I still remember my mom taking me to Macy’s to get my first facial cleansing products from Clinique when I was 13. It was a 3-step regime involving cleaning, toning and moisturizing. I loved how the process made me feel so grown up. To this day, I’m so grateful to my mom for starting me off right with taking care of my skin.
The trouble is as I’ve aged, skin care regimes have become more expensive. I don’t wear much makeup and make sure to clean, tone and moisturize my skin everyday. I found this tutorial for a Vitamin C Serum made from the following ingredients: Vitamin C (L Ascorbic Acid), Almond Oil and Olive Oil.
According to the tutorial, these ingredients are supposed to:
- Vitamin C (L Ascorbic Acid)
improves the appearance of skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles
protects and lessens the effects of sunburns
protects the skin from free-radical attack
prevents skin cell damage due to ultraviolet radiation
- Almond Oil
protects the skin from sun damage
relieves inflammation and irritation
rejuvenates and softens skin
- Olive Oil:
rich in vitamin E
plumps and moisturizes skin
fights free radicals
Maybe I need something for anti-aging. You know I’m 91 in people years.
I too remember my mom taking me to the Clinique counter! I loved the giant bar of cleansing soap in the green slide out case. So grown up! 😉 I will have to give this a try. I have heard good things about Vitamin C serum, but I have been unwilling to pay the hefty price tag to give them a try. Thanks for sharing!
