Vitamin C

Why should I use Vitamin C?  

Vitamin C can be used on most skin types. Using Vitamin C every morning helps prevent damage from both UV and pollution associated with free radicals. Vitamin C can help brighten skin and improve uneven skin tone. Applying an antioxidant such as Vitamin C to the skin can reduce collagen breakdown and reveal a more youthful complexion. 

How to prevent irritation? 

No two people will respond to exactly the same regimen or skincare ingredients. When starting any new product into your routine it is recommended to start slowly, by doing a patch test on a small area such as the side of the neck or inner arm. Using any potent actives you run a small risk of irritation. Testing a product will ensure if this product is right for you. 

If experiencing any irritation from specifically Vitamin C. Taking breaks in between actives and using soothing products as a buffer is advised.  The skin sometimes takes time to adjust to new pH level shifts. It is recommended to use vitamin C two to three times a week at first. Start slowly to reveal a beautiful glow.
