Vitamin C active form, L-ascorbic acid, is the only antioxidant that stimulates the synthesis of collagen to help minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Also, this serum can be use to lighten hyperpigmentation naturally.

Making your own will save money because many products on the market are extremely expensive because vitamin C is unstable and little amount of ascorbic acid. Stay away from products that in clear containers that destroy the effectiveness and the serum/lotion/cream that are tinted because you cannot tell if your skin care product was oxidized. However, vitamin C does not work on everyone but newer vitamin C derivatives still have anti-aging benefits. Always perform a batch test because vitamin C can be irritating to the skin.

***Apply the serum over the face and gently pat around the eyes but makes sure to do a patch test on the wrist to see you the serum stings/irritating. If so then use less vitamin C powder to mix weekly.

Recipe to make a weekly vitamin C serum that is more stable and less expensive:
-~$5 L-Ascorbic Acid Powder 1/4 tsp (Store in a cool and dry place. Do not store this in the bathroom cabinet because the moisture from taking showers can ruin the powder.) or
-~$5 Glycerin 1 tsp but you can adjust this amount if it’s too sticky for your skin or can use personal lubricant (KY Jelly) or Monistat Chafing Relief Gel
-*** This is optional because some people can break-out. I have acne prone skin and the vitamin E helps increase sunscreen efficacy with no break-outs. ~$6 Vitamin E Oil 2-5 drops or pierce a capsule to squeeze the vitamin E oil out
-~$3 Distilled Water 1 tsp at any drugstore like Rite Aid or CVS
– Measuring spoon
– Stirring spoon
– Cup
– Sealable non-clear container or amber/blue glass bottle. You can ask your local pharmacy for a empty medicine bottle they use to dispense liquid medicine. I’m sure they will provide it for free.

By the way, hair bow is from and I’m wearing Acuvue 2 colour in hazel prescription contact lens!
