I just got a sample of a 25% C serum and I can't figure out how to incorporate it into my skin care regimen. (I am hoping it will lighten some spotty sun damaged areas on my face.) I use Tazorac at night, and CP's in the AM before applying my sunscreen and makeup. WHEN do I work in the C Serum??

Hi mountaingirl,

I would use the Vit. C serum in the AM.
At night, use the Tazorac, wait approx.
20 min. and then the CPs.
You cannot use Vit. C and CPs at the same
time as the vit. c becomes ineffective.

I wondered the same thing and wondered whether the copper would be as effective just using once a day and Nanci from NCN said the copper would just take longer to work if only using once a night instead of two times a day, so I use retin A and copper at night and vit c in morning.

You should wait 12 hours (or close to it) after Vit C before applying CP.

Ok...I'm going to put the CP's on tonight around 30 mins after applying my Tazorac. You have no idea how much that is against my beliefs about using Retin A. I'm rather "old school" when it comes to Retin A (Taz) in believing it shouldn't be mixed, moisturized, layered or washed off too soon. I'm all about full blast Retin A, all by itself, as often as possible (at night only of course)....but tonight I will break out of my shell and try something new... Shock Anxious Rolling Eyes Thanks for the suggestions...

Would this be the same regime with Green Cream?

Vit C in the AM, and then Green Cream first CP on top of the Green Cream in the PM?

Anyone who uses the Green Cream with CP I'd love to hear how it is working for you. TIA!

If using Green Cream you need to wait a minimum of 30 minutes before applying anything over it.

Michelle thank you for the reply, so can I assume that the Green Cream will go first then the CP?
