Radical isn't always bad, but we don't need free radicals ravaging our lovely skin! This facial is loaded with vitamin C, an anti-oxidant for great skin, and acts as a slight "peel". Very refreshing! Make it and use it as needed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 3 teaspoons pectin
  • 18 teaspoon vitamin C powder (or crystals)
  • 18 teaspoon liquid glycerin
  • 14 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Dissolve pectin in hot water, then add the rest of the ingredients to this mixture.
  2. Pat on your face and wait for 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse off face with water.

This is a terrific recipe, I will use it often. However, you should know that it requires LIQUID pectin. The first time I made it I used the dry pectin, which turned into sullen little snot balls that wouldn't spread onto my face. Liquid pectin will deliver a smooth, unctuous product that leaves your skin deliciously soft. Try it!
