”Best for Brightening” – SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic
If there’s one beauty product that can be considered a cult classic, it’s this serum from SkinCeuticals. “I have used this product for years and love how well it brightens my skin,” says InStyle Executive Beauty Director Amy Synnott-D’Annibale. “It contains a high concentration of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that helps protect against environmental damage while also working to brighten the skin.”
Synnott-D’Annibale also notes that this particular serum contains ferulic acid, another potent antioxidant, as well as vitamin E. “These ingredients work together to help fight free radicals and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,” she says. “I always apply this serum after cleansing and before applying my moisturizer in the morning.”
