What is vitamin C?

Vitamin C is one of the most effective anti-aging skin ingredients on the market. It’s a potent antioxidant that, used topically, treats and prevents photodamage. It also reduces hyperpigmentation, evens skin tone and boosts collagen production. When you use vitamin C in physician-strength concentrations, your skin will become plumper and more radiant.

What is vitamin E?

Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant that, used topically, can treat several skin problems that result in photoaging and UV damage. It supports healthy cell function and helps maintain the general health of your skin.  Importantly, vitamin E protects your skin from free radicals in the environment.  It’s anti-inflammatory and helps diminish facial redness and rosacea.

What visible changes can I expect to see by using vitamins C and E?

A more even skin tone with reduced hyperpigmentation. Vitamins C and E can reduce dark spots caused by oxidative stress, UV damage, pollution, and the aging process. Used together, vitamins C and E together help prevent the development of the visible signs of aging—at the cellular level.

What product should I be using that contains both vitamins?

CE Serum. Its powerful formula contains vitamins C and E along with ferulic acid to enhance the skin’s natural protection from environmental damage. CE Serum helps prevent damage caused by oxidative stress with anti-aging benefits such as a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll enjoy a firmer, brighter complexion, too.
