THIS IS NOT EDIBLE

TOTAL TIME: 35 min
Prep: 5 min
Inactive Prep: 20 min
Cook: 10 min

INGREDIENTS:

1 kiwi, peeled
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 papaya
2 sachets vegetable gelatine

DIRECTIONS:

Mash the kiwi through a sieve into a bowl. Add the lime juice. Scoop the seeds from the papaya, and mash the flesh on a chopping board using a fork (this makes it slightly easier to press through the sieve). Press the papaya through a sieve into a separate bowl and mix with the vegetable gelatine using a fork.

Put the bowl with the papaya mixture over, but not touching, a saucepan of boiling water and stir constantly until it forms a wallpaper-paste consistency. Take off immediately and continue to stir. Add the kiwi and lime juice slowly, bit by bit, stirring constantly. Leave to cool.

When cool or lukewarm, apply the gel to your face, avoiding the eye area, and leave for 10 minutes to 1 hour. Wash off with warm water.

This face cream is most effective when used as soon as possible, but it keeps in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
