When it comes to fighting off the flu or even preventing it in the first place, a good dose of Vitamin C is automatically comes to mind. Everyone knows that Vitamin C is just the thing to give your immune system the boost it needs, but did you know that aside from keeping the sniffles away, it can also help keep those age spots and wrinkles at bay?
It’s true. Not only is Vitamin C anti-sickness, but it is also anti-aging as well.
Aside from just popping a pill, you can actually apply Vitamin C topically- directly on your skin. One of the best ways to do is with this DIY Vitamin C Face Mask. Affordable, effective, and- the best part- ONLY TWO INGREDIENTS NEEDED.

What To Do:
This homemade mask is one of the easiest. Gathering your mere 2 ingredients is probably the hardest part.

You can mix both ingredients in a small bowl or, to save yourself from cleaning up, right in the palm of your hand. Once well blended together, voila, you have yourself your very own homemade Vitamin C Face Mask.
How To Apply:
Just as with other face masks, you want to start with a clean face. Make sure that your face has been washed and patted dry. Simply take some of your homemade Vitamin C mask and apply evenly in a circular motion all over your face and neck. Avoid the eye area of course. Let it sit for a good ten minutes or so. Then rinse off with cold water and pat dry.
Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
