Ferulic Acid, the Hidden Gem of the Skincare World

Jun. 4, 2020
Ferulic acid is a relatively new antioxidant in the skincare world, but it is on its way to making a big impact. Ferulic Acid is commonly found in the seeds of fruits like apples, vegetables, nuts, and grains. It plays an important role in fighting free-radical damage that contributes to the aging of skin.
Why Use Ferulic Acid?
Dermatologists say that as long as you don’t have very sensitive skin or an allergy to ferulic acid, it’s a great product to use.
Ferulic Acid has interesting self-preservation properties that help it maintain a resilient cell wall in plants. When applied on skin it works by going deep into the lower layers in search of harmful radicals and protects skin from UV damage. This ability makes it a better antioxidant as compared to Vitamin C as it offers twice the amount of skin protection. Thus, to get the best results, it is often combined with other ingredients like Vitamin E & Retinol. This combination of antioxidants helps in keeping the formula stable and boosts its ability to protect skin. 
Serums and products infused with Ferulic Acid fight a number of skin problems. Not only do they protect you against the harmful UV rays of the sun, but they also improve the pigmentation of skin further making it more flexible and smooth. 
If you’re looking for a product that will help you reverse the signs of aging, then ferulic acid is a good way to begin. It has the ability to in the layers and fight the toxins that cause the oxidation which slows down the aging process. Its flexible nature stabilizes other skincare ingredients like Vitamin C, which makes the product work better and show improved lasting signs.
Side Effects
The ferulic acid is usually considered as a safe product for most skin types. However, if your skin is a little more sensitive than normal, it’s best to do a small patch test before using the product. 
People can also develop an allergic reaction to ferulic acid. The reason for the development of this allergy lies in the parent ingredient from which the acid was derived. Since Ferulic acid comes from a plant source, if someone is allergic to the plant it’s derived from, the product may not suit their skin.
It’s important to stop using a product immediately if you notice problems like redness, rashes, hives, skin peeling, and irritation.

I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
