Natural Beauty & Healthy Enzyme Residue DIY

The multipurpose of using the Kiwi Aloe Fruit Enzyme residues for healthy food, beauty care and foot care.

I used Kiwi Aloe Fruit Enzyme residues blended into jam and spread into bread for my breakfast.













At time I would also used it as my natural AHA fruit acid body scrub. They work by micro-exfoliation process to remove dead skin cell same as using sugar scrub for body treatment. Therefore it has good result of revealing new skin cell. It helps improve and soften dead skin, and make it fairer, softening and regeneration in promoting skin texture. However, they may be harsh to the skin when first using it with careful and correct quantity. Make sure it is dilute with water to make it milder in application. In beauty therapeutic we called it "soft peeling".

For foot spa, just added 50oz with 1000cc of water to dilute it into a foot soaking basin. Soaking it for 10 – 15 minutes, it improves and softens the hard callus and removes odors as well.

Note* you may feel a bit of mild tangling sensation. This is normal reaction of some of the ingredient literally digest the surface skin cell by dissolving it.

Before I am turning GREEN…so as I begin to do my First GREEN APPLE + GREEN APPLE MANGOES fruit enzyme, Ambarella fruit + GREEN APPLE MANGOES fruit enzyme DIY .
