More about Vitamin C...
Vitamin C is something that we would recommend to everyone for healthy looking skin.
THE INKEY LIST Vitamin C has a high concentration at 30% and has been formulated using Vitamin C in its pure form, L-ascorbic acid for a low irritation, stable product. If you're new to Vitamin C, or have more sensitive skin, we recommend mixing with other serums, such as Hyaluronic Acid until your skin builds up tolerance.
Vitamin C can be used both in the AM and the PM, however for maximum effects as an antioxidant we would suggest using in the AM as this is when you will get the most of the product, and also in the PM if desired.
You should see the effects of Vitamin C fairly quickly, after around 14 days. Don't be tempted to overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse will not increase the effect.
Always wear sunscreen during the day. Vitamin C does not increase sun sensitivity and can protect against free radicals, however it does not provide sun protection and must be combined with a sunscreen.
When using with other products
AHAs (Glycolic, Lactic, Alpha Hydroxy)
Both are amazing ingredients that can help with healthy looking skin, however it would be best to use Vitamin C in the AM and an AHA in the PM. The acidic PH of both could lead to increased sensitivity and irritation if used together at the same time.
If using a retinol in the evening, stick to using Vitamin C in the AM.
