Anti-Aging Vitamin C Mask
Many high-end spas offer a Vitamin C facial, which is absolutely wonderful, but comes with a costly price tag. So here is a fabulous Vitamin C facial mask that you can make on a budget and right in your kitchen!
Vitamin C happens to be a vitamin super power that fights pesky signs of aging. It does this by promoting regrowth of collagen, fading age and sun spots and is a powerful antioxidant, which attacks free radicals in the skin that are causing us to age prematurely.
Vitamin C Mask Recipe:
For the most beneficial results it is best to use L. Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C, this is Vitamin C in its purest form. However, you can still use the generic Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) form, but the results will not be as great.
- 1/2 TBSP L. Ascorbic Acid or Generic Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C.
- 1 tsp. (Choose one of the following: glycerin, olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera or distilled water).
1, Take up to 5 capsules of Vitamin C and blend them into a fine powder- with a high-speed blender.
2, Mix Vitamin C, with your choice of oil, water, or aloe vera.
3, Apply a very thin layer to a clean face and throat, but be careful around the eye area. If this mask gets into your eyes flush your eyes with cold water immediately.
Leave the mask on for 5 – 10 minutes and rinse with warm water. When it is time to remove the mask I personally like to gently massage the Vitamin C in my skin like an exfoliator and then rinse it off with warm water. If this feels uncomfortable or starts to burn, wash it off immediately.
For best anti-aging results use this mask once a week!
