This homemade vitamin c serum is super easy to make, effective and inexpensive. Learning how to make a homemade vitamin c serum is a lot easier than most people realize. I prefer to make a liposomal vitamin c serum that is mixed with aloe for a simple vitamin c serum that can be made in minutes. Seriously it is that easy!
How is vitamin c good for wrinkles?
A vitamin C serum is great for preventing wrinkles which is why vitamin c is one of the top active ingredients used in skincare. Utilizing active ingredients such as vitamin c is necessary to make visible changes in the skin as vitamin c is required for collagen production and thus preventing wrinkles.
Wrinkles form as the skin ages due to loss of collagen and hydration in the skin. Collagen helps to provide structure for the skin but when collagen starts to break down wrinkles will start to form. Vitamin c is a nutrient that is needed by the body to produce collage and elastin which is why vitamin c is good for wrinkles and firming the skin.
Vitamin c serum benefits for skin
Vitamin c is also good for antiaging as vitamin c is an antioxidant which helps to counter acts the damage done by free radicals. The skin is exposed to the outer world, oxygen and UV rays that all contribute to free radical damage in the skin. vitamin c is a great antioxidant to help protect the skin and repair skin damage caused by all these external factors causing skin damage.
This liposomal vitamin c serum is made using Seeking Health’s Optimal Vitamin C which is a vitamin c supplement in a liposomal delivery system of sunflower lecithin which contains phosphatidylcholine to provide better absorption of vitamin c both internally and externally.
Phosphatidylcholine is also required to make up cell membranes of cells including skin cells thus providing optimal absorption of vitamin c and additional building blocks to make up new healthy cells.
When making a homemade vitamin c serum that is effective you want vitamin c which is the active ingredient to be in a concentration of at least 10 percent in order to make visible changes in the skin with the higher vitamin c concentration being at 20 percent. I like to start with a 10 percent vitamin c concentration initially to see how the skin responds and slowly increase the concentration in future serums if desired.
