Now that I’m into skin care I came across the importance of Vitamin C serum. Anything that says its good for your skin, reduces spots and it is all you need for that amazing skin, Go buy it today itself was my attitude but soon I got a reality check. The price check… Rs. 1,995 for a 30ml bottle.. noways I’m gonna spend so much. I can have so many chocolate instead and it will make me so happyyyy 😀😀
So on my way back home I enquired about vitamin C tablets and guess what it was less than Rs. 20 for 30 tablets. Yes, less than Rs. 20 then why not make one instead of spending Rs.1,995 .
How will vitamin C serum help?
Vitamin C is found mostly in all vegetables and fruits. So you don’t need to take extra efforts, just grab some veggies. But its not stored in the body so you need supply vitamin C time to time.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and protects the skin from UV radiation and effects of sun exposure. It also helps to reduce sunburns. Vit C is required in the production of collagen which firms and tones the skin. If used on a regular basis, it can reverse the wrinkles and ageing signs to a great extent. Helps to even out the skin tone, lightens dark spots, age spots and improves skin texture. Vit C retains moisture, increases the skin circulation and plumps up the skin too.
Now, lets start with how to make it.. You need only 3 ingredients Vitamin C tablets, glycerin and distilled water and a drop bottle.
DIY Vitamin C serum:
- Take 1 1/2 tablespoon of glycerin in a bowl.
- Mix it with 2 teaspoon of water (use 3-4 teaspoons of water if you have sensitive skin)
- Dissolve the Vitamin C powder (You can even buy a Vit C tablet and powder it) in the mixture. Just one tablet as Vitamin C is acidic and can burn your skin if used in high concentration.
- Mix the solution properly and pour it in a drop container or any dark coloured as Vitamin C oxides easily.
Tada you vitamin C serum is ready to use. After cleansing and toning, apply Vitamin C serum and gently massage it our skin.
Caution: Before using it on your face test it on your inner arms to see if you are allergic to it.
