Vitamin C - Ascorbic Acid 100%
Pure vitamin C powder, you only need a pinch of it a day.
Practical applications for ascorbic acid
Dissolve ascorbic acid in water and apply this pure vitamin C solution to your skin. Your skin absorbs it, refreshes and regenerates.
Vitamin C absorbed transdermal (through the skin) is an important elixir for the skin: to form collagen the skin needs vitamin C to strengthen its structure.
Skin care can be so inexpensive!
Scientific investigations confirm:
Applied topically (on skin surface) antioxidants protect the skin from harmful free radicals. Therefore, creams and fluids with vitamin C are so on the rise.
But why buy expensive creams and fluids if you can easily make the product yourself?
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant because it has a variety of other cutaneous (skin-related) benefits, including photoprotection of UVA & B, neocollagenesis, inhibition of melanogenesis and amelioration of a variety of inflammatory skin conditions.
You have probably already read about the positive effect of lemons and limes on the skin and certainly already applied it yourself, for example, after cutting dark colored fruit, you cleared the skin on your hands with lemon juice.
In the same way you can also use a water solution of ascorbic acid to get dark elbows or knees lighter.
Or to lighten freckles:
Mix the ascorbic-water solution with yoghurt to a paste, apply once a day, leave it for 5-15 Minutes, and rinse off with cold water. Until the desired result is there.
The main active ingredient in lemons is vitamin C, which is ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid, i.e. vitamin C, controls the pH value of the body, reduces unpleasant body odor and strengthens the immune system. It protects against infections, regulates blood pressure and has an uplifting effect on hair, skin and nails.
As the vitamin C in the skin strengthens the production of collagen, the elasticity of the skin is improved and provides for a young look.
The astringent (constricting) properties of vitamin C help tighten the skin and prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
Application for skin care
Dissolve ascorbic acid in a small amount of water until completely dissolved, add a little honey and gently rub the face, neck, hands and legs with a cosmetic sponge. Leave for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Repeat 2 to 3 times a week.
Ascorbic acid as an astringent can also help treat acne and regenerate healthy skin tissue. Thus there will be fewer acne scars and blemishes afterwards.
In addition the antibacterial nature of vitamin C kills the bacteria that cause acne.
Application against acne:
Dissolve ascorbic acid in a schnapps glass of water until completely dissolved, apply the solution to a cosmetic sponge and rub in the affected area. Allow to soak in for 5 minutes and rinse the skin with cold water. Repeat twice daily until the acne has disappeared.
With this solution, you can also treat dandruff and reduce the itching on the scalp. The solution balances the pH of the scalp and reduces excess fat excretion. Because the solution also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, scalp infections are avoided.
Application against dandruff:
After washing your hair rub your hair with the solution described above and let the solution soak in for 5 minutes. Then rinse with clear warm water. Repeat 2 to 3 times a week.
Chapped lips? Ascorbin-water solution helps.
Application: Again, dissolve ascorbic acid fresh in water (never take an old solution from the previous day, which does not work anymore) and gently rub the lips with it. Then rinse with warm water, dab dry and cream the lips with coconut oil. Repeat daily, preferably at bedtime.
Due to the astringent properties of vitamin C, the skin may be dry after use. Therefore, apply a little coconut oil or moisturizer especially on the face after use.
! If the skin burns or stings during use, wash immediately and take a stronger dilution with water.
! Never bring ascorbic acid into contact with eyes or eyelids.
Attention! Never inhale ascorbic acid powder dust - it is an acid.
Treatment with vitamin C makes skin and hair more sensitive to sunlight.
Wait one day to return to full sunlight.
! Each time make a fresh solution of ascorbic acid and always dissolve completely.

! The applied vitamin C must have a pH of less than 3.5 in order to be able to penetrate the skin optimally.
! This means: completely dissolve ascorbic acid in the water
! Always prepare the ascorbic acid solution fresh, because after 2-3 days it decomposes into dehydro-ascorbic acid and it does not cause anything.
! Those who are prone to cuparose should be more careful with the solution, as it greatly stimulates the blood circulation of the skin.
Good to know:
Our skin stores vitamin C for up to 3 days, so it only needs to be applied 2-3 times a week.
Due to its acidic pH value, vitamin C also penetrates deep layers of the skin and remains active there for up to 3 days.
Put a small amount of warm water in a shot glass and dissolve the ascorbic acid powder completely.
Make this fresh every day as Vitamin C has a short shelf life.
