DIY Anti-Aging Vitamin C MOISTURIZER | New & Improved Recipe for Even Better Vitamin C Serum
YEARS AGO (I won’t tell you how many) I posted a video to YouTube of a DIY Anti-Aging Vitamin C Serum. To this day, it is my best performing video! If you’re worried about aging skin, Vitamin C NEEDS to be in your skincare routine. But, as I’ve discussed before, Vitamin C is very unstable, and should be made at home, instead of purchased at a drug store. So I created this recipe for a deeply nourishing moisturizer that has an amazing form of Vitamin C in it – I promise you’re going to LOOOOVE this recipe!
Here is the link to my original YouTube video!
2 tsp beeswax pastilles // If you want you cream to be less thick and balm-like in texture, just use 1 tsp beeswax pellets
2 tsp coco butter //
2 tbsp rosehip seed oil //
2 tbsp squalene oil* //
4 tbsp distilled water
1/2 tsp magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (Vitamin C) //
4 tsp vegetable emulsifying wax //
20 drops of geranium essential oil //
20 drops of frankincense essential oil //
* If you don’t have squalene, you can omit it – The recipe holds up without it!
For those of you who want to learn more about squalene, check out this blog post!
STORAGE: To preserve, store in fridge for up to 6 months. To increase the preservation of your product, you can add 1/4 tsp of Grapefruit Seeds Extract in the final stage of mixing.
TO USE: Always use a popsicle stick or spatula to scoop balm out of container, this will keep bacteria out. If you have very dry skin, you can use morning and night. If you skin is combination/oily, use as a night cream.
