Ferulic acid serum and other skincare serums are generally only used on the face and neck. This is partially because these areas are where people tend to focus their skincare efforts. Additionally, these areas receive the most sun exposure and damage. However, can you use ferulic acid serum on the body?
Technically, the answer is yes. There is no harm in using most skin serums on the body. It can provide benefits to these areas as well. However, there are specific body serums available that are specially formulated for the skin on the body versus the skin on the face. Still, there is no harm to using these products on the body.
With that in mind, there are some possible downsides. Face serums are generally not inexpensive and you will go through them faster. It is also simply unrealistic to consider applying serum across the entire body. The general recommendation is to only use ferulic acid serum on patches of dry skin on the body and follow it up with a quality body moisturizer.
