c25 Cream Review

I purchased Dermaceutic C25 face cream a month ago from Elmes Skincare Clinic after an extraction facial. This face cream is very silky and light, perfect for summer. The best part is that it has 25% Vitamin C! I think using either this regularly, or Amazon bought Vitamin C serums on days I don’t wear it, have cleared up the small marks on my forehead. The combination of this day cream and La Creme Beaute Venom at night has left my skin more consistently clear than it’s ever been. (Plus, I’ve been more attentive to my skin in general lately.)

My esthetician at Elmes told me the key to maintaining clear skin (skincare wise) is Vitamin C and regular use of acids (like glycolic, salicylic, etc.) to exfoliate and dry down pimples. He advised that I avoid popping whitehead pimples because the white fluid I see is actually white blood cells and popping them can lead to acne scarring, or spread bacteria and create more pimples. Instead, he recommended that I use an acid daily and start out with a lower percentage. I’ve been researching products, and I’ll purchase Pixi Glow Tonic toner because it has 5% Glycolic Acid. In the future, I’d like to blog on a Pixi skincare haul. There are several Pixi products, specifically the Vitamin C line, that I have my eye on. ❤
