Does vitamin c serum bleach skin

by Barb C.

Hi, I read that vitamin C can help lighten skin and maybe even skin spots. So would a vitamin C serum bleach my skin?


Pure, fresh, vitamin C serum can help keep skin looking brighter. But it won't actually bleach the skin, as an in-office procedure would.

But, if you're looking for at-home solutions for lighter, smoother skin you can try products that contain Alpha Arbutin, Kojic Acid, and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, along with a potent vitamin C addition.

Skin Whitening Tips

This serum is specially formulated to reduce the appearance of post-blemish scars, uneven skin tone from sun damage and aging, or dark patches due to hormonal changes.

Just make sure to use a sunscreen daily and do not suntan while using this product.

I would suggest using this product during the fall, winter, and spring and stop during the summer months if you're outside often.

That's what I do, since I Love being outdoors and in my pool.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

I love this serum booster for a lighter skin tone.

I use the Dark Spot corrector you mentioned and it does work.

Dark spots have faded and scars are almost gone.

I first tried it back in early January when you were having a sale and I absolutely love it.

It really evened out my hyperpigmentation in a very short time.

But I'm very careful to use an SPF whenever I'm outside now. I never did before, and I live in S.E. Florida.
