Make It Yourself Monday: DIY Vitamin C Serum for Under $10!! Fight Off Signs Of Aging!

Monday, June 10, 2013


If you have shopped around for serums to brighten your skin and make it look healthier, then you know that those same serums come with a high price tag.

I was looking for a Vitamin C Serum a little while ago and I headed over to the Body shop to find that it would cost me $27!!

Now I know that for some that may not seem like a lot, but for this money saving mama it was!

So I decided to do a little research to see what most serums contained and found that it's pretty easy and a lot cheaper to make your own.

Here is what you will need:

:: Start with a dark colored glass bottle. (this will help it last longer) You can snag a 12 pack here or a 6 pack here.

:: %100 vegetable glycerine (this will make your skin super soft!)

:: Vitamin C powder

I also love doing this because I can make a ton of it! This will give you plenty for yourself and you can even make some as gifts!

Your friends will love you for this!! Smile


:: Mix 2 tsp of vegetable glycerine and 1 tsp of Vitamin C powder until completely dissolved.

:: Pour your serum into your glass bottle.

:: Apply 2-3 drops onto your skin at night after you have washed off your face.

:: Thoroughly Massage into your skin.

Be sure to keep this in a cool dry place for it to last as long as possible.

This stuff is amazing!! Your skin will look younger and softer! Vitamin C has an natural brightening effect that will get rid of dark spots and it will make your skin glow.
