Vitamin C Skin Care Resources

Achieve skin clarity and environmental protection with Vitamin C skincare products. Vitamin C serums help with hyperpigmentation, and other skincare concerns. Learn how to pick the right serum with our Vitamin C Skin Care Resources.

Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant that’s essential for not only our internal health but also our skin. As we don’t naturally produce it in our bodies, we need to add vitamin C orally or topically—both of which have a multitude of benefits. Vitamin C for the face delivers daily protection against aging, pollution, blue light, heavy metals, and other free radical damage that can cause dullness, premature lines, dark spots, dryness, and rough patches.

With clinically proven benefits to adding daily vitamin C serums to your skincare, it shields skin from damaging free radicals, boost your skin’s defenses, while also delivering major brightening and complexion clarity too. And, if you’re worried vitamin C lightens skin, that’s a skincare myth. Vitamin C is perfectly safe for all skin tones, protecting and promoting your natural glow. Perfect for all skin types—even sensitive, vitamin C is a universal treatment to add to any concern-specific skincare routine. Vitamin C helps acne by helping reduce acne-induced inflammation and improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Vitamin C

Can I leave vitamin C on my face overnight?

"When applying vitamin C for the face, most serums are designed for daytime use, providing antioxidant protection and defending against aging environmental stressors like blue light + pollution," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Can I skip moisturizer after vitamin C serum?

"You'll still need to moisturize after applying a vitamin C face serum. Serums are concentrated formulas that deliver actives deeper into skin. Using a moisturizer after your vitamin C serum helps to add moisture while locking in your serum's benefits," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Do you put vitamin C on wet or dry skin?

"You can apply vitamin C serums to dry or damp skin post cleansing + toning, but avoid applying vitamin C to wet skin. It can make the acidic formula weaker by diluting it," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

What goes first vitamin C or hyaluronic acid?

"If you're applying vitamin C serums + hyaluronic acid separately, apply vitamin C serum first, then add hyaluronic acid after in order to help fortify your skin's barrier and lock in moisture," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Does vitamin C serum remove dark spots?

"Vitamin C serums have many benefits, including brightening and diminishing dark spots + hyperpigmentation. With regular use, your vitamin C serum can help lighten areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin, for a more even, glowing complexion," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Does vitamin C change skin color?

"There are some vitamin C serums that may oxidize on skin, leading to a potential for a stained orangey hue. To avoid this, use within 3 months of opening, or switch to a more stable vitamin C formula like our C-Shield Anti-Pollution Drops," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Can you use vitamin C skincare everyday?

"Yes, include vitamin C in your skincare every day for the best results. It provides antioxidant protection and defends against aging environmental stressors, while brightening + firming skin," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

What is the best time to use vitamin C serum?

"Apply vitamin C drops or serum to your face, every morning as part of your daily skincare ritual. Vitamin C provides daily antioxidant protection and defends against aging environmental stressors and free radical damage," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.
