Derm Talk #1 for #COSRXDermRD & Mission Guide
🚩 Topic: The facts behind Vitamin C, Niacinamide & Hyaluronic Acid ft. Dr. Claudia MBBS, PhD (dermatology)
🔎Q1. What is the difference between normal vitamin E and super vitamin E?
A. A study has shown that tocotrienols have better antioxidant potency than tocopherols by a factor of 50 so it is called "Super Vitamin E". Hence, why we chose to formulate The Vitamin C 23 with "Super Vitamin E".
🔎Q2. Should all of the serums be used on damp skin? Or just the HA serum?
A. All of the serums can be used on damp skin.
🔎Q3. What is the best way to combat the stinging sensation using vitamin C? It always stings my skin!
A. This is a higher concentration of pure vitamin C, so it may come with skin irritation. We recommend you patch test on the back of your wrist, or on your neck before use. It can be used every day, however if your skin feels irritated, please apply the product less frequently at first before increasing frequency. If your skin feels severe irritated, we recommend you use with a moisturizer but if your skin still feels irritated, please apply the product less frequently or stop using it.
🔎Q4. When using hyaluronic acid, does damp skin refer to only water on skin or does toner/essence on skin work as well?
A. You can use it immediately after washing your face but if possible, it is recommended to use it at the serum step (after applying a toner, before a moisture cream).
🔎Q5. Hyaluronic acid pairing well with active ingredients. What would be considered an active ingredient?(HA)
A. Active ingredients are the ingredients contained within skincare products that actually work to address the skin concern the product is meant to target. According to dermatologists, an active ingredient is a chemical or molecule in that product that is doing what the product says it’s supposed to do. The ceramide and amino acid in The Hyaluronic Acid 3 are considered active ingredients.
🔎Q6. Can all of the mentioned serums be used together in one routine or is it recommended to use them in different routines?
A. We recommend using one product at a time since The RX contains high concentration of effective and fuctional ingredients. However, The Hyauronic Acid 3 can be used together with other products.
🔎Q7. Is there another product other than vitamin C I could use that will give me the same antioxidant function/ aid in lessening discolouration?
A. Niacinamide 15 serum is can be alternative product to improve pigmentation and act as antioxidants since it includes ingredients such as niacinamide, glutathione, and vitamin E.
