How To Use Vitamin C For Dark Spots 

L-ascorbic acid is the best vitamin C for skincare, so look for a serum or treatment with it. Get 10-20% concentration for best efficacy.

Choose the Right Product 

Check for allergic reactions by patch testing a tiny area of skin before applying vitamin C to your face. Wait 24 hours for no irritation before continuing.  

Patch Test 

Clean and dry your face. Before using vitamin C, remove debris, oil, and makeup with a gentle cleanser.  

Cleanse Your Face 

Apply a little vitamin C serum on your fingertips. Apply the serum gently on dark patches and hyperpigmentation. Before using other skincare products, let the serum soak.  

Apply Vitamin C Serum 

Vitamin C can make your skin more sun-sensitive, so use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or greater sunscreen during the day. This will prevent sun damage and black spots from worsening.  

Use Sunscreen 

For maximum effects, use vitamin C regularly in your skincare. It should be applied once or twice daily, depending on skin tolerance and product recommendations.  

Consistency is Key 

For dark spots, vitamin C can take weeks to work. Be patient and use the product regularly to see results.

Be Patient 

Try vitamin C with niacinamide, AHAs, or kojic acid for stubborn dark spots. These chemicals boost vitamin C's brightening and eliminate dark spots faster.  

Consider Combination Therapy 

See a dermatologist for severe or chronic hyperpigmentation or vitamin C responses. They can tailor treatments to your skin issues.
