Vitamin C is an absolute all-rounder in skin care. It protects against free radicals, can counteract skin discoloration and fights visible signs of aging. In addition, vitamin C helps to retain moisture in your skin and therefore has a plumping effect. Do we need any more arguments to incorporate this sweetie into our beauty routine? - Actually, no. We still have one: a vitamin C serum with all its benefits, is easy to make yourself from just three ingredients. The magic words are:
- Vitamin C powder from the drugstore (Also known as L-ascorbic acid).
- Distilled water
- Glycerine from the drugstore
Thats it! Now all you need is a tinted container with an eyedropper to protect your miracle product from bacteria and sunlight, and you're ready to get mixing. For our mixing ratio, 1 part is one teaspoon, 2 parts is two teaspoons, and so on. Now fill your pipette bottle with:
- 1 packet part vitamin C powder
- 2 parts gycerin
- 8 parts distilled water
If you prefer it a bit thicker, you can use only 4 parts water instead of the 8 parts water and use an aloe vera gel for the remaining 4 parts. Homemade in this case means without preservatives.
