It’s time to run an urgent check up on your vitamin C serum stockpile. That is if you have more than one product containing vitamin C within its ingredients or any pure form of the potent vitamin..
Spring break is around the corner, there will be sun exposure, heat and other factors that might act as a threat on your skin’s stability that you’ve supposedly maintained throughout the long winter months past.. For starters, any retinol use should be subsided and eased off slowly starting now if you haven’t already. Preparing your skin for sun exposure demands stocking up on the master antioxidant when it comes to topical application, vitamin C serum application is a must on a daily basis, and just to remind you, it needs to be applied before your desired sunscreen. This way, you will be protecting your skin from free radical damage while simultaneously empowering both ingredients to work 4 times better than when applied single-handedly..
