Homemade Peels for Naturally glowing skin

Peels are designed to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, giving your face a smoother, more radiant appearance. When used regularly over a period of time, they also promise to minimize pores and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Cucumber peel:

Wash 1 small cucumber and remove the peel and seeds. Cut the cucumber into chunks and puree them in blender. Pour the puree into a colander or clean cloth to drain the liquid into a bowl. 

Add Aloe Vera gel, green tea or chamomile tea and unflavored gelatin to the cucumber liquid. Apply the mixture to the facial and neck area for 25 minutes. Remove the peel by washing your face with warm water.

Pumpkin Peel:

Peel the pumpkin and cut it into chunks. Place the chunks, strings and seeds in a dish with 1/4 cup of water. Place the chunks, strings and seeds in a dish with 1/4 cup of water. Blend pumpkin, pineapple, oils and oats in blender to form a paste.
Apply the mixture to your face and neck and let it remain for 20 minutes. To remove, rinse your face with soap and water. Apply moisturizer if needed.

Tomato Peel:

Rinse 1 medium ripe tomato. Place the tomato into a blender on low speed for a few seconds. Rub the puree on your face and let it dry. To remove, wash your face with soap and water.

Citrus Peel:

Place 1/2 of a lemon and 1/2 of an orange, 1/2 cup of pineapple and 1/2 cup of papaya and 1-2 tbs. of honey or plain yogurt into blender and puree. Rub mixture on face and let set for 25 minutes. Glycolic acids, which are created by citrus peels, help reduce wrinkles, hyper pigmentation and over sized pores.
