Kiwi fruit tastes amazing, but it's also great to help you create a simple DIY facial mask. It's perfect for the summer months when you're spending more time outside and maybe even more time without makeup. Kiwi contains vitamins C and E, not to mention natural alpha hydroxy properties!
Alpha hydroxy acids found in kiwi and the lactic acid in the yogurt are good for exfoliation. And there's moisture for your skin, too! The vitamin E and olive oil in this DIY facial mask take care of that, while the vitamin C found in the kiwi can help rejuvenate your skin and protect it from free radicals.
DIY kiwi facial mask
Before applying the mask to your face, first test it on your inner arm where you skin is more sensitive, to help ensure you can tolerate the ingredients. Wash your face to remove any dirt or makeup, and dry it completely. Apply the mask to your face starting at your chin and working your way up, taking care to avoid your eyes. Relax while the mask dries on your face, and then rinse it off with warm water.
- 1 kiwi, pureed
- 1-1/2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- Puree the kiwi in a food processor until it's smooth.
- In a small bowl, combine the kiwi, yogurt and olive oil. Mix well.
- Add a thin layer of the mask to a clean face.
- Allow the mixture to dry slightly, and then rinse it off with warm water.
