Pear & Honey Face Peel
(I call this a face peel even though it feels more like a cooling mask, because of the way it naturally peels away the old dead skin cells from the surface of your face.)
1 ripe pear
½ Tbsp honey
½ -1 Tbsp Almond milk (can sub. w/ coconut, rice or soy milk, but I wouldn’t use cows milk because you don’t need the heavy fat in it.)
Directions: Peel, core and chop the pear and place in a bowl. Mash the pear with a fork to get it chunky. Add the honey and almond milk. Use a fork or potato masher to combine the ingredients until they are a smooth texture like applesauce. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or foil to seal and allow the mixture to fuze for about one hour.
This mixture makes enough for 2-3 peels depending on how much you apply. Store in a glass jar or container with a tight lid in the refrigerator for approx. a week.
To use: Apply mixture to face (and neck if desired) gently with your fingers. Leave on for about 10-15 minutes and rinse off with cool water, not warm/hot water. I would suggest not re-applying to face the following day, wait and use it every other day, only if needed.
*My skin is very dry and often when the weather changes I get redness on my checks. After just one use this face peel made my skin smooth and soft, and the redness vanished.
