Can I use a Vitamin c serum on sensitive skin?

Most dermatologists call Vitamin C as "Gold in a bottle". It is very effective in treating/improving the following conditions:

  • Pigmentation

  • Dullness

  • Uneven Skin Tone

  • Aging/ Fine Lines

  • Acne

  • Protection from free radical damage

Where this magic potion helps improve a host of conditions, it is also potent enough to cause sensitivity in some individuals. If you have ever felt sensitivity with the use of vitamin C serums or creams then you aren’t alone. Some forms of vitamin C can cause redness, irritation and overall sensitivity in your skin.

Start off with a lower concentration of vitamin c product and gradually move on to more pharmaceutical grade skincare.

When getting spa treatments such as Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Lasers or Microneedling always make sure to talk to your technician about the use of Vitamin C before and after the treatment. Some people experience heightened sensitivity to vitamin C serums after a treatment. This normally happens due to the surface layer of your skin being compromised as a result of esthetic treatments.

If starting to use Vitamin C serum for the first time always do a test patch before applying to full face.

My favourite Vitamin C is C-Shield Anti-Pollution Drops by glo skincare.
