DIY: Fruity Kiwi Facial Cleanser (for dry or oily skin types)

kiwiIt's Sunday, and my skin is feeling a little tight and tired after the night before - so this recipe sounds really nice and soothing. I'm off to the shops for the necessary ingredients, oh - and the Sunday papers.

Kiwi fruit contain a high level of vitamins C and E to help optimise skin moisture levels, and they also contain natural antioxidants. Using Kiwi's can help the skin maintain a youthful appearance whilst rejuvenating tired looking skin.


  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon orange water
  • 1 tablespoon apricot or almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground almonds
  • 2 drops orange (or your favorite citrus) essential oil

Puree the kiwi fruit in a food processor until liquid. During processing, add yogurt, orange water, almond or apricot oil, and ground almonds. Process until thick and cream like. Add essential and stir to mix. To apply, massage gently over neck, face and décolleté to cleanse. Rinse well. Makes one application.
