Do I need to patch test this serum before using it on my face?
It is very important to do a patch test of this serum before using it on your face, to make sure your skin is not sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients in it. You can apply a small amount of the serum to another small area on your skin, such as behind your ear or on your inner wrist, and wait 24 hours to see if you have an unfavourable reaction to it, such as hypersensitivity or skin irritation.
Why does my skin need this serum?
Packed with the brightening and firming properties of vitamin C and niacinamide, this serum fades dark spots, discoloration and hyperpigmentation, helps to combat signs of aging and also contributes to skin firmness and elasticity.
What is the recommended next step after using this serum?
After using this serum, we recommend you follow it up with a sunscreen to protect skin against photo damage. We recommend using the Raaga Professional Sunscreen.
Should use of any ingredients be avoided in combination with Vitamin C?
Typically, one should avoid using products with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) such as Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid, Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) such as Tropic Acid and Salix Acid, as well as Salicylic Acid and Retinol, in combination with this serum, as there is a possibility of skin irritation when two or more of these ingredients are used together.
I have sensitive skin. Can I use this serum?
Yes, this serum is suitable for all skin types. However, if you have acutely sensitive skin, we recommend gradually introducing it into your skincare routine. Begin by using it every alternate day, and if it is suiting your skin, transition into using it daily.
Can I use this serum daily?
