Vitamin C in Skincare: Myths Debunked for Optimal Results

The secret to many things, health, and beauty, Vitamin C... By now, we all know it’s such a beneficial element in our everyday lives. And our skincare. Yet there are still many myths around it. We are here to bust them and sprinkle you with some facts so you can be confident in using Vitamin C in your everyday skincare routine. Ready to shine bright?


Myth #1: Vitamin C is too harsh for some skin types

Fact #1: Vitamin C works well for all skin types

The truth is, Vitamin C works well for all skin types. You just have to find the best version for yourself. With products that include a lower percentage of Vitamin C, you won’t have to worry even if you have sensitive skin. The lower it is, the more gentle the formulation is which will help you bring out the best benefits of Vitamin C without a single sign of irritation.


Myth #2: Vitamin C doesn’t mix well with other ingredients

Fact #2: Vitamin C might be picky but it loves company

Vitamin C is sure a sensitive ingredient, but it can actually enhance its benefits if it is combined with the correct ingredients. Klairs' newly launched Vitamin C Charging Serum pairs the vitamin derivative with Niacinamide. This combination works magic for evening out the skin tone, fading hyperpigmentation, and even helping to firm the skin. Using other acids and retinol can also boost your skincare routine, but make sure to space these out within your routine to not layer too much acid on top of each other. For example, if you use retinol in your evening routine, include your Vitamin C product in your morning routine.


Myth #3: You can’t use Vitamin C products in the morning

Fact #3: Vitamin C helps against daytime radicals

No, using Vitamin C products in your morning routine won’t cause sun sensitivity. Quite the opposite actually. As a great antioxidant, it works like a shield that protects the skin against daytime environmental stressors that could speed up the aging process and leave your skin looking dull. So layered under your SPF, Vitamin C will help protect your skin and keep it radiant and glowy.


Myth #4: Vitamin C is just a trend

Fact #4: Vitamin C is here to stay

There are definitely some products out there that are trending, but Vitamin C itself is not just a passing trend. This ingredient is proven to work wonders in brightening dull complexions, fading spots, improving elasticity, and promoting a youthful glow. With all these benefits, Vitamin C is clearly here to stay.


Now that we've debunked some myths and sprinkled you with Vitamin C facts, it's time to implement this knowledge. The 3-O-s Next Level Package can help you incorporate Vitamin C into your daily routine, and let your skin soak up all the benefits. The pack is specifically curated to promote well-aging and pairs Vitamin C with complementing products for a full routine to fight signs of aging, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration. And if you’re just starting out with Vitamin C products, here’s an extra tip for you: store them in a cool, dark place to protect them from oxidization. This will help maintain all their superpowers and you’ll enjoy their benefits longer!
