What is Vitamin C serum & Benefits of it?
Vitamin C serums have been touted as cure-all products that beauty bloggers love to claim can help almost all common skin concerns—including sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, under-eye bags, even out skin tone, hydrate skin and protect it from pollution.
Also known as ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant found in many skincare products such as serums, moisturisers and mask. It uses electrons to neutralise free radicals lingering on the surface of the skin. Additionally, it blocks the enzyme responsible for melanin or pigmentation production, which means it brightens skin and prevents dark spots.
How do I use Vitamin C Serum?
The most effective way to use vitamin C serum is by applying it to clean, dry skin. Cleansing the skin prior to use clears any obstacles that might prevent Vitamin C from actually reaching your skin’s barrier, and product absorption is more efficient on dry skin because the product doesn’t have to interact with moisture. Use it twice a day "in the morning and at night" and follow with your favourite moisturiser to seal in the serum and further hydrate the skin.
