By combining it with other natural ingredients like orange juice, glycerine, rose oil, and cornflour, you can create a luxurious and effective cream that will leave your skin looking and feeling its best.
Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, this DIY Vitamin C Night Cream is suitable for all skin types and can help you achieve a healthy, youthful glow. So, let’s dive into the recipe and learn how to make this amazing skincare solution at home.
- Orange juice
- Vegetable glycerine
- Rose oil – This is a carrier oil
- Orange essential oil
- Vitamin E capsule
- Corn flour
- Optional: Orange food coloring
- Measuring cups
- Silicone or wooden spoons
- Stainless steel pot for the hot water bath (bain-marie)
- Container to store the cream
Steps: DIY Vitamin C Night Cream
1- Add a 1/2 cup of orange juice to a bowl.
2- Add a full teaspoon of corn flour.
3- Mix the ingredients using a silicone or wooden spoon, till the corn flour is fully dissoved.
4- Perform a hot water bath. A hot water bath is done by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl without causing it to burn. As the contents melt, make sure to mix every now and then.
When the contents start to turn a bit “creamy”, you can take the bowl out of the hot bath.
5- Add a 1/2 teaspoon of rose carrier oil.
6- Add a 1/2 teaspoon of glycerine.
7- Add 5 drops of orange essential oil.
8- Optional: Add one drop of orange food coloring and mix with the ingredients.
9- Cut a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the contents into the bowl and mix well.
10- Pour the contents of the bowl into a container for storage.
11- Put the container in the refrigerator to allow the contents to harden, and you’re all done!
Important: Store the cream in the fridge when not in use. Even with that, the cream will be valid for about a week, after which it has to be discarded.

Benefits: DIY Vitamin C Night Cream
The DIY Vitamin C Night Cream offers a range of benefits for your skin.
Firstly, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can lead to premature aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.
It can also help to brighten your complexion by reducing the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration.
In addition, the other natural ingredients used in the cream, such as orange juice, glycerine, rose oil, orange essential oil, and vitamin E capsule, offer a range of nourishing and rejuvenating benefits. These ingredients can help to hydrate your skin, reduce inflammation, and promote collagen production, which can lead to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. The cornflour also helps to create a silky smooth texture, which makes the cream easy to apply and absorb.
Overall, the DIY Vitamin C Night Cream is a natural and effective way to nourish and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep, leaving you with a healthy, radiant glow.
