Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants for anti-aging and is necessary for the production of collagen in the skin. It is often used in conjunction with dermal rolling or micro needling to improve wrinkles, sun damage, scars, stretch marks and skin rejuvenation and should be used every time. Vitamin C serum is very unstable as Vitamin C oxidizes very quickly in the light. You can save 100's of dollars by creating your own fresh potent batch every time you use it. All the ingredients can be purchased inexpensively from your local pharmacy or health food store. When you use a skin roller such as the "Prickles roller" your absorption of the Vitamin C is increased by up to 80%.
Vitamin C serum Recipe (2-3 days amount) Ingredients: * 1/4 teaspoon of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin-C) powder or crystals with no additives. * Purchase at the health food store for about $10.00 for 125 gm. * 5 ml or approximately 1 U.S. teaspoon distilled water $2.00 for 1.5 liters. * 5 ml or approximately 1 U.S. teaspoon of vegetable glycerine (cost about $3.50.) Or if your skin is oily you can use rose water ((buy at the health food store cost $4.00) or KY jelly (buy at pharmacy) * Small bowl to mix the ingredients in. * Small spoon or Popsicle stick for stirring.
These ingredients are all natural and created to use orally. Instructions: 1. Make sure your bowl is clean by pouring boiling water over it. You can also sterilize it with some rubbing alcohol. 2. Make sure the bowl is dry. 3. Add the 1/4 teaspoon ascorbic acid to the bowl. 4. Add the 5 ml or 1 teaspoon distilled water. 5. Use the stirrer to stir until all the ascorbic acid is dissolved. 6. Add the 5 ml or 1 teaspoon glycerine (must be vegetable glycerine) or same amount of KY jelly or rose water if your skin is oily. This ingredient is only the base and not the active ingredient. (You want a natural PH for the base.) 7. Mix well with the stirrer until all is dissolved. 8. Now pat a small amount over the face or area treated. It’s good for the whole body. Make sure your face or area where you apply the serum is clean: It’s best to use alone so it does not interact with other products and change the PH. Don’t apply other products for at least 20 minutes. 9. Use up all the serum and throw out the leftovers after 3-4 days. Vitamin C oxidizes quickly and does not remain potent. Because it is so unstable it is very expensive to buy. You will save $100’s - $1000’s using this recipe. 10. If you find this serum burns your skin wash it off immediately. You can lower the potency by halving the ascorbic acid. You can raise the potency by doubling the ascorbic acid. Doubling creates a 20% potency and it is not recommended you use over this potency. Halving the amount of ascorbic acid makes a 5% serum.
Comments: This may tingle your skin a bit, if it’s too much just wash it off.... Apply this serum to the area you have rolled every time you roll it unless you are using the roller for hair regrowth in which case you would use your 5% minoxidil. If you need a roller go to http://stores.ebay.com.au/titaniumdermalrollers . These rollers are high quality rollers made with lexan plastic as used in racing helmets and safety gear and titanium needles. They are designed and produced by a Brisbane owned company. Treatment Plan precautions: Do not use the roller If:

You probably know this already if your react to things like earrings that are neither gold or silver and your ears get itchy or turn red when you wear them. 8) Have an active herpes breakout 9) Do not roll over fillers 10) Do not roll over Botox less than 2 weeks old.
