One of the most powerful anti-aging vitamins is Vitamin C, which is known to boost collagen production, repair existing sun damage and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is unstable and oxidizes quickly, leading to a short shelf life. Because most Vitamin C serums are somewhat expensive and oxidize before consumers can use them completely, it is frugal to make your own anti-aging serum.
Mix 1/4 teaspoon of the Vitamin C with 1 teaspoon of distilled water in a cup or small glass bowl.
Stir the mixture until the Vitamin C dissolves. If necessary, place the cup or bowl in a larger bowl of warm water to dissolve any remaining granules.
Add 1 teaspoon of the base -- glycerin, lubricant or lotion -- and mix.
