Benefits of Ascorbic acid:
(A water soluble form of vitamin C) It promotes wound healing and protects cellular DNA against damage caused by oxidation. It also stimulates collagen synthesis, has powerful antioxidant properties, and helps in the production of collagen and maintenance of healthy skin.

Vitamin C, a naturally occurring antioxidant is an important constituent of our skin. It plays a pivotal role in the prevention of dry skin and wrinkles, collagen synthesis and skin regeneration. Ascorbate is found in all layers of the skin, but is more concentrated in the epidermis than the dermis. However, it is readily depleted by about two thirds in cutaneous tissue stores with exposure to UV light.

Vitamin C has been shown to be effective in increasing collagen deposits and also enhancing collagen lattice contractions, implying that exogenous vitamin C application contributes to strengthening the collagen framework and maintaining a healthy dermis. Topical application of Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Caused by mechanisms supporting collagen production, this leads to improving the appearance of the skin. It has further been proven to reduce the severity of sunburns and age spots.

Cutaneous levels of Vitamin C cannot be achieved well by ingestion, hence topical application is essential for preventing oxidative damage resulting from pollution, smoke and sunlight. Its use has been shown to increase generation of stratum corneum barrier lipids and stabilize lipid profiles, in particular glucosphingolipids and ceramides.

    Melon FacialMash one-half cup of fresh melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, etc) in a bowl and apply to clean, dry skin. Let sit for 10 metinus. Rinse with cool water and finish with your favorite moisturizer. Melon is full of natural alpha hydroxy acids and vitamins, which leave skin glowing and radiant! For best results, use the melon treatment once weekly.Carrot Oil FacialCarrots are chock full of beta-carotene and provide the skin with much needed vitamin A. Instead of spending a fortune on treatments from a dermatologist, consider this nourishing mask:1. Blend two or three carrots to a fine pulp or use a small bottle of Gerber carrots and mix with a teaspoon of almond or olive oil.2. Apply mixture to clean, dry skin. Massage carrots in to skin gently, using circular motions.3. Let sit for five or ten metinus. Rinse with cold water.Be sure to include carrots in your diet as well. This way you’ll be sure to get their benefits from the inside out. After all, what is on the inside is perhaps more important.Yeast MaskBrewers yeast mixed with some water forms a paste makes a good mask for oily/normal skin.Milk Honey Mask1 Tbls milk2 Tbls honeyMix till blended. It may take awhile. Spread over the whole face. Wait 15 min and wash off. This is especially good for removing those little flakes of skin we all sometimes get. Yogurt MaskA great beauty mask is plain non-fat yogurt (no fruit) put on your face for 15 min rinse off. Gives a nice glow to your skin.Avocado/Yogurt MaskMashed bd of an avocado with equal parts non-fat plain yogurt and a tsp of lemon juice can actually do wonders to the skin as avocados are rich in vitamin E and they actually lighten skin color.Oatmeal/Avocado MaskIf you take avocado and mash it up, than take milk (just a little bit) and oatmeal mix them all together. Put it on your face. Leave it on for at least 30 min. if you want even smoother skin leave on longer. Take off with luke warm water. Your skin will be as smooth as a baby.Wheatgerm ScrubSimply put about a teaspoon of wheatgerm in your hand, add enough water to make a paste, and rub over your face and neck .rinse well tends to get caught in the hair line and can look like strange dandruff! Natural wheat germ needs a cool dry storage. Rosemary TonerSimmer fresh rosemary (great face steaming time!!) till water turns green and let it steep for a few hours pour into a container and put into frig use as a toner very gentle on skin and helps fight the oilies.Pine Fresh Witch HazelA nice refreshing toner can be made by boiling 2 Tbsp pine needles in a small amount of water, and adding it to 1 cup of witch hazel. Cider Vinegar Toner1 tsp Cider vinegar and 3 Tbls water. Must be Cider Vinegar NOT White Vinegar. The acid in the cider vinegar helps to balance your skin after cleansing. Helps prevent dryness, great for acne prone skin. Blackhead RemoverTo get rid of black heads boil 1/4 cup water and take out 2 teaspoons Epsom salt and 3 drops of iodine .. Now mix well and let cool then saturate with two cotton balls and rub onto skin. You will notice it takes out blackheads very quickly! Enjoy (hint: you can also double or triple ingredients so you can place it into a bottle and use anytime needed!)The Great Toothpaste ControversyI think everyone has already heard that using toothpaste on a pimple will make it go away overnight. There are two opinions on this subject. I’ll cover both.Pro-toothpasteA quick way to get rid of pimples overnight is to use toothpaste on them. It must be white toothpaste, not the gel types. Just dab a little right onto the pimple after cleaning your skin. The best time to do this is at night, works while you sleep. It’s the Peppermint Oil in the toothpaste that dries the pimple out you can buy this oil instead of using toothpaste.Con-toothpasteYou shouldn’t apply toothpaste to any part of the face to dry out pimples or oily skin. It dries it out so much that the oil glands in the skin work overtime and cause an influx of facial oil. This in turn will cause more pimples.Just stick with the moisturizing cleanser and moisturizer twice a day. (Only apply to a clean face with clean hands. You don’t want to contaminate your skin with daily germs.)Tea Tree Oil WashI use a small travel container and mix approximately 1/3 Hydrogen peroxide and 2/3 Witch Hazel (I usually go to Health Store and buy a witch hazel aloe vera liquid). Additionally I add a few drops of tea tree oil. Always shake slightly to allow the mixture to remix prior to each use, apply to cotton ball and wash over face with special attention to any current outbreaks of acne.Hydrogen Peroxide is water and oxygen and simply helps oxygenate the skin and has a disinfecting benefit against bacteria.Tea Tree oil has a strong anti fungal property, a few drop is plenty. Tea Tree also helps with scar healing, It has a medici
