Vitamin C serves many purposes for the skin.  First, it helps produce collagen in the skin; collagen is what makes our skin look young and keeps our skin from forming wrinkles.  Collagen is what you have in excess from about 0-20 years of age.  Vitamin C also helps fade age and sun spots.  Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant which attacks free radicals in the skin that are causing us to age prematurely.

Vitamin C creates a brighter complexion and evens out skin tone, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits Of Vitamin C Face Masks For Anti-Aging:

  • Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines – Vitamin C has powerful anti-aging properties to combat wrinkles. Applying it topically has been used in dermatology to prevent and treat signs of aging and photoaging (from sun exposure).
  • Increase Collagen Production in Your Skin
  • Firm and Plump Skin
  • Reduce Effects of Sun Exposure and Sun Damage
  • Reduce Hyperpigmentation

 

When you buy vitamin C to make a face mask make sure you get the L-ascorbic acid form as it is the only one that has been proven effective for the treatment of wrinkles. L-ascorbic acid is stable in powdered form and by creating a vitamin C face mask yourself; you are using L-ascorbic acid when it is most potent.

Products and mixtures with vitamin C that have been sitting on a shelf in a store for several months are not nearly as effective.
Most store bought products and serums with vitamin C have been found to be unstable and oxidized as they are exposed to light and air.
You want the vitamin C to be most potent in order to get the best anti-aging effects.

How Often Should You Use This Face Mask? 

I use it twice a week.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp L-Ascorbic acid powder
  • 1 tsp honey “Raw Organic Honey”
  • 1 tsp. Glycerin.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Massage onto face ensuring all areas are covered. While you don’t want to get this in your eyes, it’s totally safe for underneath them.
  3. Leave mask on for 5 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Rinse off in a warm shower or with a wash cloth.
  5. Use as needed for smooth, supple skin.
