          dont take right before you sleep, coz some people complains about difficulty to get to sleep if they take vit c at night.

          take around 1 hour after dinner. that will be good.

          vit e wise, i cant think of much products, except the body shop ones. but i find vit e generally not as useful. i prefer taking enough vit c to help the entire body. when i take vit c regularly, i find that the skin condition is really better....

              Qian, your health is equally important, if not, more important than your skin!!! It is still good to take Vit C for health purposes. SO don't forget to take them in the morning too! But I remember some months back when some reseachers found out that taking too much Vit C pills would cause the development of stones later on. So, maybe we can try taking in the morning on some days and in the night on others.

                the recommended dosage is 1000mg a day. IIRC, max is 2000mg. i usually keep to the max of 1000mg

                you can actually alternate between taking in the day time or the night time.

                  Heard good reviews on the body shop's vit. C lotion. Cost under $30.

                  For vitamin e, what i used to do is to buy capules of it at the pharmacy, those kind to be eaten, I got the Blackmores brand. Break it and spread over my face. Didn't break me out but I didn't see any fading of scars either. Learn about this method in a magazine. Vit E helps to fade scars but it didn't work on me.
                  Vit C, I use it more to prevent wrinkles.

                    but isn't vitamin C a water-soluble vitamin. meaning that excess will just b e discharged, therefore not causing you any harm?

                        some info on vitamin c: Link

                        actually, the max level of vitamin c is rather controversial now, with different doctors leaning towards different dosages.

                        Anyway, any vitamins should not be taken in excess.

                          i personally cant take vitamin c in terms of capsules form
                          i will have heat rushes through my body and i feel uncomfortable

                          i rely more on fruits and vegs and i think it helps me

                            i dont like capsules form or the effervesent forms too....

                            i like the haba's one better... its in powder form. I usually mix it together with ribena. but i dont take daily. usually take when i dont eat enough fruits.

                              what exactly does vitamin c & vitamin e do for your skin? which one helps to reduce fine lines & prevent early aging?

                                Vit C reduces fine lines and delays ageing. Vit E is for fading of scars.
