Spotlight on: ferulic acid

As the end of summer approaches, you may be thinking about the effect that sun has had on your skin over the past few months.  It’s easy to see the damage we do when our skin burns.  However, what we can’t see in real time is how UVA damages our skin and this is what brings us to today’s spotlight ingredient: ferulic acid.

Always read the label

I’ve written previously about establishing a skincare routine, which I am sure you have down pat now!  When you chose the items to use in your routine, it is likely that you selected tried and true brands that you have known and loved for years.  Or maybe something recommended by a mother, sister or friend.
But have you ever had that moment when you feel like your favourite item isn’t working like it used to?  This is generally because your skin adjusts to the ingredients in the product and over time, the moisturiser (or whatever the item in question is) doesn’t have the same effect.  When you go on the hunt for a replacement, it’s worth selecting something with ingredients that will really benefit your skin.
