its ability to reduce oxidative damage while protecting skin against photoaging.” She adds, “Simply put: it’s a product that works and works well—I am always confident when recommending it to my patients.”
Vitamin C is lauded for its many skin-improving benefits. “Vitamin C in skin care is a science-backed ingredient that helps improve the appearance of skin aging, wrinkles, dark spots and acne,” says Dr. Sawyer. “When used regularly, it helps prevent sun damage and protect against free radicals.”
SkinCeuticals launched the holiday to celebrate the beloved ingredient and have a moment to recognize the brand’s “unique approach to antioxidant formulation,” says Stephanie Kramer, global general manager of SkinCeuticals. “Not all vitamin C antioxidants are developed in the same way nor rooted in scientific research. We aim to educate on the power of vitamin C while showcasing relevant new findings from our research, allowing us to continue to provide antioxidants for a wide range of skin concerns.”
Another stellar product featuring the vital antioxidant is SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF ($169). Dr. Sawyer describes it as “a revolutionary antioxidant technology that combines phloretin, vitamin C and ferulic acid to help diminish the appearance of discoloration, refine skin texture and balance skin tone.”
