Cranberry & Grape Facial Recipe

Cranberry sauce may be a Thanksgiving staple but the berries can be used any time of year to create this awesome anti-aging facemask by Erika Katz, beauty expert and author of Bonding Over Beauty, a great book for mothers and daughters.

You’ll need:

1 cup fresh cranberries

1 cup seedless red grapes

2 tsp grapefruit juice

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

Directions: Mix ingredients until the mixture becomes paste-like. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes and let it thicken. Remove from the fridge and let sit about 10 minutes. Spread the mixture on clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

The benefits of the mask come from the fruit acid, which acts as a gentle exfoliant; the grapefruit juice acts as a toner; and the cranberries are a rich antioxidant harboring a one-two punch of vitamins A and C to help with collagen production.
