Vitamin C serums have been flooding the beauty market in 2016 – each promising miracle-level results. So, what’s the secret? Do they really work? With Skin Cancer Awareness month drawing to a close, an ideal way to practice prevention is with the daily use of a Vitamin C serum. Our Vitamin C serums in residence at SKYN Lounge are Skinceuticals’ C E Ferulic & Phloretin C F. And yes, they really do work. Here is what you can expect:
- Enhanced Protection – With the combined use of C E Ferulic or Phloretin CF and a broad spectrum SPF, you will be protected with a double defense against UVA/UVB rays and atmospheric aging. Why use both? Think of the Vitamin C serum like OJ for your skin – it penetrates deep for maximum protection. Once absorbed, the Vitamin C serum will remain effective for 72 hours! We do recommend daily application of 3-5 drops on your face, neck and chest.

- Brighten & Tighten — SkinCeuticals’ special formulation features brightening ingredients that promote a more youthful complexion. As the formula neutralizes dangerous free radicals, it aids in the appearance of firmness, fine lines and wrinkles!
Not sure which one is for you?
We suggest Phloretin CF for normal to oily skin types and C E Ferulic for normal to dry skin types.
