I've been using CellularSkinRX Vit. C serum which I love, but after a few hours, my face gets an orange tint to it. Has anyone else had this problem? It's noticable enough that I've switched to using it at night so I can wash it off in the morning. I'd really like to be able to use it in the AM for its antioxidant properties and so I can use my copper peptide at night. Thoughts? Thanks!

I've used a sample of this but did not have the same problem you described. In fact I haven't had that problem with any of the vit C serums I have tried (and I'm very pale). How odd! Are you using any other products that might be reacting with the vit C? I'm grasping at straws here really...

Hi,

Maybe its the use of copper peptide and vit C that is causing this Question

I don't use a Vit C serum so I am not expert on this topic. I can remember reading posts in regard to not using C and peptides together.

I am looking forward to hearing from others on this. I am sure there is a simple solution.

I used to find that the cracks in the palms of my hand went orangy when I used the skinceut C... I assume it's oxidation? the cellex hasn't done it tho Confused

I am on my fourth bottle of the Cellular Skin C+ firming serum and have never had any effect like that one. I generally use up a bottle in 8-10 weeks or so. Have yet to see the solution turn color as well. Are you using any self-tanners or bronzing products afterwards? The solution is clear so I wonder how you are turning orange??? It is true that copper will degrade C.

My guess is that guapagirl is right. It's not orange when I put it on, only after a couple of hours. This makes me think that it's oxidation. However, others don't seem to have as much of a problem with this brand as I'm having. As far as the copper goes, I was using it at night, then the C in the morning. Is this too close together?

i've heard many ppl complain that copper peptides turn their skin orange.

I have not heard that about vitamin c serum - and i'm a user of vivier vitamin c serum, and another line before that - never had that problem.

I did some reading and also found reports that copper can turn your skin orange.I would space these two out quite a bit...more than 12 hours....

So just to be sure I'm doing this right...alternate the C with the copper every other morning? That would be 24 hrs between as opposed to 8-12. For those of you who have used both, which have you seen better results with (in terms of clarity, hyperpigmentation, etc.)? I could drop one from my routine entirely, I suppose.

Thanks for all your good advice!

Kara,check out Judy's post on Vitamin C and aging. Has really nice info. The thing with copper is that it doesn't have as much research to support it as C but this could be because it simply hasn't been around as long. I think I would use 1 on 1/2 of my face and the other on the other 1/2 for a couple of weeks and then see what you think. Just be careful not to mix the two. Copper totally degrades the C and makes it pro- instead of anti-oxidant. 24 hours between them seems sufficient to me....But I'm not skincare expert, I just play one on TV, I mean,this board. Smile
