Pimples are pesky. After your long struggle to extract them and make sure they're dead and gone, there's still the matter of clearing up those stubborn dark spots they leave in their wake. So what's a girl to do? Get help from a brightening antioxidant, of course!
Enter: vitamin C, an ingredient that can help you brighten pigmentation, reverse sun damage, and even out your skin tone. In the video below, YouTuber Asia Jackson shows us how she gets the most out of her vitamin C serum to maximize it's brightening benefits and we gleaned two useful tips:
1. Vitamin C works better with a low pH.
To be effective, vitamin C needs a low pH level. That said, use a low pH cleanser and follow up with a toner to rebalance your skin.
2. Wait a bit before applying anything on top of your vitamin C product.
In the video, Asia says to let your vitamin C serum sit on your face for 15-20 minutes before proceeding with the rest of your skincare routine. Vitamin C is a strong acid, so waiting a bit for your skin to absorb the serum is key if you want to get all its benefits.
