Wrinkle reducing serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C and D
Hyaluronic acid is something our bodies make naturally, but the amounts drastically diminish as we age. It holds 100x it’s weight in water, so hydrates our skin so much so as to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. The addition of Vitamin C only goes to increase the effectiveness although does decrease the shelf life of your serum.
- 2 tablespoons distilled water
- 1 teaspoon Vitamin C powder (optional, spoils faster)
- 1/4 teaspoon hyaluronic acid powder
- 1/4 teaspoon vegetable glycerine
Put the glycerine in a small dark airtight container and mix with a little distilled, add the Hyaluronic acid powder, mix and shake well. Add the rest of the distilled water and shake vigorously. Refrigerate for about 4 hours (during which time you can shake the mixture a few more times) you will see it has formed a gel. Kept in the refrigerator this will not last much longer than a week. If it goes yellow throw it away. To avoid it going off, omit the Vitamin C powder. In this case your serum should last about a month.
