After protecting my skin from the sun, my second biggest goal is to get as many antioxidants on to it to protect it from free radicals. SPF and antioxidants are my golden rules for anti-ageing – it’s all about protection. That’s if I am still allowed to say anti-ageing!! The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% is an antioxidant powerhouse and, in true The Ordinary style, is extremely affordable yet effective. Here’s what you need to know.
So Deciem are pushing all the boundaries again by bringing us two key ingredients in a much higher concentration than is currently available on the market.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% Features
- Formula combines very high concentrations Resveratrol and Ferulic Acid
- Two of the most powerful and important antioxidants in skincare
- Resveratrol is a natural phenol & this one is 100% derived from Japanese Knotweed
- Ferulic Acid is a high-potency phytochemical antioxidant found naturally in walls of plant cells
- Water-free, oil-free, silicone-free, alcohol-free formula
Generally, antioxidant skincare formulations use Resveratrol at 1% or less and Ferulic Acid at 0.5% or less concentration. What’s extra special about The Ordindary’s formulation is that it contains these key ingredients at the exceptionally high concentration of 3%.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% – How To Use It
You can use this after a water based serum and under moisturiser. However, I think my favourite way to use this is to mix a drop or two into my serums or moisturisers to boost their antioxdant protection power. It blends in really easily and can turn an average cream into a product that will help defend your skin from the environment.
Deciem experts say you can it with The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% or Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone at each application to form an outstanding antioxidant network of Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid and Resveratrol.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% is just £5.50 (incredible!) and available HERE now. You may not really see any instant obvious effects from this product. However, you can rest in the knowledge that it’s working very hard to defend your skin against oxidative stress. The results of this should show over time.
