Well-known beauty expert Ambika Pillai shared her secret recipe for clear and flawless skin. She posted a video on Facebook and demonstrated how she makes Vitamin C serum at home.
Ambika says that this serum is a miracle and works wonder for your skin. It reduces the appearance of dark spots and pimple marks, leaving you with a glowing, clean skin.
1/2 tsp L-ascorbic acid powder (this is the purest form of Vitamin C)
1 tsp vegetable glycerin
2 tbsp distilled water
1 empty bottle
In a bowl, add distilled water and L-ascorbic acid powder. Mix both the ingredients till a point the mixture becomes clear. Now, vegetable glycerin. Mix it all well and transfer it into a dark empty bottle.
Ambika warns that this Vitamin C serum oxidises very fast, so you need to make it in small batches and use it within a week. If the serum turns yellow in colour, toss it off and make another one. This serum might tingle on the skin, which is fine. However, if the serum irritates your skin, wash it off immediatly.
Use it twice a day (morning and night) on clear face as a serum. Take a few drops of the serum, dab it all over the face and leave it on.
