Skin products can work wonders in improving the look and quality of the skin. However, everyone’s skin is different and thus reacts differently to products. While there are ingredients and products that are good for all skin, misusing or overusing the product can lead to side effects from even the gentlest products. So, what are the side effects of ferulic acid serum?
Ferulic acid serum, especially if it contains hyaluronic acid, is generally safe and beneficial for most skin types. However, applying it too much, too often, or not getting your skin used to it can lead to irritation of sensitive skin. This is generally not major and will clear up by using the product less or ceasing its use for a few days.
Since ferulic acid serum is anti-aging, it may occasionally cause some minor skin peeling. Often, this is only when you first start using it or if using a high concentration. This should not be as prominent as peeling from a chemical peel and can be covered with makeup. It is also possible—though unlikely—to have an allergic reaction. If you have a severe reaction, swelling, or hives, stop using the serum.
