Along with sunscreen, applying an effective antioxidant serum every morning, under your sunscreen, is an effective way to minimize premature aging do to the damaging rays of the sun. Many clients are asking me what the difference is between our classic C & E Antioxidant Serum and our new Sunrise Solution.
C & E Antioxidant Serum contains the most stable form of Vitamin C available (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) which has had extensive studies done over many year with proven results as an exemplary antioxidant skin protector against free radical damage.. This is our best selling serum by far and clients continually rave about it’s positive effects which also include pore clearing, collagen building and skin brightening.
That being said, if you’re currently using C & E Antioxidant Serum and love it you might want to stick with it. However, we have chosen to introduce a new antioxidant formula called Sunrise Solution because it contains 18 potent and more recently recognized antioxidants including some superfruits like goji berries and pomegranate extract. This serum is very concentrated and addresses aging from other damaging rays from the sun besides UV light, primarily uncontrolled infrared light rays.
Some of my clients are combining both antioxidant formulas. This way they feel they are getting more broad spectrum antioxidant protection. (If used in this way, you are not using any more product, just use a half pump of the C & E and one pump Sunrise Solution). If you’re not into mixing you might want to examine how much sun you get on average.
I would choose C & E for those with drier skins or those who get a minimal amount of sun exposure. If you lead a more active lifestyle or have issues with sugar consumption (which also causes free radical damage) you may want to choose Sunrise Solution. I’ve noticed that not everybody can use C & E Antioxidant Serum. Some people with very sensitive skin will want to opt for Sunrise Solution. I have yet to find anyone who has a sensitivity to this serum. Sunrise Solution is the first formula I have found that was created to neutralizes free radicals from multiple sources including air pollution, smoke, stress and diet. For those with oily skin, Sunrise Solution is also oil-free and particularly light weight.
