Pineapple Papaya Skin Smoother
This skin smoother contains enzymes and physical particles for maximum exfoliation, to smooth, brighten and even out your skin tone. If your skin is easily sensitized or sensitive use the Organic Oatmeal Cleansing Exfoliator. This is an ideal skin smoother for the face, body and feet.
1 ripe papaya
1 teaspoon papaya seeds
1 cup pineapple
1 tablespoon raw organic honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Put all of the ingredients into the Blendtec Twister Vessel (or blender of choice) and blend until smooth. It takes a powerful blender to pulverize the papaya seeds into powder-like particles that gently, yet thoroughly, exfoliate the skin.
For the Face: Apply to dampened facial skin and gently massage all over the face for about 30 seconds, paying special attention to the t-zone area of the face. Leave on the skin for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse. Apply your favorite moisturizer.
For the Body: Step into your shower and apply the mixture all over the body, paying special attention to areas where the skin is dryer and or thicker, like the elbows and knees. Vigorously massage the thighs, buttocks and back of the arms to exfoliate thoroughly and stimulate blood circulation. Finish with your favorite body cream.
For the Feet: Apply the mixture to your feet and wrap with saran wrap. Then cover each foot with a hand towel for 10- 15 minutes. Remove saran wrap, massage feet well, and rinse off. Complete with your favorite foot cream.
The Hand Smoother
When it comes to dry skin, hands tend to suffer the most. Gentle hand exfoliation is a great thing to do on a regular basis to improve skin texture, tone and smoothness.
4oz. ground almonds or almond meal
4 tsp almond oil
4tsp lemon juice
1 ½-2 oz organic goat milk yogurt
Put all of the ingredients into the Blendtec Twister Vessel (or blender of choice) and blend until smooth, to create a thick consistency.

Rub for 1-2 minutes, rinse off and apply hand cream.
Store the remaining product in a glass container. Label the container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Use daily, or two to three times a week, depending on your skin condition.
