Which SkinCeuticals Vitamin C Is Right For Me?

After performing all the initial scientific studies and product development on Vitamin C’s benefits for the skin, it’s no wonder SkinCeuticals is the “Antioxidant Authority.” Skinceuticals is known for investing in extensive studies underscoring the benefits and safety of their Vitamin C skincare products, which are commonly used for both treatment and prevention for the signs of skin aging. Their big 3 in Vitamin C skincare– Silymarin, CE Ferulic, and Phloretin CF– are all formulated with ingredients to protect various skin types.

Benefits of Vitamin C for your Skin

All of SkinCeuticals’ topical Vitamin C serums contain the purest form of the ingredient called L-Ascorbic Acid. This powerful antioxidant provides a great level of protection for the skin against free-radical damage caused by environmental factors such as pollution, UV rays, infrared radiation, and a person’s lifestyle. Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce wrinkles, skin discoloration, and skin laxity. Each of SkinCeuticals’ Vitamin C serums is tailored to normal-to-dry, normal-to-oily, and sensitive skin types. These serums also contain other antioxidants.

Now that we know the benefits of Vitamin C, how do you know which of SkinCeuticals main three serums are right for your skin? Let’s examine these Vitamin C serums and which skin type they are best for.

CE Ferulic Serum
This serum is formulated to protect the skin against environmental protection and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also brightens the skin’s complexion and regains its loss of firmness. “If you have dry, normal, combination, or sensitive skin and you want to improve the appearance of your wrinkles, this serum may be a good fit for you,” notes Stacey Martin, licensed medical aesthetician at Sanova Dermatology in Pflugerville.

Phloretin CF
If you have normal, oily or combination skin, the Phloretin CF Vitamin C serum may be right for you. “This serum, which comes with ferulic acid, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and discoloration. It is also great for fixing uneven skin tone,” Martin shares.

The NEWEST edition to the SkinCeuticals Vitamin C family is an oil-free serum that works best for oily and acne-prone skin. Silymarin CF also refines your skin texture and improves its clarity. “If you have oily or combination skin, add this serum to your skin regimen,” Martin suggests.
