How do I use the Vitamin C Serum?
- Cleanse, exfoliate, and tone skin, pat dry.
- Apply a thin layer of serum, allow to dry.
- Moisturize skin.
How much Vitamin C Serum should I use?
It only takes a few drops to create a thin layer of serum on your skin.
Should I use the serum in the morning, evening, or both?
For the fastest, most dramatic results we recommend applying the serum under moisturizer both in the morning and the evening.
How long will it take to get results?
Most customers report softer, brighter skin within the first few days of using the serum. After two to three weeks of consistent use you should see softer texture, more even tone, greater brightness, and a more moisturized and plump appearance to your skin. Results vary from person to person depending on skin type, skin condition, and frequency of use. Generally full results are achieved in six to eight months of continuous use.
Will the serum take away my wrinkles?
We have heard from many customers who see a softening of fine lines and wrinkles using our Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is a safe and natural alternative to other invasive and aggressive skincare treatments. With deeper creases, we recommended using the Vitamin C Serum consistently both morning and evening for an extended period of time, at least six months for optimal results. Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and MSM are ingredients known to plump skin cells and promote collagen production.
Will the Vitamin C Serum fade age spots or sunspots?
Customers are sharing their amazing results using the serum on age spots and sunspots. We recommend using the serum consistently both day and night for an extended period of time. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free radical damage from sun exposure.
What is the normal color of the serum?
The normal color range for any serum truly containing 20% Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) will range from slightly cloudy to opaque. The color can vary some from batch to batch as we bottle the natural and organic ingredients in very small batches to ensure you get the freshest product possible. The type of Vitamin C we use oxidizes at a much slower rate than L-ascorbic Acid and other types of C.
What is MSM?
MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane is naturally occurring sulfur found in plants and is present in small amounts in many foods and beverages. It’s a nutrient that is found in well know super foods and is anti-inflammatory. In addition to making the skin smoother and more hydrated, it also helps skin cells retain their pliability and flexibility.
What is the percentage strength of your Hyaluronic Acid Serum?
Hyaluronic Acid is listed fourth in our ingredient list, which shows that it has a significant presence in the serum. The exact percentage is proprietary information because it is a big part of what makes our C Serum superior.
What Is The Shelf Life / Expiration Date?
TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum is an advanced formulation that uses Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate Vitamin C (SAP), which is a much more stable form of vitamin C than L-Ascorbic Acid, which is highly unstable. Because our SAP formulation is so much more stable and potent than the older L-Ascorbic serums, we are able to provide a guaranteed 2-year shelf life without adding any harsh preservatives.
Our lab formulates fresh batches of our vitamin C serum every week. On average our bottles sit on the shelf for less than 7 days before being purchased and shipped. For this reason we offer a simple expiration time of, “2 Years from Date of Purchase”, and “1 Year from Opening”.
Does this product contain parabens?
No, TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum does not contain parabens.
Are your products tested on animals?
Absolutely not! TruSkin Naturals is an animal friendly company. We never have and never will test on animals.
