Alpha-Hydroxy Enzyme Mask

This is an excellent exfoliating mask which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin discolorations when used 2-3 times a week.

1/2 ripe papaya

4 strawberries

1 tablespoon brewer’s yeast

Cube the fruit and process in a blender until smooth. Pour into a small bowl and mix in the brewer’s yeast. Apply evenly to the face and neck. Allow the mask to remain on the face for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with tepid water. Yield: 1 application.
