Ferulic acid, vitamin C, and vitamin E are the star ingredients in our YELLE Awakening Hydrating Serum. When these three ingredients are combined, they provide protection against fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate the skin, and provide protectionagainst free radicals. Keep reading to learn more about this powerhouse trio and why we love it for the skin.
Ferulic Acid, Vitamin C, & Vitamin E Explained
Ferulic acid is a plant-based antioxidant. Antioxidants are the backbone for fighting skin aging. They help prevent sunburn, aid in skin repair, and brighten the skin. There are many different sources of antioxidants but ferulic acid can be found in apple seeds, citrus and other foods.
Vitamin C is responsible for creating bright and even skin tones. It is a potent antioxidant that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Women experiencing dark spots on their skin should also reach for vitamin C to help diminish their appearance.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant highly touted for its abilities to reduce photoaging (aka skin damage caused by ultraviolent radiation or UV). It is naturally occurring in our skin but decreases over time. Vitamin E is a wonderful topical solution to soothe the skin and help with scars.
How it Works
Ferulic acid along with vitamins C & E help fight free radicals. Free radicals damage the skin by accelerating skin aging. They are created from environmental factors like pollution, smoking and even the sun. The impact on the skin is discoloration, and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. This trio helps stabilize free radicals by offering up electrons, so the free radicals don’t steal them from your skin.
Ferulic acid in conjunction with vitamins C & E brightens, moisturizes and promote softer, smoother skin. The YELLE Awakening Hydrating Serum also contains ultra-hydrating ingredients to provide your skin with the moisture it needs to stay balanced throughout the day.
Usage: Use the YELLE Awakening Serum after cleansing with our Awakening Milk & Honey Cleanser and Toner. Apply serum to the skin, allow to dry, and then apply our moisturizer. *Tip: If you are new to using concentrated serums start out by using the serum 2-3x per week then gradually build up to daily usage.
