Do I need to exfoliate before using vitamin C serum?

Do I need to exfoliate before using vitamin C serum?

 

Exfoliation is defined as “sloughing off the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface.” There are many ways to exfoliate, from a gentle cleansing to microderm abrasion treatments. Exfoliating leaves the skin smooth and fresh, giving you a more youthful appearance. In addition, exfoliating your face allows the more expensive serums and moisturizers to penetrate through the skin.

Benefits of Exfoliating

  • Removes the dead skin cells that make your face appear dull and listless
  • Get better blood circulation
  • For oily skin, you remove excess oil out of the pores
  • With dry skin, exfoliating removes the flakes that appear

Cleanse Your Skin Before Applying Vitamin C Serum

Although exfoliating is good for your skin, over-exfoliating can actually lead to skin sensitivity and irritation. The key is to be gentle to skin, especially the delicate facial skin. Before applying vitamin C for skin, you should cleanse the area to remove excess oil and dirt. Pat the surface dry with a clean towel. Damp skin acts like a sponge, soaking up whatever is applied to it.

Apply two to three drops of your vitamin C serum for face and massage it into your skin. Don’t forget to include your décolletage, an area of your body that is often overlooked. Use just enough serum to dampen your skin. Before continuing with the rest of your morning regimen, let the serum dry properly. While vitamin C serum does repair sun damage, you should also use a sunscreen of at least SPF 15 during the day.

The best face serums include hyaluronic acid and other natural ingredients that tighten, moisturize and strengthen your skin cells. Use the product consistently for best results. Make skin care a priority to keep that youthful appearance.
