by Hailei Kim on Jun 22, 2020

Sometimes you do everything by the book but it just doesn’t work on your skin. Rather than switching to yet another skincare routine, try adding ferulic acid to your daily skincare regimen to witness a powerful effect using the same product that you already own. Working its best to boost the potency of other active ingredients, ferulic acid is definitely a team player. Get ready to organize your skin care team with the help of ferulic acid.

Ferulic Acid? 

ferulic-acid-insert-imageFerulic acid is an antioxidant that comes from the cell wall of plants and grain. As antioxidants neutralize free radicals that tackle the protective barrier of your skin and accelerate skin aging, ferulic acid can be a powerful anti-aging tool. Because the ingredient is mild and gentle in its nature, even the ones with sensitive skin can apply it daily to protect their skin from sun damage and daily pollutants. It works wonders when paired with other antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E, enhancing the properties of other vitamins and achieves significant synergy. Choose the effect that you want to boost and ferulic acid will work its magic.
  • 1. Anti-aging

Skin aging is a natural course of life but sun exposure and UV light can speed up the process and cause premature skin aging. Protecting your skin from free radicals that cause such acceleration is an assured way to help your skin looking younger and rejuvenated. Ferulic acid fights off free radicals and protect your skin from pollution and radiation. It reduces the formation of fine lines and wrinkles and prevents loose and saggy skin. 

Try using it with Vitamin C 

Did you know that vitamin C doubles its potency when you use it with ferulic acid? Ferulic acid, once paired up with vitamin C, no longer provides partial protection but can give you the full treatment. Vitamin C helps regenerate skin cells and promotes collagen production. Adding a drop of vitamin C serum can make the effect of ferulic acid last longer and stronger.The New Vitamin C Serum from By Wishtrend contains Ferulic Acid
  • 2. Brightening 

When your skin loses its battle with free radicals, you will definitely notice the signs. Sunlight and radiation cause redness, irritation, and uneven skin tone. This is mainly because your skin has lost its protective barrier that prevents inflammation. If your skin is exposed to frequent and consistent inflammation, it does not stop at signs of redness and irritation but goes on to skin damage and lingering dark spots. Ferulic acid effectively reduces uneven pigmentation and dark spots from skin damage. It produces a protective barrier to protect your skin from damage and at the same time start the healing process of the scars that you already have.

Try it with a Vitamin E moisturizer

Vitamin E causes anti-inflammatory responses in the skin and can treat redness and irritation. Because vitamin E is an oil-soluble active ingredient, it is usually added in cream or balm type skin care products. While keeping the skin moisturized, vitamin E also treats scars and wounds. When applied in the long-term, vitamin E can get rid of acne scars, brightening your skin and making it look even-toned.Find the perfect Vitamin E craem to pair it with the Ferulic Acid
  • 3. Smoothening

As mentioned above, ferulic acid helps regenerate and rejuvenate the skin cells, making the skin look younger and brighter. This also means that the skin that has already been damaged is experiencing regrowth and renewal, attributing to a smoother surface of the skin. 

Try using a product that has a combination of ferulic acid and retinol

Retinol smoothens the skin by adding moisture and elasticity. Ferulic acid is known to protect the skin, keeping your skin healthy and unharmed. In other words, the combination of the two will generate a moisture barrier around the skin and help you recapture youthful texture.
  • 4. Works like magic for all skin types

Don’t worry about your skin type because ferulic acid works best with all skin types. It is mild and gentle so even the ones with sensitive skin can include it in their daily skincare routine. However, because you might want to apply it with caution if you have grain allergies.

Give the antioxidants a battle to fight when you go about your day.
