AHA - naturally!

Category: Recipes
Posted: 2007-11-13 22:09

Apples, grapes, milk, and yogurt not only make a healthy breakfast, they are also a source of alpha hydroxy acids - commonly known as AHAs. It was only a few years ago that AHA's were all the buzz in skin care.

These food-based acids are the skin cleansers of the cosmetics industry and are used in many skin creams, lotions, and facial masks. AHAs safely and gently remove dead cells from the surface of the skin, revealing a fresh, healthy complexion. AHAs are the miracle rejuvenators!

Now, in your own home, it's easy to make an AHA mask or scrub with everyday kitchen items:

Combine yogurt with a bit of honey and some mashed fruit (for example strawberries). Added benefits from oatmeal (whirled in a blender) would be wonderful. Apply this "mask" to your face and let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse.

Note: Following exfoliation with AHAs your skin may be more susceptible to sunburn for a day or two.
