Vitamin C is one of the most common ingredients found in skin care products. It not only has anti-aging properties, but also helps to brighten your complexion and restore radiance and clarity to dull skin, making it look healthy and rejuvenated. Products that contain vitamin C include anti-aging serums and moisturizers, and their daily topical use can improve the quality of your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots.
Hyaluronic acid is another common ingredient in skin care and anti-aging products. It’s unique properties allow it to bind and hold moisture, about 1,000 times its weight. This means that it can draw moisture to the skin, allowing it to function as a moisturizer, with great skin plumping and smoothing action to reduce the signs of aging.
Serums and creams containing both hyaluronic acid and vitamin C can improve the quality and texture of the skin as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles, all without any notable side effects.
Best use of Hydro Facial with Vitamin C
Serums are usually applied before creams and moisturizers, layering them from the thinnest to the thickest, and allowing adequate time for each layer to dry before applying the next one.
Vitamin C is typically applied after cleaning and toning. Afterwards, the hyaluronic acid cream/moisturizer/serum is applied. Vitamin C helps to brighten and smooth the skin while hyaluronic acid plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The final step of a proper skincare regime, before stepping outside your house, is applying sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protection.
