How to Combine Vitamin C in Korean Skincare Routine.

The Ingredients to Mix it with and Errors to Avoid.

Today we talk about Vitamin C and the ingredients you can combine it with to enhance your Korean skincare routine. In fact, these simple rules can be particularly useful in this period, when you need to support your skin in the change of season before the winter months.

At the end of the summer you may find yourself with a complexion that is not as relaxed and shining as you would like. This is often due to the fact that during the summer the skin barrier has definitely weakened due to a more active and often not too regular lifestyle. And it is precisely now that vitamin C can come to our aid.

Vitamin C: Properties For the Skin.

Vitamin C is a key antioxidant for youthful, firm, radiant and even skin tone.

Vitamin C: General Guidelines – Always, Sometimes, Never.

What are the ingredients Vitamin C can be combined with? And what are the positive effects or negative consequences?

But before we begin, the most important rule.

LISTEN TO YOUR SKIN!

Each leather has unique characteristics. Make sure you always give her only what she really needs.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant with a slightly acidic pH. But even though it is a panacea for the skin, Vitamin C only gives its best with certain ingredients. Particularly those with sensitive skin should pay more attention when mixing it. So what are the ingredients to combine Vitamin C with? How can I maximize its contribution in my Korean skincare routine? And most importantly, what are the ingredients with which Vitamin C should not be combined to avoid nasty surprises and harmful effects on the skin?

Vitamin C + SPF

ALWAYS

We all know how important sunscreen is.

Vitamin C can amplify the effect by neutralizing free radicals from sunlight penetrating the SPF.

Apply your daily sunscreen on Vitamin C.

Vitamin C + Niacinamide

ALWAYS

Those who say that these two ingredients should not be mixed, perhaps are not aware of the latest research in dermatology, which claims that, generally, layering or combining products containing these ingredients is no longer a taboo.

WARNING:
SENSITIVE SKIN: Avoid unwanted redness by using these two ingredients in two different routines.

Vitamin C + Vitamin E

ALWAYS

Combining these two important vitamins amplifies the action of Vitamin C and helps correct light damage when applied in addition to sunscreen.

Vitamin C + Retinol

ON TIME YES

This mix stabilizes Retinol and increases its effectiveness. If the skin tolerates it without unexpected irritation then they can be used in the same routine, but always in addition to sunscreen.

Sensitive skin? Then use Vitamin C in the morning and Retinol in the evening.

Super sensitive skin? Then it’s better to alternate them with an interval of one day.

Vitamin C + AHA

ON TIME YES

Both ingredients have a more or less similar acid pH, which makes them easily complementary and combinable.

Sensitive skin? Both ingredients can be irritating, but it’s best to split them up: Vitamin C by day and AHA by night.

Benzoyl Peroxide + Vitamin C
NEVER

Benzoyl Peroxide cures acne by oxidation, eliminating the bacteria that generate it. Vitamin C is an antioxidant. Combining them reduces the effectiveness of both, as well as generating potential irritation and dryness.

ATTENTION: it is better to separate them, using them in different routines or, even better, on different days.
