Step #1: Start with preparation.
Prepare all the things you’ll need such as acidic fruits (lemons, limes, pineapple, or papayas), gelatin or yogurt, stove pot, blender, and stove.
Step #2: Pick fruits of your choice listed in number 1.
Mash it manually or use a blender to make things easier for you. Just make sure that if you do it manually, the large chunks will be dissolved. The reason for mashing the fruit is to extract and get all the natural oils and natural acids of the fruit. These are the natural chemicals that will help lift out the impurities of your skin.
Step #3: Prepare the gelatin or yogurt.
Prepare the gelatin by dissolving it to form a slimy texture. Get a pot and begin heating it using low fire. Mix the gelatin to dissolve it thoroughly. If you will use yogurt, just slightly heat the yogurt with a temperature that will not burn your skin. Gelatin and yogurts acts as thickening agents for your homemade chemical peel.
Step #4: Blend the mashed fruit with the gelatin or yogurt.
When gelatin and yogurt begin to heat slightly, pour in the raw and mashed fruit and turn off the heat. Continue mixing the ingredients until it is thoroughly blended and to be sure it will not harden. The ingredients will not harden if you are using yogurt. Let it cool down for a few minutes and test with your fingers if the temperature is tolerable to your skin.
Step #5: Apply the solution on your face.
When you think the temperature is enough, apply it to your face while still warm. Leave the natural chemical peel for at least 15 to 30 minutes.
Step #6: Remove the peel.
When the time is up, slowly remove the peel by washing it with water. Don’t try to scrub your face because your skin could be sensitive from the acids of the fruit. Be sure your eyes will not come into contact with the mixture.
Step #7: Consider all other precautions.
Test for any allergic reactions by rubbing a small amount of mixture into your jaw line. You will see the difference after 3 to 4 uses. Use a moisturizer after every session of using chemical peels. If skin feels so hot and irritated, wash off the mixture immediately. Always use sun block creams because skin may be sensitive after the treatment.
