Recipes: Face
 
A simple firming and toning remedy.
Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons hot distilled water
  • 1 teaspoon freshly juiced apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable glycerin
  • 1 heaping teaspoon powdered pectin
Method
  1. Add the glycerin to the water/juice/gel combination and stir to fully incorporate.
  2. Add the pectin while the liquid remains quite warm (if it cools, place it in the microwave or a double boiler to raise the temperature) and use a hand held electric mixer to blend, or stir vigorously to dissolve the pectin.
  3. Once the pectin has fully dissolved, a light gel will begin to form. This may take from 15 minutes to 1/2 hour.
  4. Once the gel sets, Apple Face & Neck Gel is ready to use.
  5. Apply the gel in a layer to your clean, damp face and neck.
  6. Rest for 15 minutes.
  7. Rinse with warm water and follow with a light moisturizer if desired.
By the Way
Approx. 2 applications. Leftover product can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week but the shelf life of this product is necessarily limited by the fresh apple juice.
