How Many Drops of Vitamin C Serum Should I Use?

April 10, 2018


Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help your body build collagen and prevent ultraviolet-induced photodamage. It is valued in cosmetic products for its ability to even out skin tone and create a smoother, brighter appearance.

If you’re looking for a vitamin C and E serum that is non-greasy, you’ve found it. Our Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C Serum is formulated to be used on all types of skin, including oily and combination types. It contains quality ingredients like Vitamin C, Matrixyl 3000, and Hyaluronic acid to deeply nourish your skin and bring out its most beautiful features.  

How Do I Apply Timeless Vitamin C Serum?

When applied consistently and regularly, our serum has anti-aging effects and can reduce fine lines and age spots. Here’s how to use Timeless Vitamin C Serum for best results:

  1. Clean your skin with a gentle cleanser
  2. Apply 2-3 drops of our Vitamin C Serum to your fingertips
  3. Gently smooth the serum onto your skin, working in small circles
  4. Consistently apply the serum both morning and night, after cleansing

For maximum smoothness and moisture, apply Arbutin Map Kojic Acid Skin Lightening Cream to your skin after you’ve applied the Vitamin C Serum.

Should Vitamin C Serum Be Refrigerated?

Our Vitamin C serum does not need to be refrigerated, but you may choose to do so if you want to prolong its shelf life. Just keep in mind that the formula may become thicker when it gets cold, so you’ll want to warm a few drops on your fingers before applying it to your face after cleansing.

What Are the Other Benefits of Vitamin C Serum? 

Vitamin C hyaluronic acid serum is more than an anti-aging treatment. It benefits your skin in several other ways as well. When used in combination of an SPF50 sunscreen, the serum can protect you from damaging UVA and UVB rays. In addition to protecting from short-term redness, it prevents sun-related dark spots. Vitamin c serum improves the hydration of the skin to make it feel softer to the touch as well. Some studies even show that the serum can help your body to heal small cuts or blemishes more quickly.

How Fast Will the Serum Give Me Results?

Like most good things in life, good things come to those who wait (but not for long). Although benefits are not instantaneous, most users see results within a few weeks. Research shows that the average person sees results after 12 weeks of use, but you must consider other factors as well. If you don't use the serum regularly, it may slow the process. Drinking, smoking or using drugs also slows it, but eating healthy and exercise can speed up the results. 

What Should My Vitamin C Serum Look and Smell Like? 

Fresh vitamin C serum should be clear or very pale yellow and should have little to no odor. As you begin to use the serum, opening the bottle and exposing it to light and air will cause the oxidation process to begin. Over time, you may notice the color getting slightly darker or the odor changing slightly. It is still safe to use it, although once it becomes too dark in color or has a more pronounced odor, it will be less effective. To keep the serum fresh for as long as possible, store it away from sunlight and ensure the seal is tight. Avoid keeping it open for longer than it takes to get a few drops.

Our natural skincare products are made with quality ingredients, some of which function as fungicides and bactericides to keep the formulas fresh and free from microorganisms. To keep your skin youthful, firm, and glowing, use our Vitamin C Serum in combination with our other natural, paraben-free skincare products.

Now that you know how to use vitamin C serum and what to expect while using it, it's time to add it to your skincare routine. Our Timeless Skin Care products is an excellent place to start shopping.
