Vitamin C Serum Recipes

Recipe 1: Vitamin C Serum with Distilled Water Only

Vitamin C oxidizes easily with exposure to sunlight, using amber glass helps to reduce the effect.

This will store for up to 2 weeks or longer in the fridge.

Step 1: Pour Vitamin C Powder & Distilled Water into Amber Glass Bottle to dissolve.

Step 2: Once dissolved, you are done!

Step 3: Apply to face / skin at night after cleansing and toning and enjoy!

 

Recipe 2: Vitamin C Serum with Distilled Water and Vegetable Glycerin

Vitamin C oxidizes easily with exposure to sunlight, using amber glass helps to reduce the effect.

Vegetable glycerine is extra moisturizing and helps soften our skin. It will also help to extend the serum’s life to last around a month or longer.

Step 1: Pour Vitamin C Powder & Distilled Water into Amber Glass Bottle to dissolve.

Step 2: Once dissolved, pour vegetable glycerin into Amber Glass Bottle and you are done!

Step 3: Apply to face / skin at night after cleansing and toning and enjoy!

 

Simple precautions for use:

  • Measure carefully and do not add extra Vitamin C as it is acidic and can burn the skin if the concentration is too high.
  • If you have extra sensitive skin, dilute with even more water.
  • This is best paired with a skin care routine like Oil Cleansing.
  • For dry or aging skin, this serum is a good solution. It can be used for acne prone skin too.
  • If you are dealing with a lot of wrinkles or very dry skin, extra vitamin C can be added, but work up slowly and test on the inner arm before applying to the face.

 

What are the Benefits of Vitamin C for Skin?

Vitamin C has been reported to:

  • Increase collagen production in the skin and may help get rid of wrinkles [1]
  • Help skin repair itself, brighten and tighten the skin [2]
