 TPM Shows You: How to Make Your Own Vitamin C write-my.com #SDVJRBBXOAIU8988687575
 Facial Serum

     
     


Women have all the fun buying face creams and fancy concoctions in neat little jars.

As Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have made abundantly clear: face creams aren’t for us macho men.  Just wait, Justin Bieber, the clock is already ticking.

But men can have the same fun as women without having to read Marie Claire, Cosmo or Vogue to get the latest skin and makeup tips.

Think Vitamin C!s

Yes, that Vitamin C— a powerful (and expensive) anti-oxidant that helps promote elastin and collagen.  Being beautiful does not come cheap!  Name brand Vitamin C serums can range from $30 to $100 and even store brands are in the $20 - $30 range.

So… not to fear! Think green, economical— and effective.  We found a solution devised from the brain of a MIT scientist (not the Mel Brooks -  Young Frankenstein type).  We also ruled out the ever-popular remedies using oatmeal, snail secretions and Preparation H.

There is a little alchemy involved in this foolproof, homemade Vitamin C night serum, but it’s as simple as a five-minute microwave food recipe, except this is a recipe for easy beauty!

Ingredients:
5 tablespoons distilled water
1 teaspoon pure Vitamic C powder or crystals (preferably powder)
2 tablespoons of glycerin

Directions:
In a small, opaque container of not more than three ounces, combine the five teaspoons of distilled water and one teaspoon of Vitamin C powder or crystals.  Shake until the powder or crystals are completed dissolved.  Then add the Glycerin, and shake the solution again (always shake before each use). 

The opaque bottle is important because Vitamin C in powder or cream form oxidizes rapidly, which causes it to lose its efficacy (if it ages enough, it can even harm the skin).
  The opaque bottle slows the oxidation process.  Remix once every 1-2 weeks. 

Voila! – A Vitamin C night cream for less than $50 per year – a tenth of the cost of all those magazines that tell you how to halt the aging process and hide age wrinkles.
