by: Ksenia Igonina, Master Aesthetician

So you’ve finally decided you need a vitamin C serum—congratulations, you are one step closer to achieving a brighter, more youthful skin!

Lucky for you, we’re here to demystify the science behind vitamin C and Obagi’s Professional-Vitamin C serums are essential for healthy skin. It’s a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals, such as those found in environmental pollutants and after exposure to ultraviolet radiation. A vitamin C serum can do various wonders for your skin:

  • Even skin tone; diminished dark spots
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighter skin overall

Our Obagi and Zo skin Vitamin C serums come in different concentrations (10%, 15% and 20%)There are three percentages of L-ascorbic acid available in the Obagi Professional-C product line. A higher concentration isn’t necessarily better than a lower concentration; the difference is in intended use.

Our Pro-C serum 10% is designed for dry, irritated or sensitive skin, Pro-C Serum 15% is designed for combination skin/most skin types and Pro-C serum 20% is best suited for normal-to-oily skin.

All Obagi and Zo skin vitamin C serums should be used in the morning and/or evening after cleansing, and possibly exfoliating and toning the skin in a more comprehensive routine. Apply five to seven drops to the face, neck and chest using fingertips. Always apply vitamin C serums to cleansed skin before makeup and sunscreen application.  See you soon at Javan!
