SkinCeuticals is a line of products best known for their topical antioxidant/Vitamin-C serum products. When applied as directed, they will start to be absorbed by the skin almost immediately. After these serums are absorbed, they cannot be washed off. These protein antioxidant products were developed as a preventative treatment with the goal of protecting the skin from further environmental damage, and to help prevent environmental free radicals from damaging your collagen and DNA molecules. This helps to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as preventing the development of skin cancers and pre-cancerous lesions by providing up to 8 times the protection of using sunscreen alone!
Vitamin-C is necessary for the production of collagen; the major structural protein of the skin, and you may notice a visible difference in skin texture, color and tone with regular usage. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles should become less noticeable within a short term as well. Individual results may vary, depending upon the condition of the skin at the time of initial use. The most important benefit of Vitamin C/antioxidant serums is preventative, which is why it is typically applied in the morning immediately after cleansing and toning the skin. SkinCeuticals also produces a wide variety of cleansers, moisturizer enhancers, eye creams, sunscreens, and other skin care products that are appropriate for specific skin types.
