Can you use Vitamin C at night?

Can you use vitamin C in the night routine? I only use sunscreen in the mornings and majority of my products go in my PM routine! Is it just as a effective in the evening or can you only use vitamin c in the morning??

Yes, of course it's fine to use vitamin C at 🌌 night. And it's just as effective! But there are a few ingredients that shouldn't be in the same routine with vitamin C. Here's a guide for your reference. I hope it helps ❣️

Yes. But be aware of this If you use Ascorbic Acid, that will be in a low pH solution. If you use other products with a higher pH, the vitamin C won't be effective. Also, the low pH of the Ascorbic Acid solution will counteract th effectivity of peptides and retinol, that need a higher pH to be effective. So... Are you using vitamin C derivatives? No problem Are you using Ascorbic Acid? You shouldn't mix with peptides and retinol. Many use their peptides an d retinol at night and therefore, opt to use Ascorbic Acid in the morning. Like me

It's ok to use vitamin c both am and pm. I do just that. 🙂 It's recommended to use in the morning because it's an antioxidant and makes a good combo with sunscreen. But it's not ineffective when used in the evening.
