Dr. Jayshree Sharad, FAAD Board Certified Dermatologist and Founder of Skin ‘Infinity by Jayshree’ and author of several books has shared information related to this on her Instagram account. He has given the benefits of Vitamin-C serum and also that it can be used in many formulations.
What are the benefits of Vitamin-C serum?
Vitamin-C serum is a very powerful antioxidant which helps a lot in removing fine lines from your face. It also reduces the size of skin pores and is good for problems like hyperpigmentation. It can prove to be a powerful anti-aging product for your skin as it increases the formation of skin collagen. Along with this, it also protects you from UV rays and blue light.
That’s why it is said that Vitamin-C serum can prove to be good.
Formulations of Vitamin-C Serum
How this serum affects your skin depends on its formulation. It is not necessary that one type of serum should affect every skin. For example, a serum with L-ascorbic acid will either prove to be very good or it can be unstable for your skin.
A serum with Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate works and is also stable on the skin. This does not create a reaction situation. Similarly, different formulations have different effects on your skin. So first understand your skin type and then choose a serum for yourself.
What kind of concentration should be there?
The effect on your skin depends on the concentration of Vitamin C in the serum. If it is less than 10% then it may not work at all. If it is more than 20% then it will have a very bad effect on your skin. May cause skin irritation.
Vitamin-C serum is not for this type of skin
If your skin is dry or sensitive then it is very possible that Vitamin-C serum may not work. Apart from this, it can work for all other skin types. Vitamin-C oil will be more effective for dry and sensitive skin. It will also moisturize your skin and at the same time will keep you well.
How can Vitamin C be taken?
Now let’s talk about the forms of Vitamin-C serum. If you have dry skin and still want to use it, then choose a vitamin-C product that has a creamy consistency. Also, if you have oily skin, you can opt for a Vitamin-C toner or serum. Similar vitamin-C powder also comes which is for almost all skin types, but it can dry the skin a bit.
We know that vitamin-C can be good for the skin, but how effective it will be depends on whether you are applying the product accordingly on your skin or not. It is important for you that you choose a skin care product according to your skin only after the advice of the doctor. Which skin problem bothers you the most?
