In­gre­di­ents

◆ 1 packet of un­flavoured gelatin ◆ ½ cup fresh fruit juice suited to your skin type

Equip­ment

◆ Small saucepan, bowl and fa­cial mask brush or spat­ula Pour into a small saucepan the un­flavoured gelatin and the juice best suited to your skin type. Heat the in­gre­di­ents over a low heat un­til the gelatin com­pletely dis­solves, mak­ing sure to stir it con­stantly. Trans­fer the mix­ture into a bowl and place it in the re­frig­er­a­tor for about 20 min­utes. The gelatin should be­come firm but not too hard, so it can be eas­ily spread over the face. Us­ing a fa­cial mask brush or spat­ula, ap­ply the paste onto your face, mak­ing sure to leave the del­i­cate skin around the lips and eyes free. Leave the mix­ture on your skin for 25 to 30 min­utes or un­til it dries. Peel off the mask slowly and gen­tly in an up­wards direc­tion. Wash your face with cold wa­ter and pat your face dry with a towel. Ap­ply face cream or mois­turiser as nor­mal. Oil and acne-prone skin: grape­fruit, or­ange, lime, lemon, white grape juice, tomato or car­rot juice. Nor­mal or dry skin: straw­berry, pear, papaya, ap­ple, rasp­berry or peach juice. For max­i­mum ben­e­fit com­bine some of these juices to­gether.
