Making homemade vitamin C serum for your face is as simple as throwing together your morning smoothie. All it takes is a quick trip to the local health foods store or pharmacy and a few minutes of preparation. Fresh and effective, you can reap the same benefits of branded vitamin C serums at a tenth of the cost. According to the Indian Dermatology Online Journal, the topical benefits of vitamin C are plentiful. Vitamin C is safe and naturally prevents photoaging, treats hyperpigmentation, promotes tissue healing, stimulates collagen production and wards off free radicals.
