Of Kourse, we’ve been talking about Kiwis this week, so I happen to have some in my frig. I just ate some with my yogurt and granola, but now let’s make a face cleaner out of the leftover kiwis.
Kiwis are full of Vitamins C, A & E – all excellent for naturally healthy and beautiful skin. The anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids available when you eat a kiwi are also great for your skin.
In my kitchen, in addition to those kiwis, I also have olive oil and eggs which make a great facial mask. Take 1 TBL. kiwi juice, 1 TBL. olive oil and the yolk of one egg and mix it all up. Slather it all over your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and feel fabulous!
Kiwi and vodka make a great toner for your skin.
KIWI FACIAL TONER
1 cup boiling water
1 ripe kiwi fruit, peeled and mashed
1 tablespoon vodka
Pour the boiling water over the mashed kiwi fruit and cool for about 20 minutes. Strain the mixture to liquefy the solids. Add vodka and stir. Use a cotton pad to apply the mixture to the skin and rinse with cool water. Keep the leftover mixture in the frig for no more than 10 days.
