There are many Vitamin C serums that are available in DIY form or you can check out nufountain.com for their's. I have not tried any of this yet, but many people feel that vitamin C benefits their skin a lot. I would recommend C10-sensitive for people who are treating their skin heavily because I have heard this stuff will burn. I intend to up the dose to the ferulic acid because that is packed with even more antioxidants. Also, I watched a video on youtube from a dermatologist by the name of Dr.Neal and he says that antioxidants are not effective when used during the day, so use them at night.
It may seem ironic to force a ton of oxygen into the skin to kill bacteria and then take it away with antioxidants, but I would rather not have skin cancer or free radicals affecting other parts of my body. Benzoyl peroxide is literally only active for about an hour, so after that the bacteria should have been killed already, the idea is to keep the bacterial population at bay. I am curious to know how using antioxidants will benefit the health of my skin, I understand vitamin C helps exfoliate the skin, increase cellular turn over (heals scarring).
I just thought this was important information that I do not think many people consider or know about before using BP, I know I sure didn't.
Here is a website with some information on antioxidants and acne: http://www.acneteam....event-acne.html
