It’s one of beauty’s buzziest ingredients, but what do we really know about Vitamin C, and what is the best way to incorporate it into our daily routine? For starters, Vitamin C is loaded with antioxidants, which are key in treating and preventing signs of aging including dullness and discoloration. In fact, you can start to see an improvement in your complexion after just a few applications of this powerful ingredient - so be sure to use daily.
But, apart from the most commonly known benefit, there are plenty of other uses for Vitamin C in your skincare. For example, did you know about Vitamin C’s powerful healing properties? Not only are antioxidants effective against discoloration, but they’re also key to healing injured skin due to sunburns and other inflammation. So, the next time you notice some irritation on your skin, try applying a small amount of your favorite Vitamin C serum onto the irritated areas and watch the magic unfold.
Now that you know the benefits of Vitamin C, it’s important to be familiar with the optimal ways to incorporate into your skincare routine. Vitamin C is a highly volatile ingredient, so for starters, be sure to keep your serums away from direct sunlight, preferably stored in a cool, dark place like a bathroom cabinet. We recommend using a lightweight Vitamin C serum like our Collagen Booster & Restoration Serum (https://palmettoderma.com/collections/serum-products/products/collagen-booster-restoration-serum) as a first step in your routine, just after cleansing. Give the serum 1-2 minutes to absorb fully into your skin before applying your next products so that you can maximise the powerful benefits of the serum. Et voila! You’re all set from there. Vitamin C is usually gentle enough for use twice daily, so apply liberally and reveal your glowing results - you won’t regret it!
