Home » Learning Center » The Best Vitamin C Serum for

If you’re not currently using a vitamin C product in your skincare regimen—what are you even doing? (We’re only partly joking—haha!) But seriously, if you’re not using a vitamin C serum, you should be. And there is no product we could recommend more than AlumierMD’s EverActive C&E + Peptide. This powerful antioxidant serum contains vitamin C crystals that are stored dry and stable in the lid, ready to be popped into the serum the moment before you open the bottle. Today we’re going to share with you exactly how this serum works, who it’s perfect for, and the steps for perfect use!

What is AlumierMD’s EverActive C&E + Peptide?

EverActive C&E + Peptide is a potent, medical-grade, topical antioxidant serum that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also revitalizing the skin. The antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E, neutralize free radicals while vitamin C and MATRIXYL® Synthe’6® strengthen and brighten skin.

Who is EverActive C&E + Peptide perfect for?

Everyone. If you care about your skin, this should be part of your daily routine. (Keep reading for why antioxidant serums—and this one in particular—are so great.)

To be a bit more specific, this product is also great for patients with damaged skin, pigmentation issues, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Why is vitamin C so powerful?

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, and it’s really important for good skin care. Vitamin C provides a lot of nutrients to the skin and acts as a barrier against sun damage by fighting UV-induced free-radical damage. So wearing a topical vitamin C serum like AlumierMD’s EverActive C&E + Peptide is really important to help boost your sun protection! (We like to think of it like a superhero protecting your skin!)

How to use AlumierMD’s EverActive C&E + Peptide

When you open the box, you’ll see three little bottles and a pipette. You may notice that the tops of the bottles are a little different from other similar products. That’s because vitamin C will oxidize when exposed to light and air, losing its potency very quickly. So AlumierMD did something really smart with their packaging! The vitamin C crystals are actually kept separate from the serum. The crystals are located in the top of the bottle and have to be added into the serum at the bottom in order for it to be fully activated.

This is great for two BIG reasons:

  1. If the crystals were pre-mixed, the vitamin C would already be slowly oxidizing before you even opened the bottle.
  2. Each bottle has enough product to last most people a month (when applied just to the face), so each month you will be able to activate a new bottle of fresh vitamin C serum to use!

Basically, you’ll activate one bottle and use it up, then activate the next bottle and use it up, before moving onto the third. This helps preserve the effects of the vitamin C.

Here are the steps to activating a bottle of EverActive C&E + Peptide:

Step 1: Remove the safety seal.
Step 2: Place the bottle on a hard, flat surface and push down on the top until you hear it click. (The click is the vitamin C crystals being released from the top.)
Step 3: Once pushed down, tap the bottle to fully release the crystals.
Step 4: Vigorously shake the bottle for a good 60 seconds, and then allow the serum to sit overnight while the crystals dissolve.
Step 5: The following morning, open the bottle and check the cap to make sure that all the crystals actually fell into the jar. If you see any crystals still in the cap, close the bottle and tap (or shake) it a few more times. Repeat until all the crystals have fallen into the jar.
Step 6: Once fully mixed, replace the white cape with the pipette (the black dropper) located in the box. Screw the dropper onto the bottle and you’re ready to go!

Once you’ve finished a bottle of AlumierMD’s EverActive C&E + Peptide, you save the dropper and repeat the activation process with the next bottle.
