Vitamin C crystals for face, is there a skin ph problem?
Can you tell me how to use vitamin c on my skin? I'm afraid it might be too harsh since the ph balance is usually low for vitamin C.
P.S. I like your site and refer to it all the time.
Thanks for your email. I'm glad to hear you find this site helpful. The vitamin C for skin use that I use and recommend is pH balanced (between 4.5 and 5.5) and in a special serum organic mixture of emollients, vitamins and aloe vera juice. It's also kosher too. and vitamins and is very concentrated at 16%.
Plus, this vitamin C serum is mixed up fresh, right before you use it. This is an awesome serum and I will be posting my before and after pictures in a few weeks.
Over time, many people see an improvement in all over skin tone and firmness. Some see a great improvement in age spots, brown spots, and lighter freckles.
It's best to use this vitamin C serum with an exfoliating cream to enhance results and smooth the skin. I find I get a more dewy, fresher appearance after a few weeks of using it twice a day.
The product comes with pure vitamin C crystals in a small vial and a small bottle with a pipette. Once you recieve the product, pour the vitamin C crystals into the bottle, replace the cap and then shake well. Give it a few minutes so the vitamin C crytals can dissolve. Actually, this took almost 1/2 an hour for. Then shake well again.
Now when you're ready to use, squeeze a small amount into the pipette and apply it to the palm of your hands. Rub well and pat all over your face, neck, chest and don't forget the top of your hands too.
Since there are no preservatives, it's best to use this up within 2 months, or the vitamin C will begin to oxidize. This means it starts to lose it's potency. It won't harm your skin, but you won't be getting that great antioxidant protection/results as you would with a fresh batch.
Also, this pure vitamin C serum is free of fillers, fragrance, and additives like silicone. I'm sure you'll be truly amazed as I was and once you start using it, you'll be hooked :-)
