How to Use Vitamin C Serum for Best Results

Published by Pari Rafferty on

Vitamin C serum (L-ascorbic acid) is one of the most powerful skin care products .. if you use it right! Here are 4 easy tips to help you get the most out of your new to use vitamin c serum

Remind me .. what’s this Vitamin C stuff supposed to do for my skin?

Vitamin C (when created with L-ascorbic acid) is known for 2 key benefits: it protects and replenishes. One, it’s an antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals (these are the bad guys who age our skin, create sun damage and break down collagen). Two, it replenishes your skin and helps produce collagen (the good stuff that fights fine lines and wrinkles, evens your skin tone and fades dark spots). All that in one bottle, yes girl!

Love it, so how do I get the most out of my new Vitamin C Serum? 

  1. Use it in the AM, every day. Always apply Vitamin C in the morning and use it consistently (like every day!). Skip the nights because it’s an antioxidant and most effective in the day.
  2. Layer it. Always apply Vitamin C serum as your step 2, after you cleanse and before you moisturize and apply sunscreen.
  3. 4-5 drops. This is plenty.
  4. Give it a week. Use your serum every day and you’ll start to see results in ~7 days

We hope you love your new facial serum as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it for you.

    Hi Carolyn – we recommend using our Power-C Serum once/day in the AM for best results because most of the benefits from using Vitamin C is the protection it gives you from the sun.

    The antioxidant properties prevent free radicals, such as pollution, from entering your body and leeching into the skin when you are outside during the day. Vitamin C is an ascorbic acid, which is also known to prevent pigmentation in the skin from the sun (we also recommend using the Power-C with an SPF30+ sunscreen so it can prevent damage, and if the sun has already damaged your skin, the serum can ease the redness of sunburn).

    The major benefits from our Power-C is to make your skin brighter, clearer and to help remove dark spots. The Power-C can be applied at night, but application at night won’t allow you to fully reap all the benefits as it would during the day. Let us know if you have any other questions!
