You want to get your skincare going with Vitamin C serum, here are a few things to take note of.
You should buy a serum with about 10-15% potency because too much vitamin C might irritate your skin.
Vitamin C is quite unstable so you should mix it with sunscreen and other ingredients if you want it to work better.
If your skin is dry, buy Vitamic C with hyaluronic acid. If your skin is oily then buy ascorbic acid type of Vitamin C. If your skin is irritated or gets irritated easily, you should stay clear of Vitamin C for a while.
So, what are the best Vitamin C serums for you?
