Even some of my closest friends call me a dreamer and an incurable optimist, but this is the kind of tag that I would gladly wear. One reason for why they have this opinion about me is that I never miss an opportunity to check out a do-it-yourself remedy.
While I’ve had my share of disappointments, overall I think that it’s well worth it to give these homemade products a chance, especially when you can hope to come up with a better thing than what money can buy.
In today’s world where everyone seems to be dashing around doing errands as well as attending appointments or meetings, it is a common thing that chronic stress is bound to happen. No wonder, topical anti-aging cream businesses are booming these days.
The assurance of looking youthful not having to succumb to treatments that plump and perhaps freeze your face into soul-numbing submission is irresistible to many both males and females (which includes me).
One beauty regimen that I could not live without is applying vitamin C serum, but it costs me an arm and a leg to buy this product. We have heard about the remarkable discoveries about the power of vitamin C, which is great for stimulating collagen production to even out the skin tone, help minimize fine lines and scars as well as protect the skin against UV damage.
Vitamin C serum is something that I keep at the top of the list of personal achievements because I started from scrap and successfully followed indications. The idea is to improve your skin firmness and to achieve the ideal color, even if you are usually struggling with pigmentation problems. Isn’t it amazing when nature just works? Well, not that fast.
Here’s the Covert in most Serum that we buy from Stores
Once vitamin C is added, it becomes inactive or unstable unless it is in its powder form. These forms of vitamin C are dormant and do not activate until assimilated by the skin. As a consequence, they do not break down and become unstable or inactive before you use it.
So our job is to apply vitamin C onto our skin in its powder form as soon as we can so you need to come up with a solution by doing your DIY anti-aging vitamin C serum.
② You need the vitamin C powder to dissolve completely before adding anything to it (you do not want to end up with a grainy serum).
③ After that, add 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin and it is ready to use.
④ Transfer the mixture to a dark bottle container or a lip balm container (I used the contact lens container here) and store it in a dark place.
One Useful Tip:
Vitamin C serum needs to be fresh (I would say, the one that would last for 3 days or a week at least) so it must be in its active form to reap the benefits.
① I just scoop it with my hands and apply it straight to my face, neck and décolleté.
② You can use a serum bottle with a dropper for easy use and finish it up within a week, or you can just put it in an empty lip balm container for daily use.
③ If you are satisfied with the result, use it twice a day.
Even if this remedy would be considerably more expensive, I would probably stick to it, but the truth is that the homemade Vitamin C serum is quite affordable to prepare.
