AM or PM: When is the best time to use Vitamin C Face Oil?

A Vitamin that we have been eating, drinking, and chewing on since childhood; recommended by doctors and mothers alike, Vitamin C is a boon in the hot summer. Think of Vitamin C as a magical healing potion that helps in the formation of collagen, healing of wounds, repairing bone cartilage from wear and tear, and a plethora of other amazing functions that aid the overall growth and development of an individual. What’s more, it also acts as a barrier against damage caused by toxins and free radicals. It is no surprise, therefore, that Vitamin C is a miracle worker on the face and skin.

When applied to the face, Vitamin C penetrates deep into the layers of the epidermis and starts working from within. Not only does it act as an age-defying agent, but it also has a soothing and cooling effect against sun damage.

Unfortunately, the body does not store Vitamin C. Therefore, it becomes doubly important to keep replenishing the vitamin levels in our body. A diet rich in Vitamin C can help; however, if you are looking for that healthy sun-kissed glow on your face to occur quickly and be lasting, then a Vitamin C serum or Face Oil is your best bet.

How Can Vitamin C Face Oil Help?

Vitamin E Face Oil

Face Oils, as the name suggests, are oil-based formulae that help strengthen the cells on your face. Life & Pursuits’ Saffron Face Oil is infused with natural ingredients that are high in Vitamin C.

Turmeric, Saffron, Apricot, Pomegranate, and Argan form the building blocks of this natural, Ayurvedic product. In particular, the goodness of Turmeric extract and the potency of Saffron will help you achieve that healthy glow. These ingredients, among others like Olive Squalene and Apricot oil, are brimming with the miraculous power of Vitamin C. But how can you incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine? A lot of you may have questions about how to achieve the most out of this amazing vitamin. Well, look no further; find all your answers right here.


What is the Best Time to use Vitamin C Face Oil?


You must be wondering, should I incorporate this Face Oil into my morning routine or my night routine? Well, the answer is not as easy as you might expect. You would think that since Vitamin C face oils guard against the effects of sun damage, the best time to use it would be during the day. However, studies reveal that the damaging effects of UV rays continue to occur long after the skin is exposed to the sun. Therefore, to extract the benefits of Vitamin C Face Oil, you need to incorporate it into both your morning and night routines.


As mentioned earlier, your body is not capable of storing Vitamin C, even less so on the skin of your face. However, it is also the same facial skin that receives maximum exposure to the harmful elements. Thus, you need to keep replenishing it.

Therefore, it is recommended that you apply a Vitamin C face oil or serum as part of your morning as well as night routines. When applied in the morning, it acts as a barrier between your skin and the damage caused by the sun. However, it wears off by the end of the day. Therefore, when applied at night, the face oil penetrates deep into the layers of the skin and repairs the damage caused by ultraviolet rays. Sun damage occurs within, deep under the skin, and has longer-lasting effects. Therefore, it requires a product that targets repair - and the best time for any product to work efficiently is at night when your body is at rest.


How to use Vitamin C Face Oil?


Life & Pursuits’ Saffron Face Oil is very easy to use. First and foremost, be sure to cleanse your face with a gentle face wash and pat dry with a clean towel. When using this oil as part of your morning routine, apply a few drops on your face and use your clean fingers to massage it in. Follow this up with a layer of moisturizer or sunscreen to lock it in, and voila! You are ready for the day.


However, using this as part of your night routine takes a little extra time. After cleansing and drying your face, apply a few drops of this face oil. Then, to reap the maximum benefits, use a Gua Sha stone or jade roller to massage the oil into your skin. This enables the skin to absorb the oil better as the stone massages the muscles of your face and makes them more supple.
