The Facial Cure Acne Smoothie

Susie Galvez's Facial Smoothie

Susie Galvez provides readers with this at-home spa recipe-a treatment she calls a "quick skin-picker-upper"-that's ideal for acne sufferers. It appears, with her permission, from one of her books, "Ooh La La: Perfect Face."


  • 1/4 cup of melon
  • 1/4 cup fresh pineapple
  • 1/ 2 cup of seltzer water


Place all ingredients in a blender. Mix well.

Apply the mixture to the face and neck.

Allow the mask to remain on the skin for 15 minutes.

Rinse well with cold water to tighten your pores.

Pat your face dry.


"Pineapple contains enzymes that help remove dead skin cells," Galvez explains, "while the melon gently moisturizes and rehydrates your face. The seltzer water adds a little effervescence to help speed up the action of the fruit combo and to make it work more effectively."
