Although, to maintain optimal UV protection levels, some recommend applying as often as every 8 hours!
We won’t go that far – and recommend a regimen where you apply Vitamin C 1-2 times a day.
Can you use too much Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, or Ascorbic Acid, is ultimately a mild acid. So if you did somehow find a product that had a very high percentage of Vitamin C, you may mildly “burn” the top layer of your skin.
One study found that you will get increasing skin benefits with Vitamin C serums, but only up to about 20%. This means that after that percentage, it is really just overkill and increases the chance of a burning sensation.
So skip the burn and stick with 15-20% for all of your beauty needs.
Should you use a vitamin C serum or cream?
It honestly doesn’t matter – serum, cream, or gel is really just a description of the “base” that carries the Vitamin C.
As long as you go with a high-quality product, they have most likely done their work selecting a base that absorbs well, and the Vitamin C should be able to get into your skin.
Find a product that you like the feel of or one that contains other skin products that you want to incorporate into your regimen. Because – why not have all the good stuff in 1 bottle?

Vitamin C helps reduce and prevent UV damage to skin.
Vitamin C helps to rebuild collagen which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
You should apply Vitamin C on a daily basis, at night is best.
Taking Vitamin C by mouth does not get into the skin as well as a topical application.
