We recommend applying a thin layer of serum to clean skin once or twice weekly. Vitamin C Serum can be applied on the face, neck, or wherever your skin is in need of exfoliation and renewal, keeping away from the eyes.
Note: Be sure to wear SPF as exfoliation can increase skin sensitivity.
High concentration L-Ascorbic Acid serums, or even fresh L-Ascorbic Acid crystals dissolved in water, are great exfoliating options. Because over-exfoliation can cause inflammation and other problems, we recommend careful use of L-Ascorbic Acid serums. Usage once or twice a week is optimal for most skin types.
Our Collagen Serum with MAP (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) is a great alternative for a daily Vitamin C product, as it contains other valuable actives we cannot use in an acidic solution.
Do not worry about waiting for the acidity of the skin to go back to normal (it will take a few hours) before using most other products. If you are using products with complex proteins, such as our EGF or our antioxidant products, it is recommended that you wait at least an hour to ensure the proteins are not damaged.
