I jumped into the bandwagon years ago on the vitamin C because it was supposed to protect you from the sun and all that good stuff. Now I'm reading that it can easily oxidize once it comes into metals in your skin/etc. So what do you all think, no vitamin C at all, only at night?? can it really be stable? I used for years NCNs vitamin C because it was recommended here, but now I"m wondering if that's one of the great reasons I have so much hyperpigmentation. What are people doing these days for a true, and safe antioxidant serum?

Hi, I think everybody jumped on the bandwagon in the 90s.

It's hardly the buzzword any longer but I do incorporate it into my routine in a serum that features Vit C along with antioxidants/ firmers.

My philosophy in skin care now is akin to a balanced diet. So everything in moderation and I use a bit of everything. More importanly, it has to feel good on the skin. Most pure vit C serum are too acidic and sticky and turn brown in a bottle over time.

I now use MARTIDERM Photo Age serum in 2ml vials so I know it has not been oxidised from exposure.

Main ingredients 15% Pure vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), 5% Proteoglycans, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin F, Antiradical complex and cell repairer.

I use CSI L-AA serum. Itís waterless, so less likely to oxidize. I use it in the morning.

I do find vitamin c brightens my skin.

Be sure to use the recommended 1/4 teas of sunscreen, since using vitamin c serum and not regularly using enough sunscreen may cause hyperpigmentation.
