Hey everyone! Writing after a long time as life was crazy busy and also didn’t feel like writing anything. However, found a really interesting ingredient that I am enjoying lately, so thought why not share my experience with you.
Vitamin C! You must be familiar with this which is also known as ascorbic acid or l-ascorbic acid, a vitamin found in various foods and sold as a dietary supplement. But here we are talking about vitamin c which would not only help to brighten up the skin complexion but also would prevent from sun damage. Vitamin C products contain a high concentration of vitamin C (obviously) as an active ingredient, mainly in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid (LAA) as well as a few other varieties. It’s suggested to start with lower concentration for the skin to adapt effectively.
Top 5 Benefits of Vitamin C
- Boosts collagen production to get firmer, smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Repairs any kind of sun damage
- Stops biochemical reaction which causes pigmentations
- Helps to lighten up the hyperpigmentation and acne scars
- Enhances natural defence system to protect from oxidative stress
Serums enjoyed using
- The Ordinary Vitamin C suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% – If you are looking for a good affordable option then I would highly recommend, trying The Ordinary Vitamin C suspension. I have very bad hyperpigmentation around my mouth which wasn’t going after trying so many serums and all. However, now those are lightened significantly after trying out this game-changing serum. One thing that bothers me the most is, it tingles for a while but goes completely off within a few seconds. Nonetheless, it is a little greasy, would take a few moments to sink into the skin, still, it’s a great option to try
- Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum – Once I used up using the ordinary serum, wanted to find something which would not irritate the skin. Don’t get me wrong I love ordinary one but as mentioned it tingles, thus, started using derma e. This one is lightweight, has gel consistency and soothes into the skin within a blink.
Can you use other serums with Vitamin C?
Absolutely. You can use multiple serums and creams in a combination that allows each to work effectively. The most important part is to know which order to use products.
At first, use the thinnest serum applying with your fingertips and gently massage onto the skin. Wait for a while to ensure the serum fully absorbed and then add another one. If you do not permit the serums to sink into your skin between applications, the ingredients are less effective. Thus, I first apply niacinamide which is a water-based B3 vitamin and nicotinamide, then vitamin C and lastly hyaluronic acid.
Lastly, it is totally up to you how you would like to use this amazing serum which would do wonders to your skin. However, you need to create your own skincare regiment which would work for you for the best results.
