People use vitamin C serum to treat skin imperfections and skin damage. Combined with other skincare products and professional skin care treatments, vitamin C serum can help your skin in many ways. Keep reading to learn about its effectiveness and the potential risks of vitamin C serum.
What is Vitamin C Serum Anyway?
Vitamin C serum is a topical skincare product typically in liquid or gel form. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that impedes the formation of free radicals. Free radicals can break down collagen and elastin, which are two proteins that help skin keep its elasticity.
How Does Vitamin C Serum Help with Acne?
Vitamin C serums may help reduce hyperpigmentation and acne inflammation. Pure Skin Pro’s vitamin C serum contains helpful antioxidants to help heal acne scarring and it is also noncomedogenic (it won’t clog pores). Vitamin c serum can also reduce redness that often accompanies acne.

How Does Vitamin C Serum Help with Wrinkles?
Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant. It improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and brightens your skin’s complexion. Our vitamin C serum also protects your skin from sun damage, which can hasten the signs of aging. Vitamin C serums can’t replace your SPF, though, so please continue to use sunscreen (Read: 5 reasons Why You Need to Make SPF Part of Your Daily Routine)
Can I Use Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Together?
You can use hyaluronic acid, which helps to keep skin feeling hydrated, and vitamin C together. Hyaluronic Acid is a great humectant and is best layered with a complementing moisturizer depending on the skin type. Just keep in mind not all hyaluronic acid is created equal and many over-the-counter hyaluronic acid products are made of molecules too large for the skin to absorb. If you are looking to add a hyaluronic acid, try our Ultimate Hydrating Serum. Also, some products can have an adverse effect on your skin, such as an allergic reaction or pore-clogging. Those with acne should only use products tested on a small area of the skin. Ideally, you should consult a licensed esthetician before using hyaluronic acid or vitamin c. You may not need both initially or may need one vs the other.
How Often Should I Use Vitamin C Serum?
You can use our vitamin C serum twice daily or as suggested by your licensed professional. When trying a new product, however, use it more sparingly to monitor your skin’s reaction in case of sensitivities. Though not typical, it can happen.
How Long Does Vitamin C Serum Take to Work?
You will likely notice skin improvement 4-12 weeks after starting routine use of vitamin C serum. Ready to explore vitamin C serum? I’m ready to get to know you and learn of your needs. Let’s get started on your journey to better skin!
