My latest DIY beauty discovery his also now my favorite: vitamin C serum. So easy to make and use, so cheap it's ridiculous, and very effective. The serums at the store go for $20-100+ for a 30 day supply, and while my skin loves C serum, I just couldn't realistically pay that much. I found a website, on accident, a few weeks ago that told me how to make my own, and the stuff is like magic!
7 ml distilled water (I use rose water, because I like the smell)
3 ml glycerin (you can leave his out and increase the water by this amount if you prefer)
1 g. l-asorbic acid crystals (I got mine at Vitamin Shoppe for $9.99, and the tub will last me until I die, I imagine)
Mix only in plastic or glass (l-asorbic acid is reactive with metal), shaking/stirring until dissolved. Store in refrigerator in tinted bottle. Apply as with normal vitamin c serum!
I also love my sugar & salt scrubs, coconut oil for my skin (sounds like BB also loves this), and tea bags for my eyes when I've had a bad night's sleep!
