I’m really impressed with Vitamin C, also known as L. Ascorbic Acid. One spa I worked at at the very beginning of my career offered a Vitamin C facial. I remember how radiant my skin and my client’s skin looked afterwards. I never knew I could duplicate a $70 facial so cheaply and so simply! Let’s make a very simple DIY Vitamin C Mask to brighten skin as well as fade dark spots.
Some of you caught my post on Primally Inspired about a Vitamin C serum. Honestly, I enjoy my Anti Aging Serum more than the Vitamin C, simply because I like the smell and the texture better than the vitamin C serum.
The Vitamin C serum is great for people with lines and sun spots that they need to reduce quickly. Vitamin C is so beneficial that I couldn’t leave it out of my routine. So, weekly my skin enjoys a boost of Vitamin C via an invigorating mask! It’s simple and quick, and leaves skin radiant and glowing. Interested?
DIY Vitamin C mask
2. Apply a THIN LAYER to a clean face and throat.
**You must be very careful that the mask does not run into your eyes.**
Once the mask heats up from your skin it can start running. I end up having to not always apply it to my forehead. If your forehead really needs it, lean forward over the sink or a towel for the 10 minutes. I do the dishes! If the mask drips in the eyes it will BURN! Leave on for no more than 5-10 minutes. If your skin tingles that is natural. Too much tingling is not good. Remove it with cool water and lower the amount of L. Ascorbic acid in your mask. Be gentle when you remove your mask, the L. Ascorbic granules will give you a good exfoliation but they are rough so be gentle!
Pamper your skin-it’s the only skin you’ve got and nature offers some great tools to keep you feeling good inside and out!
