Skincare science is an active area of research, which means that there are a lot of competing opinions about the best way to nourish and provide for different skin types. Often, conflicting opinions both have what looks like strong evidence behind them. That can make it hard to make the right choices for your skin, like when to apply vitamin C serum.\r\nThe Case For Vitamin C at Night\r\nThe long-term effects of vitamin C serum and the necessity of a regular skincare routine lead many people to apply at night. The reasons are usually complex, and they often involve the number of products in one’s morning routine. The thought tends to be that applying the serum at night, when there are less moisturizers and cosmetics on the face, means getting superior absorption and use.\r\nThe Case for Vitamin C in the Morning\r\nMore advanced advice about maintaining a vitamin C serum routine with natural skincare products recommends application in the mornings for a variety of reasons:\r\n\r\nVitamin C has photoprotective properties\r\nThe immediate effect on skin helps beautify your face in the mornings\r\nApplication before morning moisturizer only takes a few moments\r\nMoisturizer application is needed after a vitamin C routine anyway\r\n\r\nRecommendations from Timeless Skin Care\r\nThe important step that both sets of advocates miss is to check what is on the bottle. Some types of vitamin C skincare are built for nighttime application, like LAA serums. Some types are built for morning application. A lot of the time, though, you will find that recommendations for an effective therapy emphasize using the serum twice daily.\r\nThe key is to check whether the serum is photoprotective or photooxidative. If it is photoprotective, then you should use it in the morning or twice daily. If it is the latter type, then you will want to use it in the evenings.\r\nFor more information about Timeless Skin Care’s vitamin C products, contact the company.
