Today marks the second annual National Vitamin C Day. This day is dedicated to showcasing the SkinCeuticals science behind the importance of Vitamin C for skin health and beauty, recognizing the brand’s results-driven, clinically-proven, antioxidant serums, and emphasizing the importance of incorporating Vitamin C into daily routines to protect against daily aggressors both indoors and out.

Vitamin C is an essential step in any skincare regimen as it protects skin health against combined aggressors. These offenders are silent and cause ongoing damage to the skin without warning. Innocuous tasks such as checking your phone and sitting in front of a computer cause exposure to invisible light, going for a run outside leads to UVA ray exposure, and the simple act of taking a hot shower can render individuals vulnerable to heat damage. Dr. Giuseppe Valacchi, a leading researcher in the study of ozone, explains that “the exposure to atmospheric aggressors (UV light, ozone, and diesel engine exhaust) is equivalent to 2-3 hours of outdoor exposure on a sunny day, in a city like Rome or New York.”

SkinCeuticals is dedicated to offering the gold standard in skincare, and as such, continuously studies and researches Vitamin C. Traditionally, the effects of atmospheric aggressors on the skin have been tested individually. This year, SkinCeuticals’ science was rooted in understanding the comprehensive impact of combined daily aggressors. This new study has proven that antioxidants effectively help neutralize chemical reactions generated by exposure to combined aggressors – ultraviolet light, ozone, and diesel engine exhaust – that one would experience in a typical, urban environment. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic is now clinically proven to reduce combined oxidative damage from free radicals generated by all three aggressors by up to 41%.

The popularity of topical Vitamin C products has risen dramatically, however, not all Vitamin C serums are created equal. Born from academic science, SkinCeuticals patented Vitamin C serums are backed by 16 clinical studies, over 30 years of research, and 60+ beauty awards. The brand’s antioxidant formulations are the gold standard for correcting visible signs of ageing like fine lines and uneven skin tone and helping prevent the appearance of future skin damage.
