If your skin is sun-damaged, or blotchy with high-pigmentation, before you succumb to expensive laser treatments, give this natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid mask a try.
1 fresh papaya ( peeled, seeds removed and cut into small cubes.)
1/2 fresh pineapple ( peeped, cored, and cut into small cubes.)
If you have a juicer that has a setting for soft fruit, this will be perfect for extracting the juice ( you also don't need to peel or core the fruit.) If not, crush the fruit cubes with a mortar and pestle and then press through a sieve to extract the juice.
Yields: Enough for one application
Application: Use once a week for six weeks.
Saturate a cotton pad or ball in the juice and apply to your decollete, neck and face in upward strokes. Leave the juice to dry for fifteen minutes, then rinse off with warm water and moisturize as usual.
(Note: A tingling sensation is normal, as the acids are clearing away those dead skin cells. If the sensation becomes too much, rinse if off earlier.)
