Every day we are surrounded by free radicals that damage our skin, uv rays, pollution, and many more. As we get older our skin loses its elasticity our collagen production lowers and we get pigmentation!
We spend lots of money on creams, peels and Botox not knowing the amazing results from simply remedies.
We have heard about vitamin C and how imperative it is for our health to sustain a health balance in our diet.
What we don’t hear is the amazing effects it has applying in topically on our skin.
Vitamin C when applied to our skin fights of free radicals protecting our skin cells and strengthening our skins barrier.
Scientific trials have been proven that when applied topically it is 20 times more affective in collagen production and getting rid of age spots.
It reverses the all the damage done to our skin over the years reducing wrinkles by dramatically increasing our collagen production.
Now we all have the secret to anti-aging!
The problem is that there are so many products out there with this magical ingredient in it but do they all work?
The answer is no a lot of these creams are ineffective and have a very low percentage of Vitamin C in them.
On the other hand there are a lot that do work but are very expensive.
Lucky for everyone reading I will let you in on the secret recipe that you can make in your own home. Made fresh with the highest percentage of Vitamin C with maximum absorption for your skin.
Vitamin C serum recipe
The steps to making this serum are very simple there are just a few things to keep in mind while making this at home.
Measure accurately using pure Vitamin C is very concentrated and over using it can burn your skin as it is acidic.
If you have sensitive skin be sure to start off with less vitamin c and working up from there. This serum suits all skin types including acne and dry skin. This can be worked into your skin care routine before you moisturize.
There are 2 ways to making this serum the second one is just an addition of an extra ingredient I will provide both for you, personally I like method one as it is more concentrated and easy to make. Remember to store in a cool place in a dark opaque airtight glass container. Alternatively a small batch fresh every day.
I have tried a few Vitamin C powders and it is hard to find a good one that dissolves I use Skinstitut vitamin C powder available on this on this website: http://modellookbeautyandhair.com.au/shop/skinstitut-vitamin-c/
Half and teaspoon of pure vitamin C powder
1 tablespoon of distilled water
Letting the vitamin C powder dissolve in the distilled water storing for 2 weeks and there you have your 100% vitamin C serum!
Using same amount of vitamin C powder letting in dissolve it 1 teaspoon of distilled water and adding 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin this method will last one month.
