Ladies I officially have a new beauty secret..
Y'all, I make my own L-Ascorbic acid toners and this ish is the TRUTH.
Don't go buying expensive-ass vitamin c serums that expire in like a month. Make your own FRESH toner or serum. Go buy some L-ascorbic acid powder from amazon, get an amber or cobalt-colored bottle, some glycerin, and give your skin a powerful boost of antioxidants. Vitamin C oxidizes quickly so just make a new small batch once every week or two. You'll know it's spoiled when it changes color.
Also I've been reading and abiding by this book called The Japanese Skincare method and it features methods of skincare that are highly effective in getting beautiful and lustrous skin.
Even the author, Chizu Saeki has beautiful skin and she is like 70-something. You know how old Asian ladies look good all their life but once they turn old, they suddenly fall apart? She is still holding it together.
Fantastic read. I'd bootleg an ebook version for y'all but unfortunately, this book is strictly paperback. But the book teaches effective methods of moisturizing and how to erase wrinkles and prevent signs of aging using simple stretches, pinching, rubs, and massages.
This woman taught me the magic that is cotton moisture masks!
