Frequently asked questions
01. Can I use Vitamin C serum everyday?
Yes, you can use Vitamin C serum every day. In fact, the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C + Facial Serum has a gentle formula, which makes it suitable for all skin types. However, we recommend doing a patch test 48 hours prior to application to avoid any adverse reaction. Additionally, if you have very sensitive skin, you should introduce it gradually in your routine. You can start by using it once a day for about three to four times a week. Then, after about two weeks, you can move on to using it twice a week, every day.
02. How do you apply Vitamin C serum at night?
Always start by cleansing your face. If you wear makeup, make sure to double cleanse and then apply a toner. Next, take two to three drops of the serum and pat it on your skin. Finally, apply a coin-sized amount of the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Night Crème to lock the moisture in.
03. What can you not mix with Vitamin C?
Certain ingredients reduce the efficacy of Vitamin C and prevent it from giving you the desired results. Therefore, make sure to not apply skincare products that contain active Vitamin C over products that contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, AHAs and BHAs, retinol and niacinamide.
