Berry season is here! To celebrate, we're sharing the Alpha Hydroxy Facial from The Natural Beauty Solution by Mary Helen Leonard. It looks good enough to eat, no?!
1/2 cup organic berries
2 tbsp organic plain yogurt
2 tbsp kaolin clay
water or hydrosol, as needed
Combine berries, yogurt, and kaolin clay in a blender and puree until smooth. If you don't have a blender, simply mash the berries with the other ingredients to form a paste. If the mixture is too thick to spread easily, add a little bit of water or hydrosol to loosen it up.
Apply the mixture liberally to your face and neck. Allow the mixture to dry for about ten minutes, then use your fingers to gently massage the mixture into your skin using slow, circular motions. Rinse with tepid water, then follow with a toner and moisturizer. This recipe should be used right away, but can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
