How To: D.I.Y. Spa Treatment - Great Grape Mask

Here's a treat for those of you who are looking to save a little moolah, but don't want to skimp on your oh so necessary spa indulgences. This is a great do it yourself at home recipe for a quick pick me up grape face masque for under $5. All you need is a pestle and mortar (or a mini Cuisinart) and about two handfuls of red seedless grapes.

Grapes are a well known antioxidant that contain a natural ingredient called pycnogenol which is a skin purifier that helps to deep clean, tighten and refine the tone of your skin.

If your face is lookin' a little tired and you'd like to pep it up, use your fridge for a fast, easy and inexpensive instant fix.

  • Mash the grapes up good so that they are very fine - almost like a paste.
  • Use a paintbrush (one that's never been used preferably) with soft bristles and paint your entire face (stay away from your eyes) with the grapes.
  • Next, lie down for ten minutes and let nature do its thing.
  • Rinse off with cool water, pat dry and follow with your favorite moisturizer.

Hi Spartk540, I am sure that green would be ok, but I've been reading up on this and it does mention how red works best. But hey, if you've got a bunch of grapes going sour then better to use them then not, right?

I wonder if you would be able to do this with green grapes. Do they have to be red?
