Advanced: Squeeze Me Vit C

This is an advanced routine, and should not be attempted without a well-tested basic routine.This routine builds on the Borderline-Too-Complex Exfoliation routine, and includes a Vitamin C step that helps increase skin collagen and reduces skin pigmentation from UV damage. Note that oxidized Vitamin C serums may stain your skin when used. Store in a cool dark area, preferably a fridge, to reduce rate of oxidation. If the serum turns an orange-yellow color, the potency has reduced and continued use may stain your skin.
