Vitamin C Night Serum 30ml
Formulated to boost collagen and elastin depleted through UV sun exposure. It fades hyper-pigmentation, acne scars or inflammation. An excellent antioxidant that smooths skin tone and strengthens skin.
We combine several ingredients that target each area, as each works in a slightly different way and this results in a more robust, long-lasting result.
Better used at night as Vitamin C works better then and can it can make skin sensitive to sunlight.
Directions: Most people tolerate Vitamin C very well, but if you have not used it before, put a few drops on your forearm before applying to face. If no rash occurs, you can apply it to your face.
A few drops massaged into skin. Avoid eyes and leave for a minute to absorb before applying moisturiser. If skin is oily, no additional moisture should be necessary.
*New research has suggested that it is better to use Vitamin C formulas at night as this is when the body repairs free-radical damage.
