I was really hesitant to try Vitamin C serum because some times it does not go well with Acne prone skin.But since I paid so much money,I decided to give a try.My personal suggestion is if you have active acne,don't go for it.There is a possibility that Vitamin C can break out oily skin.I was following Epiduo Acne regimen and started using after my acne cleared up.Its been about 6 weeks since I am using it,I must say my skin looks healthy now.My friends ask me what I am doing.It nourishes the skin,lightens dark marks and hyper-pigmentation.Fortunately it did not break me out.I usually apply before I go to bed.It is really expensive but Vitamin C serums are hard to find in India and specially that meets the demands of oily and acne prone skin.If you are using any acne cream then I would suggest that you apply this at alternate nights.After a while we all have to start taking care of our skin,including Vitamin C serum would be very good since it has numerous benefits.
