When it comes to products that are perfectly tailored to your individual skin needs and concerns, SkinCeuticals have always got you covered. This new innovation from the brand is ideal if you’re looking for a potent daily serum that is going to tackle angry breakouts and premature signs of ageing all in one powerful hit. Let’s get to know the Silymarin CF a little bit better…
What does it do?
This high-performance product boasts a wealth of key actives which provide the skin with unrivaled protection against daily damage. Cutaneous photo-protection mechanisms triggered by the Silymarin found within the formula reduce and suppress the harmful effects of solar UV radiation, such as inflammation, oxidative stress and photo-ageing. This multi-tasking serum also reduces oil oxidation, which is when the sebum on the skin’s surface clogs the pores, resulting in blackheads and blemishes.
15% Pure L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): You’re probably already familiar with the powers that Vitamin C offers the skin but the generous concentration found within this formula neutralises free radicals whilst aiding the skin’s natural regeneration process, which in turn helps to repair damaged skin cells.
0.5% Ferulic Acid: Another impressive antioxidant, Ferulic Acid, works to boost the effects of Vitamin C and neutralises free-radical damage from UV light, infrared radiation and pollution. Although it doesn’t repair the damage that’s already been done, it does reduce the development of premature signs of ageing and dark spots.
0.5% Salicylic Acid: This BHA deeply penetrates the skin to dissolve pore-clogging debris and impurities whilst working as an effective anti-inflammatory. The acid part of the Salicylic Acid molecule can also dissolve some of the intracellular glue that holds the cells together to gently exfoliate and renew the top layer of skin.
0.5% Silymarin: Extracted from the fruits and seed of Milk Thistles, this key ingredient works with the other antioxidants found within this serum to reduce and suppress the harmful effects of UV radiation. It also tackles inflammation whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
