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