If you still haven’t incorporated Vitamin C into your beauty routine, now’s the time.
You already know Vitamin C is good for your body. It helps with the repair and growth of tissues, forms collagen, and strengthens your immune system. Those same benefits help when applying the ingredient topically onto your skin. We’re talking antioxidants that will help against pollution, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and also giving your skin that coveted a brighter, more radiant glow. So not only are you taking Vitamin C supplements to protect yourself from within, but you’re also keeping your skin cells healthy when you incorporate Vitamin C serums into your skincare routine.
It’s also worth noting that Vitamin C as an ingredient comes in many forms and names in skincare. If it’s not immediately evident that “Vitamin C” is in the serum, look for its other names, including L-ascorbic acid or ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, ascorbyl palmitate, methylsilanol ascorbate, and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate.
While most people on social media will tell you that you should only use Vitamin C serums during the daytime, Paula Begoun of Paula’s Choice says that it doesn’t matter, and you can use it both during the day and the night. It’s also fine to layer the Vitamin C with other serum types such as retinol and niacinamide. Of course, when applied during the day, you should always finish with sunscreen afterwards.
