Frequently Asked Questions
In the world of skincare, various active ingredients become trends and come and go, but one ingredient that remains as our regular mainstay is Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is one of our favorite things to include in our skincare routine because of its multitude of benefits to the skin. Now, you don’t have to look any further than the Obagi Professional-C Serum to get your daily dose of Vitamin C, specially formulated to suit different skin types and deliver great results.
What does the Obagi Professional-C Serum do?
The Obagi Professional-C Serum is a high-performance serum made with pure L-Ascorbic acid, the most potent form of Vitamin C. Daily use of this serum can bring about amazing results to the skin, such as:
Brightening and evening the skin tone. Vitamin C is a vital agent to lighten dark spots and other types of hyperpigmentation to resurface an even, glowing complexion.
Smoothening the skin. Vitamin C triggers the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which improves overall skin texture.
Reducing the signs of aging. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps fade away fine lines and wrinkles so you can retain a more youthful-looking complexion for longer.
Retaining moisture. By keeping moisture inside of your skin, a Vitamin C serum works hand-in-hand with your moisturizer to keep the face looking plump, fresh, and hydrated throughout the day.
Fortifying skin health. Vitamin C strengthens your skin’s defenses against different external factors such as UV rays and pollution.
The Obagi Professional-C Serum is carefully formulated to be a powerful and reliable Vitamin C serum, while remaining gentle and compatible with different skin types. This serum has been optimized to quickly absorb and penetrate to deliver all the goodness of Vitamin C deep into the skin.
How do I use the Obagi Professional-C Serum?
To get the best results, the Obagi Professional-C Serum can be used daily, either as a daytime or nighttime step to your skincare routine.
After cleansing and toning the skin, apply 5 to 7 drops of the Vitamin C serum onto the face, and use your fingertips to gently and evenly spread the serum over the face, neck, and upper chest. You can also use the serum as a targeted treatment for stubborn dark spots on the face.
When using the Obagi Professional-C serum in the daytime, follow up with a moisturizer and a sunscreen as the final steps to your routine.
What percentage of Vitamin C serum should I get?
The Obagi Professional-C Serum 15% is a potent and concentrated serum made with 15% L-Ascorbic acid, but it remains gentle on the skin and is suitable for most skin types.
If you’re looking for an even gentler option, you can opt for the Obagi Professional-C Serum 10%. This serum is formulated with less concentration of Vitamin C to work for dry and sensitive skin types, while still delivering promising results.
We are absolutely in awe of the wonders of Vitamin C to the skin, and the Obagi Professional-C Serum is a fantastic, dermatologist-trusted option to easily incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine.
