Step 3: Once the consistency feels fine, pour your DIY vitamin C serum into a glass bottle.

Before you use it, make sure you do a patch test first; Apply a few drops of your DIY serum on your neck, palm and a tiny drop on your face and wait for about 24-48 hours to see if your skin reacts in any way. If not, then go ahead!
