Antioxidants and Their Anti-Cancer Benefits

If you have visited our office I think you have probably heard us tell you the importance of wearing sunscreen daily, but did you know there are other products you can apply to the skin that can give even more photo-protection than just your sunscreen alone? There are a variety of antioxidants available that help to achieve better protection from the sun and there is always great debate as to which is the “best antioxidant”. One of the better ingredients is Ferulic Acid which has been known to give EIGHT TIMES the photo-protection than just sunscreen alone and has been studied for quite some time because of its anti-carcinogenic properties, anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to fight off free radicals. Ferulic Acid is often combined into Vitamin C topical preparations and should be a staple in every skin care regimen to help prevent skin cancer and to improve the mottled pigmentation and rough texture the sun causes over time. A few products that we prefer with this combination include SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic, SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, and skinfo® C Synergy Serum and Cream. Come into skinfo® to discuss which product is best to add into your regimen so you can take your sun protection to the next level!
