Radiant, youthful-looking skin is the ultimate dream, isn’t it?
In your quest for flawless skin, you might have looked up and tried several skincare products and found the wonders of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. Both have gained immense popularity in the past few days due to their skin rejuvenation and anti-aging properties. Many have started incorporating these two together into their skincare routine.
That brings us to the pressing question – Can you use Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Serum together?
The answer is yes! Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, and HA is known for its hydrating effects. Combining them can help you garner their unique benefits.
The Power of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C
The main cause of premature skin aging is continuous UV radiation exposure. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and vitamin C are skin repair ingredients that offer your skin anti-aging benefits and reduced dark spots and wrinkles.
Vitamin C enhances the elasticity of the skin, adds moisture, and evens out your skin tone. Hyaluronic acid can help you regain your skin glow by fighting the signs of aging.
But, can you use Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid together? Let’s see what the experts say about these powerhouses.
Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is referred to as ascorbic acid and is one of the active ingredients used in many serums and creams. Its antioxidant properties rejuvenate the skin and promote collagen production.
This significant vitamin protects your skin from sun damage by decreasing the formation of free radicals, while reducing hyperpigmentation and promoting healing.
Many studies have found that the application of vitamin C also offers other skin benefits, including skin damage repair, acne treatment, skin protection against pollution, and enhanced luminosity.
No wonder many are obsessing over vitamin C serum! But, before you pick the first vitamin C serum off the shelf, make sure you read the ingredients. Many products rely on L-ascorbic acid, which may cause skin irritation.
What makes our Advanced Vitamin C Serum different is that we incorporated Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) as the key Vitamin C active ingredient. SAP is a naturally occurring derivative ascorbic acid, that is more stable yet, highly effective. It not only prevents irritation but decreases oxidative stress and slows the aging process.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Did you know that almost half of the hyaluronic acid in the human body is in the skin? It works by binding to water molecules to retain moisture. Unfortunately, excessive or prolonged exposure to sun radiation, pollution, and tobacco reduces the amount of this acid in your complexion.
Using hyaluronic acid on your skin can prevent this decline and hydrate the skin. As a result, you will notice a visible decrease in the signs of wrinkles and redness.
The skin hydrating ability of hyaluronic acid makes it one of the top skincare ingredients in the market. Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum utilizes botanic hyaluronic acid, which is a plant version of this ingredient that has been found to work efficiently on the skin. It penetrates deeper to moisturize and repair tissues, making your skin softer and healthier.
Using Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid
Now that you know about the advantages of using both of these skincare products, you might be wondering how to combine them to attain their benefits. Here are two ways you can use vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid together:
The general rule of skincare products, including serums and creams, is that the thinnest substance must be applied first, and the thickest should be applied last. Therefore, apply vitamin C and follow it up with your Hyaluronic Acid serum.
- Cleanse and gently pat to remove the excess water on your skin. You face should be slightly wet.
- Pour two to three drops of vitamin C serum to your fingers.
- Massage it into your skin with a gentle circular motion.
- Give it a few minutes to penetrate into the skin.
- Next, apply the hyaluronic acid using the same technique.
You will feel your skin becoming more refreshed.
- After cleansing your face, apply the serum on to your face, neck and decollete. Wait a minute or two so it gets properly absorbed into your skin.
- Next, apply a light moisturizer such as the Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl to further plump up your skin and seal in all that goodness.
If you are preparing your skin in the morning, don’t forget to use a good SPF before you head out in the sun to give your skin additional sun protection.
Tips and Reminders
Here are a few tips to help you use these serums to enjoy optimal results:
- Only applying vitamin C or hyaluronic acid alone may have a drying effect on your skin. Make sure to follow with a moisturizer such as the Intensive Retinol Moisturizer or the Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl for best results.
- Always select a serum as per your skin type. For instance, a water-based serum is suitable for oily skin, and oil-based ones are better for normal to dry skin types.
