How To Make Vitamin C Serum At Home?

The miraculous abilities of vitamin C are renowned. You name it, and vitamin C will work its magic on it, whether it is to boost immunity, prevent cancer, or make skin look flawless.

Antioxidants found in vitamin C make your skin seem young and beautiful. For healthy skin, it aids in removing free radicals and improves collagen synthesis and tissue healing.

Vitamin C is present in the dermis and epidermis of the skin, where these nutrients deposit from the bloodstream.

Vitamin availability reduces due to ageing, pollution, or UV exposure, especially in the epidermis. Vitamin C's topical application is far more effective for the skin than when taken orally.

In this blog post, we'll first learn the benefits of Vitamin C for our skin and Vitamin C serum and then prepare Vitamin C serum with simple kitchen ingredients.

So, let's learn and then do what all that needs to be done.

What Are The Benefits Of Vitamin C For Our Skin?

Vitamin C is safe. Most people don't often experience side effects after using topical vitamin C for a long time.

1]. Brightens The Skin

  • Pigmentation lightens with vitamin C and resurfaces the skin to lessen dullness.

  • Skin looks younger as a result of this. Vitamin C can aid in lightening hyperpigmentation and dark spots by preventing the development of melanin.

  • It might also help in making your skin look more radiant and bright.

2]. It Helps To Balance Out Skin Tone And Lessen Redness

  • An excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, vitamin C works to lessen the appearance of inflammation-related symptoms like rash, redness, and irritation.

  • Topical vitamin C reduces inflammation in several skin diseases, including psoriasis and acne.

3]. Hydrates The Skin

  • Vitamin C provides hydration to the skin, which also helps to reduce skin dryness. Skin treated with vitamin C doesn't get dry or greasy since it holds onto water.

4]. Promotes Collagen Production

  • A protein that occurs naturally, collagen becomes less abundant over time. Fine lines and wrinkles can result from low collagen levels.

  • Through collagen synthesis, vitamin C is widely known for increasing collagen production. In actuality, vitamin C is essential for collagen formation.

5]. Stops Skin Sagging

  • Elasticity and hardness of the skin are related to collagen synthesis. Your skin may start to sag as your collagen levels begin to decline.

  • Applying a vitamin C serum might increase the formation of collagen, which would tighten the skin all around.

  • It indicates that it can aid in minimizing the appearance of drooping skin, giving your skin a tighter, toned appearance.

6]. Protects From Sun Damage

  • Low vitamin C levels in the skin are due to prolonged exposure to oxidative stress by contaminants or ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

  • Free radicals are chemical substances that harm the skin from the sun. The antioxidant content of vitamin C is high.

  • By providing these free radicals an electron and neutralizing them, antioxidants defend healthy skin cells.

7]. Reduces Hyperpigmentation

  • Vitamin C can lighten hyperpigmentation because it prevents the development of melanin.

  • When melanin production increases in particular areas of the skin, hyperpigmentation, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma, results.

  • Additionally, it may take place in regions that have recovered from acne.

  • By reducing the activity of the tyrosinase enzyme, vitamin C prevents the production of melanin.

  • For lightening hyperpigmented skin patches, it frequently appears in dermatology.

What Are The Benefits of Vitamin C Serum?

Anyone experiencing these skin problems might want to incorporate a vitamin C serum into their skin-care routine.

Even if these problems haven't yet emerged, it is a good idea to do so now. The best time to address the telltale indications of ageing is before their appearance.

  • Sunburn

  • Photoaging

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Wrinkles

  • Sagging

  • Dryness

  • Uneven skin tone

These are just a few of the problems that vitamin C may assist in preventing the skin from.

Vitamin C serum is available in the market at various prices. Usually, the best ones are heavy on the pocket. So, let's prepare one naturally at home at a much lower price and with no side effects.

How To Prepare Vitamin C Serum At Home?

Here is everything you have to do to prepare a vitamin C serum at home:


1]. Rosewater (gulab Jal):

  • Rose water has a reputation for assisting in minimizing the look of skin redness.

  • It can help you combat redness and blotchy patches of skin thanks to its antimicrobial characteristics.

  • Treatment of greasy, acne-prone skin with rose water is also quite successful.

2]. Orange peel powder:

  • The high vitamin C and antioxidant concentration of this component makes it a favourite in skin care products.

  • You can prepare orange peel powder at home. Leave some orange peels in the sun and let them dry in the sun.

  • Once they are completely dried, make them into a powder with the help of a mixer grinder.

3]. Glycerine:

  • As a humectant or a chemical that helps the skin retain moisture, glycerin is excellent for the skin.

  • It can improve skin moisture, alleviate dryness, and revitalize the epidermis.

4]. Vitamin E oil:

  • Promotes wound healing, reduces the visibility of scars, and prevents wrinkles.

  • A class of fat-soluble vitamins known as vitamin E has antioxidant properties.


STEP 1: Take one cup of rose water.

STEP 2: Add one big tablespoon of orange peel powder to the cup of rose water and then leave it for 15-30 min for infusion.

STEP 3: Once the infusion is complete, strain the liquid. Do not throw away the residue of orange peel powder. You can use it as a facial or body scrub.


  • For oily skin, add half a tablespoon of glycerine to the mix.

  • For dry skin, take one tablespoon of glycerine and add about half a cup of the rosewater and orange peel powder concoction to it.

STEP 5: Next, add four capsules of vitamin E oil.

STEP 6: Mix all the ingredients well and store it in a dark bottle. (Vitamin C oxidizes quickly. That is why a dark bottle is the way to go.)

Your magical and cost-effective vitamin C serum is ready for use.


Apply this serum every time after washing your face and make it an integral part of your skincare routine.

There are so many benefits of Vitamin C serum, be it improving your skin or streamlining your skin care regimen. Vitamin C serum provides benefits over a long period.


The consistency of this serum is liquid, but it will thicken over time. So, store it in a refrigerator.

But if you don't have a refrigerator, you can store it in the open for about one week.
