I usually apply before bed after cleansing, toning then C serum and then moisturize. Is this time best????
As some have said, using it at night as well might be something to consider. Not sure exactly the amount of free radicals it blocks. I've seen no studies showing just how many. Your first and by far most important line of defense is a high quality, high spf/ppd photo-stable sunscreen.Oh sorry, and is the only benefit to using it in the morning for extra sun protection and does it block out a substantial amout of free radicals? Thanks for the group that ALL of you are and for the excellent help for an interested newbie like myself.
Well I dont know about guru...I'm good at finding info. that makes sense.Peri, your post just made me recall something I read somewhere regarding antioxidants + free radicals.
The gist of it, was that a protective serum (C or any antioxidant type), will attack free radicals, and then are rendered useless, once they have killed the free radical... (I can liken it to when a bee stings someone, they die shortly after..)
This leads be to believe that perhaps it wouldn't be a bad thing, to apply a C or antioxidant serum morning + afternoon... (Personally I am rhino hyde, and my skin can take anything I dish out.. Also, I live in south Florida, so I need all the help I can get fighting the free radicals produced by the dreaded UV rays..
Verrry interesting! I would love your take, since I consider you the guru of all things sun/UV related..
Humm...good question?? Pomegranate, Idebenone, Lutein/Lycopene (although they may turn you redLike which ones, for instance?
I think that's a good thought! Would you keep it in the frig or how would you keep it from oxidizing? Or would you just mix up a pinch of LAA and dist water every hour or so and splash it on?
Why not hook up a spritzer to your computer screen so it automatically spritzes you periodically? LOL
Yes, that would be prudent! But back to the spritzer thing...I got this idea when I got blasted by that dang produce spritzer in the grocery...you know the one? You're reaching to look at the zucchini and you get sprayed in the face. Then your mascara melts and you don't look so good for flirting in the produce aisle!
Maybe keep the batch in the fridge and just take along a tiny amount every day and not put in the fridge. Maybe have a preservative in it such as phenoxyethanol.
