Serums can feel like an expensive luxury but they don’t have to be.
Used before applying moisturiser, they give a boost to your skin and this homemade version uses vitamin C for its antioxidant properties and its role in repairing collagen.
Great for sun-stressed skin, it’s quick and easy to prepare – just make it when you need it...
1 tsp vitamin C powder (available from health food shops or online. Just make sure you buy a natural one)
2 tsp filtered water
Stir the vitamin C powder into water until fully dissolved. Use before bed after washing your face and before applying moisturiser. Smooth onto your face in a circular upward motion and let it sink in.
