Best SkinCeuticals products of 2021: Vitamin C serums, anti-aging creams – New York Post

If there’s anything we learned from our time in pandemic-driven lockdown, it’s that skincare is one of the most important areas to invest in.

From cleansers to serums to eye creams and moisturizers, nailing down your skincare regimen is akin to perusing at a Persian buffet. To make your shopping experience easier, however, is Skinceuticals.

An investment, for sure, the American-made brand formulates high-potency formulas to help prevent and correct signs of aging and potential damage. Plus, its products are frequently used by dermatologists, medi-spas and plastic surgeons.

Skinceuticals isn’t only adored by medical professionals and spa specialists. The brand’s C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum is one of Brooke Shields’ favorites, per Page Six.

  • Skin concerns: Aging, Dehydrated, Discoloration, Sensitized

“It’s packed with antioxidants and really brightens my skin, and since I began using it, I’ve noticed a difference in my fine lines,” Shields told Redbook. Which, makes sense, as SkinCeuticals deems the serum “improves signs of aging and photodamage, the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the loss of firmness — while brightening [the] skin’s complexion.”


Skinceuticals is, slowly but surely, turning into a household name for skincare enthusiasts. Just last week at a family reunion, my 30-year-old cousins were raving about the brand’s preventative benefits and hydration levels.
