    DIY Vit. C: just water and LAA. The PH?

    Does anyone have a recipe to share that consists of just water and vitamin c.
    What percentage are you making?
    How much distilled water and LAA?
    Have you tested the PH?

    Thanks so much!

    Vit C is an antioxidant. It attacks free radicals and does great damage management!!

    Gymrat thanks for your response. Like most guys I have no clue about skin care. Seems like alot of people are using Retin A and Vitamin C. I dont want to buy skin care products that when used with other products will do more damage than good. What would be a good basic skin care routine? Thanks.

    Gymrat, In 2011 I became ill and had to have brain surgery and I think that caused my skin to age. Now I have slight puffiness and a little discoloration under my eyes, I also have some laugh lines. I would also like to have smoother skin. Thanks

    Awwh I am sorry, I hope your surgery was a success and you are feeling better.

    As for your skin I would use a basic cleanser, nothing harsh. After cleansing you can use a Vit C serum, then a moisturizer. Your moisturizer can consist of a simple facial oil. Pure jojoba oil works great as a moisturizer. And sunscreen is a must!! As for laugh lines it could be that your are not moisturizing enough. Once you get some moisture in your skin you may feel and look better. Give it a few weeks. As for puffiness, medication could be the cause of this, be sure you are drinking plenty of water.
