Red Grape Facial Mask
Here is another homemade and natural facial recipe to try. I love simple and gentle ways to improve my skin, so in case you’re interested I thought I’d share. Red grapes contain vital antioxidants that are great for the skin. Alpha-Hydroxy Acid can also be found in red grapes. This acid has been around for centuries! Women have been reaping the benefits of AHAs by using it to obtain flawless and healthy looking skin (Cleopatra used AHAs). AHAs can be found in tons of cosmetic products today; although, it can also be found in natural form, which is in fruits and some dairy products. AHAs take the work out of exfoliating by gently eating away the dead skin, so you can give yourself and your skin a break from scrubbing with a grainy, gritty exfoliate. Exfoliation helps speed up cell renewal, reduce dark spots, and acne scars.
Remember that any new skin treatment incorporated into your normal routine will take 4-8 weeks to see results.
- 3-5 red grapes
- Fork and/or Spoon
Put 3-5 grapes in a bowl. Use a fork to prick each grape. Using the fork or a large spoon, mash the grapes until the juice comes completely out of the grapes. Apply the skin, pulp, and juice of the grapes onto your face and neck. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse with tepid water. Store in a sealed container if there’s extra, and use the next day.
