DIY Essential Oil Vitamin C Serum
Trendy ingredients come and go, but Vitamin C has stuck around and for good reason. Vitamin C touts many benefits towards skincare, like having the ability to brighten complexion, even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
However, as our skin matures and is exposed to pollutants, our skin begins to lose collagen and elastin balance. Enter, EG’s DIY Vitamin C Serum. This skin-loving powerhouse paired with essential oils can give expensive store-bought formulas a run for their money.
With antioxidant properties and a role in collagen synthesis, Vitamin C might be the ingredient your skincare routine is missing. Eating your daily dose of veggies and fruits is of course always recommended as well.
