Cranberry Anti-Aging Face Mask
In this recipe you will find ingredients such as fresh cranberries, grapefruit and grapes. Such ingredients firm, brighten and increase collagen production.The benefits of the mask come from the fruit acid, which acts as a gentle exfoliant; the grapefruit juice acts as a toner; and the cranberries and grapes which are a rich, antioxidant harboring one-two punch of vitamins A and C to help increase collagen production.
Fresh & Fun Ingredients:
1 cup fresh cranberries
1 cup seedless red grapes
2 tsp grapefruit juice
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
Pulse ingredients in food processor until the mixture becomes paste-like. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes and let it thicken. Remove from the refrigerator and let sit about 10 minutes. Spread the mixture on clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Apply daily moisturizer. Voila! Beautiful, soft and glowing skin!
