No need to buy expensive peel-off facial masks. You can make them right in your own kitchen. All you need is a few simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
Fruity Facial Peel
Renew your skin with this fruity facial peel. Natural ingredients are used to exfoliate for a deep clean. The fruit provides nutrients that leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, and gives you a younger look. The best part is there are no harsh chemicals.
1 cup pineapple (best if you use fresh pineapple)
1 cup papaya (again, fresh is best)
1 tablespoon of honey
Add the pineapple and the papaya to the food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Next, add the honey and stir until well mixed to a paste consistency.
Start by cleaning your face as you normally do. Then, place a warm wet towel over your skin and leave for 5 to 10 minutes. This will help to open the pores and allow the mask to reach deep into the pores and remove the dead skin cells and dirt. Now, apply the mask evenly to your skin and allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Peel away the mask and rinse off remaining product.
Soothing Peel for Sensitive Skin
The aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber and green tea used in this facial peel will leave your skin feeling soothed and clean.
1 cucumber cut into small pieces (seeds removed)
3 teaspoons of green tea
3 teaspoons chamomile tea
Gelatin - 1 package unflavored
1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel
Peel the cucumber and remove the seeds. Cut into small pieces and add to a food processor or blender. Process the cucumber and then strain, retaining the juice.
Make a half cup of hot green tea and a half cup of chamomile tea.
Add ¼ cup of each tea to a small pot. Add the gelatin and cook over a low heat, stirring until dissolved. Now, add the aloe vera gel and the cucumber juice.
Allow the mixture to cool until it is gelled. Use a brush or other kitchen tool to apply the mask to your face. Now, sit back and relax for 20 minutes while the mask does its magic.
After 20 minutes, slowly peel the mask starting at the chin area and peeling upwards towards the forehead.
