Forget everything you know about vitamin C serum. Well, except for the part where it helps produce collagen, repairs signs of aging, and brightens skin. But we’ve always been told to slather it on in the morning… Well, turns out that the night time may well be the best part of the day to apply this wonderful vitamin.
Because vitamin C serum helps protect your skin from free radicals, most dermatologists have recommended applying it in the morning to prevent damage during the day, according to Allure. But given the newest data, which shows that UV damage continues for hours after you’ve left the sun, perhaps we should also be using antioxidants, like vitamin C, in the evening to fight post-sun sun damage.
Plus, there is also a lot of evidence to say that wearing antioxidants at night still helps you fight sun damage the next day. Your body builds up a storage of antioxidants as you use them, so using vitamin C serum at night will help guarantee your body has enough ready to go in the morning when you need them most.
No matter when you layer on your vitamin C, make sure to never use it within a few hours of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or retinol (yes, that even includes face washes and spot treatments) to avoid burning, stinging, and redness.
