Doctors have long heralded the benefits of Vitamin C as part of a healthy diet, so it’s no wonder that it’s just as beneficial for our skin. Even for sensitive skin types, various formulations of this powerful antioxidant will help fight free radicals which are responsible for destroying healthy skin cells and breaking down collagen. A skincare regimen that includes Vitamin C serum provides an overflowing of bounty of goodness for your skin, giving it a vibrant glow. Here are the benefits of using Vitamin C serum morning or night.
Using Vitamin C in your Morning Skincare Routine
If you are wondering when to apply Vitamin C serum on your face, use the serum right after cleansing or toning, as the first layer in your morning skincare regimen. The serum is the perfect addition to your morning routine, it brightens your skin and provides the following benefits:
- Protects against sun damage
- Assists collagen production
- Minimizes dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles
- Evens skin tone
- Hydrates the skin
Unless you have a sun sensitivity, consider Vitamin C serum in your morning routine to boost your protection against the damaging effects of the sun’s rays and other environmental factors, such as air pollution. Follow the application of Vitamin C with a moisturizer and sunscreen.
Using Vitamin C in your Evening Skincare Routine
A nighttime beauty regimen is designed to help your skin repair and rejuvenate itself while in restorative mode. For skin types that are more sensitive to the sun, using a Vitamin C serum in the evening will help build up your skin’s daily defense against UV rays.
20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum contains L-Ascorbic Acid, the most effective and bioavailable Vitamin C; however, one of the best Vitamin C serums for oily skin or sensitive skin types is Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum. Known as the ‘Essential’, this Vitamin C serum contains a less potent derivative of Vitamin C called Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and also includes Matrixyl®️ 3000 to firm and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate.
Use Vitamin C Serum for Both Your Morning and Evening Routines!Whichever Vitamin C formulation and strength you find is best suited for your skin type and concerns, any addition to your morning and evening routines will brighten, clarify and protect your skin!
