Here is the recipe:
a) Cornmeal (Physical exfoliator)
- Grapefruit juice
Mix cornmeal and yogurt into a paste and add a teaspoon of grapefruit juice. Massage your face gently for 30 sec- 1 min. You can rinse it off or leave it on for 2-3 minutes. I prefer to leave it on and then rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with a cool rinse, dry your face and put on a moisturizer of your choice.
-Cornmeal contains Vitamin C (helps build connective tissue and heal wounds rapidly with minimal scarring), Vitamin A
(enhances skin’s moisture optimally for desirable elasticity that reduces aged appearance), and phytochemicals like phytic acid (antioxidants for protection against environmental free radicals in the form of pollutants). Cornmeal acts as a sponge absorbing the oil from skin without drying it out– leaving skin soft and shine-free with radiant vitality. Promotes healthy epidermal cell growth.
Grapefruit Juice (Chemical exfoliator)
Grapefruit juice has restorative properties that can help tone skin, even out skin color, and safely and gently cleanse skin. The anti-oxidants in grapefruit will fight free radicals in the skin that can cause lines, wrinkles, discolorations and other blemishes. Natural anti-bacterial properties.
Of the citrus fruits, grapefruit has the highest concentration of vitamin C, which is necessary for collagen production in the skin.
