Is vitamin C serum worth it?
It sure is! It’s a super effective anti-ageing skin care product.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can protect cells from environmental damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has skin lightening properties and can brighten your skin.
Vitamin C helps to produce collagen which keeps the skin firm and acts as an anti-oxidant, helping to prevent free radical damage. It keeps skin healthy, clear of blemishes and reduces the appearance of dark spots caused by sun exposure.
When’s the best time to apply it?
It’s best to apply this serum to your skin after washing it with soap and water, but before applying other products like moisturiser.
What to look for
Pure vitamin C serum is the best product to look for, a.k.a L-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C alone however, is not enough to repair damaged skin.
You need other ingredients to help your skin produce more collagen, which is the building block of skin tissue. Look at options that are combined with other things, such as vitamin E and B5, ferulic acid, ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
How often should I use it?
Check the labels, but once a day is usually sufficient to reap the benefits.
Are there risks?
There are always risks so be careful before applying it to your skin. If you are worried about a reaction, apply a small amount to your hand to test it first. It may irritate sensitive skin so apply with caution.
Remember, serums have strong ingredients so don’t overdo it. Usually, applying 2 or 3 drops is sufficient. Read the labels and follow the instructions accordingly.
Vitamin C serums are tremendously beneficial for your skin’s health.
I have been using it for a few months now and have noticed my skin is softer, brighter, bouncier and has less spots and blemishes, which is awesome!
I don’t get the same benefits from moisturisers or any other type of skin product for that matter!
With this one I saw immediate results, so I definitely recommend trying it!
