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.
