"This vitamin c serum is highly recommended for people who have sensitive and acne prone skin like me. Trying a new product on my face is always a stressful thing for me, so even after all the great reviews I ordered this serum with a bit of trepidation. Prompt delivery and good packaging ensured a smooth purchase.
My skin is highly sensitive, allergic to dust and even aloe Vera and Multani mitti. Tends to release a lot of oil in a short duration of time and mixed with sweat it’s a recipe for disaster in terms of clear skin. This serum goes a long way to ensure that my skin gets the right care it deserves and helps in keeping my skin acne free, spotless with reduced scarring/blemishes.
I use it twice daily, morning and evening, and at any time after washing my face.
For any who care to know the process:-
1. Wash face with a mild cleanser like cetaphil(highly recommended).
2. Pat dry gentry, no scribing or harsh movements.
3. Take two pumps of the serum on the tips of one palm, distribute to the other my rubbing/tapping finger tips, then pat onto your skin. Again, do not rub it into your skin, or massage it trying to get your skin to absorb it. This aggravates sensitive skin and can result in acne, bumps, etc.
4. Once it is off your fingertips but yet to be absorbed by your skin, press your open palm against various parts of your face like you’re trying to force it be absorbed. That won’t happen actually, but the motion helps to stimulate the layers of your epidermis. Do this for like a minute or two.
5. Following this wait for two minutes, attend to your hands or hair or whatever, then apply another moisturiser that is suitable to your regular skin type. I use two different ones, turn by turn, either dot &keys’ lavender mattifying face moisturiser or cetaphil dam daily advance ultra hydrating lotion. Application process same as above.
6. I follow this up with a sunscreen, again suitable for your skin type. I use sunprotekt.
I can say with all honesty that the above mentioned routine has improved my skin tremendously, it’s glowing, less oily and definitely less spotty then before, with next to no occurrence of acne bumps at all."
