Taking serum, putting it on hand, and apply on the face is wrong!
It’s not as simple as you may imagine using vitamin C serum. It requires proper steps and direction. Here we spill the beans of using Vitamin C serum:
Step 1: Wash The Face
Before applying serum, wash your face with whatever cleanser you have on hand or a cleanser appropriate for your skin type. Apply it in the directions or ways written on the back of the cleanser.
Do massage with the cleanser, keep on face for 1-2 minutes, then rinse off the face with water.
Step 2: Dry The Face
After washing, take a fresh or new cloth or towel. Move this piece from head to neck to dry the face. Also, you can wet the towel, then pat it on the face to clean dirt and then take a dry one to soak water completely.
Step 3: Apply Toner
After drying the face, apply a tonner. If you have a tonner in your house, go ahead with it.
If not, choose a tonner that contains hydroxy acids, AHA, or BHA as one of its ingredients.
Hydroxy acids and AHA or BHA (in lower concentration) make vitamin C effective on the skin by lowering the pH value of skin cells.
Step 4: Apply Serum
Take 3-4 drops of the serum. One for the chin, one for the forehead, and two for both cheeks. Pour drops with the help of a dropper directly on the face. Massage and pat your face gently with your fingertips. It will help the serum to move down into the skin.
After its application, you may feel serum sticky, but it gets normal within 20 seconds of absorption.
If your skin feels tingling, it’s normal during the first 1-2 weeks. Consult a dermatologist if you are experiencing severe irritation.
Yes, there is a solution for sensitive skin. In this scenario, dilute the vitamin C serum with any moisturizer. Take 2 drops of serum and a pea-sized moisturizer. Mix them on the palm and use them on the face.
The best way to use this product is to apply it twice a day for 30 days to see the results you want.
Step 5: Apply Moisturizer
After the serum, apply moisturizer on the face. Or apply the eye cream under the eyes. It may use in the morning as well as at night. Use in the morning with sunscreen and alone at bedtime.
