Antioxidant For The Skin

My sincere apologies for the hiatus.....pregnancy just made me a very tired (and lazy) mom to be.  Even lazier to try out the new skincare and makeup i had excitedly hidden away from my prying hubby. 

My pregnancy in the 1st trimester really tired me out big time....i would nap the moment my head hit something soft. Even my son asked why i am always so tired but that is no excuse to slacken on my skincare routine especially when the hormones will be wrecking up a havoc. 

One of my worst fear during pregnancy is SPOTS appearing on my face (next is cellulite - why? cos at least i can get dressed n hide it). To minimise spots from appearing, i have been diligently applying Cosmetic Skin Solutions Vitamin C + E Serum to my face every morning. This is a super antioxidant and it has 15% vitamin C, 1% vitamin E, 0.5% ferulic acid and hyaluronic acid. Its a great product that is timing saving at the same time. My routine is to apply this and follow by my SPF28 and i am out of the house.  Extracted from the website " This potent treatment contains a high amount of antioxidants to shield the skins surface, creating a protective defense barrier against environmental pollutants, assaults, and aggressors which can lead to oxidative stress and premature skin aging.  Repairs and improves the appearance of photo damaged skin, blotchy skin types, and those experiencing uneven skin tones.  Treats by lightening age and brown spots, melasma, erythma (redness), hyperpigmentation, as it smoothes and softens fine lines and wrinkles. "

You may like to know that Vitamin E can reduce the visibility of your scars or spots, diminish your wrinkles, moisturize your skin and give your skin a radiant glow. And Ferulic Acid is a plant-based antioxidant that is found in bran, among other plants. Research suggests that it provides antioxidant and sun-protective benefits to skin while enhancing the stability of topical applications of vitamin E.

Some of our sunblocks maybe not be able to block 100% of the UV so with the additional usage of this, damages can be further prevented. Too much sun is never a good thing and same goes for those sitting in the office as the UV will enter through the windows and cause harm too.

4.5 out of 5. So far my skin has been clear and no sight of new spot (touch wood) and spots have been significant lightened also. Price at US$39.85 for 30ml, a bottle can lasts about 4 months based on a daily use. It is way cheaper than a bigger brand retailing at US$153 for the same size. I have used the bigger brand in a sample size and it has the exact main ingredients and it smells the same too. 

You can buy direct from Cosmetics Skin Solution as they ship to Singapore directly for a fee.

For the 20s ladies, this is something that is definitely worth investing in. And for the 30s ladies, its definitely worth a try.
