Vitamin C is a good anti-aging agent. Actually, our skin has an anti-aging protein called ‘collagen’. Vitamin C serum boosts the skin’s collagen. Collagen keeps our skin firm i.e. tight and works to reduce premature aging.
Reduces pigmentation –
Along with this, it also reduces pigmentation to a great extent. Because vitamin C reduces the ‘melanin’ in our skin. Due to this the dark spots or spots on our skin, or uneven skin, become light.
But it is also worth noting that if your pigmentation is very deep or you have ‘melasma’, then it will not be cured with the use of vitamin C serum only, but for this, you will need to consult a good dermatologist.
How to apply Vitamin C Serum so that we get the best results?
For the patch test, apply a drop or two on the wrist or behind the ear and leave it overnight so that it can be known that you are not getting any redness or itching or rash etc. by applying it.
The normal Vitamin C serums that are available in the market do not cause any allergies or rashes, etc., as they are a well-balanced formulation. But homemade serums can sometimes cause irritation. Therefore, whenever you use a homemade serum, do a patch test first.
Application, How to apply
First of all, clean the face thoroughly with the help of a cleanser or face wash.
Take 3 to 4 drops of Vitamin C serum on the palm, and apply it well all over the face.
Then after 5 minutes, apply any good moisturizer and sunscreen that suits you.
How many times to apply?
Suggested – applying aloe vera on face
One to two times a day. Because it has good absorbent capacity. Therefore, once applied, it can provide moisture to your skin for about 72 hours. Then whether you wash the face or rub it no matter how much. Its effect does not go away. That is to say, it gives moisture to the skin from inside.

How old are you? Because skin damage is less in young people, the product results are visible more quickly.
How is your lifestyle? What is the exercise routine like? You don’t drink alcohol? All these things also make a big difference, in giving benefit or result of a product on the skin.
