Improve your complexion with facial serums
Apply 1 to 2 drops of facial serum to cover the face, neck and throat area unless otherwise indicated.

Vitamin C Facial Serum
Active Ingredient: 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin C also known as L-ascorbic acid. Do not use vitamin C tablets or calcium Ascorbate. 1 teaspoon glycerin
1 teaspoon water (preferably distilled)
Dissolve the l-ascorbic acid in 1 teaspoon of water in small glass sterilized container. Make sure the acid has dissolved before proceeding. Add 1 teaspoon glycerin and mix well. Apply once a day, preferably at night and increase to twice daily if your skin tolerates the serum. Store in dark container and store in cool, dry place. Light degrades the vitamin C. Watch for yellowing of your serum- it indicates oxidation. As it undergoes oxidation the ascorbic acid takes on a yellowish tinge, so it is important to check your creams or serums before you put them on your face, and if there is any yellow discoloration, DISCARD. Vitamin C has been shown to stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and protect against sun damage.
Not only are these essential and carrier oils can be used in effective skin care, they are great for aromatherapy, a safer alternative than aerosal sprays!
