2. Can I use other skincare serums with vitamin C tablets, drinks, or gels from Japan?
With Japanese vitamin C tablets and drinks, you don’t have to worry too much about introducing or mixing other skincare serums since they aren’t topical in nature. However, when using vitamin C gels from Japan, be sure to alternate your use of them with other skincare serums on a daily basis or during your morning/afternoon/night skincare routines to prevent interaction between ingredients that can cause skin sensitivity issues.
3. Why does my Japanese vitamin C gel cause my skin to tingle?
Most Japanese vitamin C gels are formulated at low pH levels and high concentration such that they can better penetrate and be absorbed by your skin. If irritation occurs, consider switching to vitamin C gels that are higher in pH levels or lower in concentration, or simply use Sato’s Hakubi C Gel with anti-inflammatory ingredients to provide a soothing skincare enhancement experience.
4. Do I still need to take Japanese vitamin C tablets if I am protecting my skin with SPF?
While sunscreen and other SPF products provide a good first line of defense against sun damage in terms of UVA and UVB rays, there are other damaging free radicals that can still get through to your skin. Japanese vitamin C tablets can be used to neutralise these free radicals, and perfectly complement SPF products to provide complete protection against sun damage. Vitamin C drinks and gels from Japan can also be used in this regard.
