DIY Vitamin C Serum

DIY Vitamin C Serum: 

Of the many known benefits of vitamin C, the most important one is that applying it topically is actually great for the skin and health too. Vitamin C is known to promote the production of collagen which gives the skin its elasticity and counteracts wrinkles and fine lines. It is a powerful antioxidant that protects against UV damage. A DIY vitamin C serum is a must have in your beauty must-haves.

Here’s how you can make DIY vitamin C serum:

  • 1 teaspoon Vitamin C powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerin
  • 5-6 drops rose essential oil
  • Dark glass bottle with dropper

  • Add 1 teaspoon of Vitamin C powder to a small bowl and add 1 teaspoon of very hot water.
  • Stir until the powder is completely dissolved. It should be clear and not cloudy.
  • Add 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerin and stir.
  • Then add 5-6 drops rose essential oil and stir again. Rose has high amounts of vitamin C, which is a natural astringent and helps tighten pores and restore suppleness.
  • Transfer to a dark glass bottle, preferably with a dropper. All antioxidants, including vitamin C, will deteriorate in the presence of light and air.
  • Apply once a day, ideally in the morning to utilize some of the sun-protecting properties.

Here is another DIY Vitamin C Serum


  • 4 tsp Distilled Water
  • 1/4 tsp Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1/4 tsp Pure Aloe Vera
  • 1/2 tsp L’Ascorbic Acid Powder


  • Mix water, glycerin, and aloe vera gel in a small jar until combined
  • Add in the Vitamin C powder, cover the jar with a plastic lid and shake it until the Vitamin C is dissolved
  • Pour into a colored glass dropper bottle. It is important to use colored glass because Vitamin C oxidizes fast!
  • This serum has a short shelf life than most as the Vitamin C oxidizes in the water over time. So, make small batches.
  • Apply Vitamin C Serum every morning after waking up and every night before bed.
  • It might tingle when applied, which is normal. If it burns, then make a weaker dilution or use it every other day.

DIY Vitamin C serum is known for its very beneficial properties and getting one made at home adds to the goodness too.
