Vitamin C Serum: A Skincare Routine Must Have

Sharing is caring!

Should I start from all the glories or tell you why you actually need this.

 Vitamin c serum like the name implies contains an amount of ascorbic acid which can be found in many citrus fruits. Vitamin c nourishes the skin in so many ways and I’m going to let you in on the secret just in a moment.

What a vitamin C serum can do for you:

  Vitamin C is an antioxidant which helps in getting rid of free radicals. Free radicals are uncharged molecules that can be highly reactive, this makes them capable of causing cellular damage which can speed up ageing. A vitamin C serum in just the right percentage provides vitamin c to the skin in a way it can be easily absorbed. This types of serum would help get rid of free radicals on the skin, leaving your skin smooth, glowing and an even complexion. Vitamin C serum is hydrating, it’s for all skin types reduces redness, offers a level of protection from Uv rays, fades hyperpigmentation, promotes collagen production and boosts wound healing.

What a Vitamin C serum did for me:

   I added Roushun Vitamin c serum to my skincare routine in January and I’ve seen marvellous results. My skin usually had a rough texture to it cause of enlarged pores but I noticed a major difference when I was most consistent with the serum. It has also gradually faded my acne spot and whenever I popped a pimple I found out that it heals faster and leaves minimal scars compared to before.

You can add the Roushun Vitamin C serum to your routine, it’s quite affordable and available on amazon and jumia ( a Nigeria shopping site)

How to use a Vitamin C serum:

Whenever I used my vitamin c serum. I used it twice a day morning and evening and saw the most results than when using it once a day. If you already have a working skincare routine, you have to tread with caution when adding vitamin c serum as It may not be compatible with your other products like retinoids, niacinamide and chemical exfoliants.  Vitamin C serum is best to use after toning and before you moisturize. Always test out a product whether you have sensitive skin or not to ensure your skin is compatible with the product and to rule out any irritation.

When to use it in a skincare routine:

 Vitamin C serum is best to use after toning and before you moisturize. In a simple routine where you cleanse, tone, and moisturize. It’s best to use the serum after you tone, as toning prepares the skin to absorb the next product.

The best of the best:

Vitamin c is highly unstable, so its best to opt for one which is formulated in a way that keeps it stable for the rest of its shelf life.

The best forms of vitamin c that retains its potency for long are;

  • L-ascorbic acid
  • ascorbyl palmitate
  • magnesium ascorbyl phosphate

They should be formulated water-free, airtight and stored in an opaque jar.

  Vitamin c serum has a lot of benefits and you can get them through consistency. Add this to your routine and see your face have a radiant glow like never before.
