If you really want incredibly soft skin, you could try using pineapple or papaya. Pineapple is among one of the highest sources of AHA’s. Though I wouldn’t recommend using it for the face due to the strength of AHA’s. Basically, I will cut a fresh pineapple and apply slices of it to my feet wrapped in plastic wrap before going to sleep. Just use some masking tape to lightly tape it on so you won’t get pineapple juice on the sheets. It’s simple. All you have to do is sleep with pineapple (fresh) on your feet or any other rough area such as hands, elbows, knees, etc, and when you wake up your skin will feel just like a baby…without a scrub which can sometimes be abrasive.
Another tip of mine is to use papaya on the skin. You can apply this to the face and neck along with anywhere else. You could try mashing it up and using alone or in recipes. One to try:
- 1 papaya
- 1 package of gelatin
- 3 Tbsp of water
Dissolve the gelatin with 3 tablespoons of water over low heat. Thoroughly blend the peeled, seeded papaya, strain the juice, and mix the juice with the gelatin. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, then apply to body for 15 mins. Rinse off. The results….this is something you will just have to try!!!!!!!!!!!
