Vitamin-C Skin Care FAQ  

1. How Does Vitamin C in Skin Care Products Fight Against Aging?

Vitamin C is renowned as one of the top vitamins that fight against aging by rehydrating and smoothing the skin as well as by reducing wrinkles. Vitamin C has very high levels of collagen which help damaged and aging skin regain a more youthful appearance. If you’re mostly wanting to improve your aging skin then vitamin C peels and high percentage vitamin C serums are the best to use.


2. Will Using a Vitamin C Serum Make My Oily Skin Type More Oily?

Gel-based moisturizers and serums are actually wonderful for all skin types, including oily skin. The trick is to use a serum that is lightweight in nature and water-based, like Medyskin Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum.


3. What Shelf Life Do Vitamin C Skin Care Products Have?

Vitamin C does have a shelf life, especially products with high percentages. Generally you don’t want to keep a bottle for longer than 6 months after it has been opened.

Our products already come in dark containers that prevent oxygen from entering the bottle as much as possible.
