Here are some of the benefits of using a Vitamin C serum in your regular skincare routine:

  • Evens out the skin tone and treats discolouration.
  • Improves the texture of the skin.
  • Brightens your complexion.
  • Increases collagen production.
  • Improves the youthfulness and elasticity of your skin.
  • Prevents premature skin ageing.
  • Makes the soft and supple.
  • Rehydrates and moisturizes the skin.
  • Prevents and heals effects of sunburn.
  • Controls free radical damage of the skin.

In addition to incorporating many sources of Vitamin C into your diet, you should also reap the benefits of using Vitamin C topically on your skin.

Keep in mind that a Vitamin C serum is best used at night and washed off in the morning, as it could react upon exposure to the sun and cause skin sensitivity.

Here are some quick and easy recipes for Vitamin C serum:

Recipe 1: Vitamin C Serum With Essential Oils:

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon Vitamin C powder
½ teaspoon Vitamin E oil
1 teaspoon purified or filtered water
3 teaspoons aloe vera gel
5 drops of any essential oil

Method of preparation:

  • Mix the Vitamin C water with the pure, filtered water.
  • Add the aloe vera gel to the mixture.
  • Add the Vitamin E oil and essential oil and blend all the ingredients together.
  • Transfer the serum into a dark coloured glass bottle, ideally with a dropper. This will prevent the serum from changing its consistency and oxidizing upon exposure to the sun.
