Discover how to make your own Vitamin C Serum with Sophie Uliano.
Here is an updated version of Sophie Uliano’s Vitamin C Serum. In her last series of videos and in her third book “Do It Gorgeously,” she gave you a recipe for Vitamin C Serum. Now, Vitamin C, is a very important anti-aging ingredient. It’s one of the few ingredients that has been proven to build elastin, build collagen, and diminish sun spots. It’s just essential for your anti-aging regime. However, Vitamin C is very unstable, so that means it oxidizes very quickly. It turns bad when something oxidizes, like Vitamin C; also the same thing, by the way, is L Ascorbic Acid. It loses its efficacy.
So her intention in making the serum was that we got the Vitamin C powder, the crystals, as quickly onto your face as we possibly could so that they would be at their most potent. That being said, there were a few issues with this last recipe. Some of you liked it, some of you said that it was a little bit gritty because the crystals didn’t completely dissolve and others of you found it a little bit sticky.
So Sophie have revised and updated it. And you’re going to change out two of the ingredients; there’s only actually two ingredients anyway.
She spent quite a lot of time experimenting and fiddling with this. This, I think you’ll all be absolutely thrilled with. So when she wrote the recipe before, it was very hard for her to find completely water soluble Vitamin C crystals. She just couldn’t. In the only place she could find them, they were super, super expensive. She didn’t want to include that in the recipe because it was prohibited for those of us who want to save money by making our own skin care. She just suggested using Vitamin C powders that you will find in the health food store or Trader Joe’s or Amazon. However, those ones, they’re eventually water soluble but it takes a while and it still feels a bit gritty, so not ideal.
The gorgeous lady finally found one which is brilliant and it’s completely soluble. She promise you it will immediately dissolve. It’s bought from a company called makingcosmetics.com, very easy.
You get a small pot of the L Ascorbic Acid. They come in all sorts of different sizes. She promise you will not need another jar again. This she had for months and months because you’re using quarter of a teaspoon at a time and it’s very inexpensive. I think this was around seven bucks. So that’s what you need from makingcosmetics.com.
Now, the other thing that you’re going to need is Aloe Vera Gel. Not juice, but gel. In her recipe before, she used vegetable glycerin which is also nice in a serum but can lead to a tiny bit of stickiness; this does not lead to stickiness at all. So three simple ingredients. This is what they are.
You’ve got your L Ascorbic Acid crystals (Vitamin C) from makingcosmetics.com, quarter of a teaspoon. You’re going to add quarter of a teaspoon to four teaspoons of distilled water. Mix them around, as she have said before it will dissolve completely. Then you’re going to add two teaspoons of Aloe Vera gel. It can come up a tiny bit lumpy, you might need to use a little whisk to whisk it up so you get rid of all the lumps. Then use a funnel to pour it into a little bottle. You can actually keep it in anything, to be honest, but it is useful if you’ve got an old dropper bottle. This one is from something else from years ago and she sterilized it in her dishwasher. And she like using the dropper bottle because then when she’s ready to use it, she just shake it up and I take up a dropper-full of the serum, put it in the palm of her hands. Rub her hands together, and then she rub it all over her face, her neck, her chest and the backs of her hands. And it’s that simple.
Now, she’s recommending that you only make that amount which is about six teaspoons worth because you want to use it up quickly and just keep making it. So make it every two or three days because the fresher, obviously the better. But in her mind, it’s so easy to make. If you have these ingredients, just two ingredients, and the water just sitting in your kitchen. You can mix it up while you’re, you know, waiting for your kettle to boil in the morning. Mix up your batch for the next two or three days and you’re done.
So that is the updated recipe. She promise that you will love it. If you do not want to make your own Vitamin C serum, make sure that you get one that uses Vitamin C, a form of that is very stable. And not all of them are. There’s one that she really like called “Mad Hippie” and they use a completely stable form of Vitamin C. She like it so much that she added it to her open sky collection. So you can actually buy it there. But if you want to save oodles of money the way like this, make your own. So enjoy it and let me know what you think.
