Beauty: Homemade Kiwi Mask

By Friday, August 10, 2012 , ,

It's Day7 of my Zespri 14-day Challenge! I can't believe i've lasted this long but it has been quite an interesting 1 week with all my lovely kiwifruits. This lazy girl has obviously been lazy at creating kiwi dishes. The best i've managed is the Kiwifruit Salsa. And a granola kiwifruit yogurt for breakfast. ZZZ. Fret not! Even if you are lazy like me, it's not that hard to incorporate the Vit C packed fruit in your diet. You can actually do different things with the same ingredients such as... making your own facial mask!

I'm not a facial person and i've only recently started on my skincare regime (things you do when you get older). I'm really simple when it comes to facial products and i don't see the need in spending so much money on chemicals when you can get them from natural products such as fruits and vegetables!
Kiwifruits contain the highest level of Vitamin C, which is an antioxidant. It is also rich in Vitamins A and E, which are beneficial for our skin and hair, giving us that radiant complexion. Other than eating them, it also works wonders when you use it on your face. I'm going to share with you a simple kiwi yogurt mask to give you that additional glow. :)
1 Zespri Kiwifruit (3-4 teaspoon of juice)
2 Tablespoons of Yogurt
1 Tablespoon of Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon of Almond Oil

Instructions:Puree the kiwifruit in the food processor or blender or simply chop and mash it up.
Add the other ingredients in
Mix till you get a smooth thick and creamy paste (mine is a little watery)
Apply to face and leave till dry (about 30mins)
Wash off with cold water.
After washing off my mask, my skin feels moisturized and supple. Eating kiwifruits helps with the detox and i was actually getting a breakout because the pores are trying to unclog themselves :(( So it's a great thing that they soothe my skin when i apply the fruits on instead. 1 fruit, multiple wholesome uses. Now go try it for yourself! :))
