How and when to use Vitamin C?
Vitamin C serums may be applied once or twice daily. If you’re using it once per day, opt for the morning. Vitamin C applied in the morning will actively fight free-radical damage throughout the day – it can even work as a secondary protector against sun damage. (Don’t skip the sunscreen, Vitamin C won’t protect you from burning, rather it fights what damage may be happening to your cells upon sun exposure.) Apply your serum after cleansing and toning but before moisturizers, creams, and SPF. Just 2-3 drops for your face and another 2 drops for your neck and decolletage will suffice. Pat or gently press the product into your skin until it has fully absorbed.
Until next time!
Stay safe, stay healthy.
