When it comes to improve the tone and texture of your skin, the significance of skin peels is undeniable. These peels contribute to improve the complexion by sloughing off all the impurities including dead skin cells accumulated on the skin. The dead skin is then replaced by a brand new, utterly fresh skin that is clear and free from any sort of impurities.
Cosmetic counters and drugstores are today flooded with a vast variety of over-the-counter skin peels. However, the majority of these products are chemical based and contain several abrasive chemicals to peel off the affected or old skin and can bring about different skin-related issues like breakouts and scar development. So, it is always better to create your own skin peels at home. Not only are these free of any acids and chemicals but also less likely to cause any side effects.
Here is given a recipe of an excellent homemade skin peel.
The ingredients you’ll need to create the peel include 2 tbsp granulated cane sugar – 1 package unflavored gelatine – half cup water – small saucepan – 2 quart saucepan – 6 cups water – slotted spoon – 1 ripe tomato – Saucer – Blender – 1 tbsp orange juice – 1 tbsp lemon juice – Skin cleanser – Small plastic container with self sealing lid
Combine 2 tbsp granulated cane sugar and one packet of unflavored gelatine in a saucepan. Glycolic acid present in sugar is an excellent peeling agent while gelatine works to thicken the mixture.
Next add half up water to the mixture and heat it on slow heat until it is thoroughly dissolved. Keep on whipping the mixture while heating.
Cool down the mixture for a couple of minutes and then pour the mixture in a blender.
Now take six cups of water in another saucepan and heat it until boiled. Add one ripened tomato to the scorching water and allow it to boil until its skin starts to come off. Tomatoes facilitate the restoration of natural pH balance of skin.
Take the tomato out and place it in a container full of cold water.
Once the tomato is cool enough, peel it and put it in the blender containing sugar and gelatine mixture after cutting it in four pieces. Also add orange juice and lemon juice in the mixture.
Blend the mixture until you get a consistent paste. Store the paste in an air tight jar and use it regularly.
