Vitamin C serums are acidic, which means they slough away dead cells from the skin's surface leaving it brighter and smoother, speeding up new cell regeneration.
Vitamin C is highly acidic and very bitter, thus when applied to the skin, triggers it to ‘heal’ itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin.
- Apply your Vitamin C before your moisturizer for the best results.
- Vitamin C is quite unstable in its purest form, so look for stable formulas that are mixed with Vitamin E and ferulic acid to balance it out.
- When purchasing Vitamin C, it should be a very light yellowish color (almost clear).
It starts to darken over time, adjusting from yellow to orange to brown and black.
Absolutely do not use If it has turned brown.
- 3-5 drops is the recommended dosage for the entire face.
