Vitamin C Serum

4 May

After hearing rave reviews about Vitamin C serums I decided to try my hand at making my own, as my preferred brand of organic vitamin C serum was over $60 for a teeny tiny dropper bottle!!

serum

Eeeek that is a big outlay for a little experiment!!

Vitamin C is one of the latest buzz ingredients in skin care, it is purported to work wonders, brightening your complexion & reversing the signs of aging – who doesn’t want that?

Youthful, bright, glowing skin, sign me up!

This is super easy to make, you only need a few ingredients & can make your own serum for only a few dollars!!

But best of all This serum is like a little ray of sunshine for your skin.

I apply it nightly before bed (at the same time as my eye lash serum) & let it do its magic over night.

Vitamin C Serum a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 1 t filtered water
  • 1 t organic vegetable glycerine
  • 1 t organic, non gmo vitamin c powder

This will keep well in a dark cupboard for up to a month. Its normal to feel some tingling when you first use it – so don’t panic. Vitamin C is magic, but don’t be tempted to up the vitamin C level, to get more magic! as it is an acidic compound & can irritate sensitive skins & you don’t want that. If your serum irritates your skin just water down further with water or glycerine.

This serum will keep in a dark place for up to a month – but using it nightly you will have used it up well before then.

Enjoy
