Green Skincare: Fresh From Your Kitchen

Strawberry Kiwi Exfoliating Mask

1 ripe kiwi
2 medium sized ripe strawberries, or 3 small
1 T sour cream

makes enough for you and a friend, or save remainder in fridge for up to 1 week

peel kiwi fruit, cut in quarters
remove stems from strawberries, cut in half
puree all ingredients

Apply to clean face with upward circular motions.
Leave on face 10-15 min
warm clean hands under faucet and rub into face to enhance exfoliating properties while splashing with warm water to remove
follow with Grapeseed Organic Skincare chamomile & grapefruit moisturizer and/or rose & grape serum

What it Does:
Strawberries and kiwis are chock full of vitamin C and contain round seeds that gently exfoliate the skin, naturally. Sour cream contains a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid from lactic acid in the cream that exfoliates and renews the cellular surface of the skin, while brightening and toning.
