Vitamin C or ferulic acid? Better the two together | Beauty The Trust Project
Let's start with the first of them, vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, a very effective active ingredient in the prevention and treatment of ageing. How do you get it? Neutralizing free radicals - a molecule that is produced every day in our body as a result of the biological reactions of cells - and thus protecting the skin from oxidative stress.
It is also an agent that intervenes in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which leads it to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and combat them when they are already present.
Main ingredient of many cosmetics, when it comes to getting one of them it is convenient to make sure of the concentration in which it is used, its purity and the pH in which it is formulated.
If it is going to be used in the morning, it will protect the skin from the oxidative stress of the day, caused mainly by pollution and UVA rays as external aggressors, and from internal stress. If it is to be used at night, it fulfills the function of repairing the skin.
Ferulic acid is of plant origin, as it is found in the cell walls of plants and is considered the great blocker of the action of the sun on our skin, since it prevents redness and other damage caused by the action of the rays.
Like vitamin C, it also promotes the creation of collagen and elastin, keeping the skin young and smooth, and fighting the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes.
In summary, two powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory active ingredients, which fight against aging, have depigmenting and moisturizing properties. The best? Mix them, because ferulic acid enhances the benefits of vitamin C.
