1/2 cup peeled, chopped cucumber

5 strawberries hulled

1 tbsp baking soda

2 whole eggs

2 heaping tbsp yogurt

2/3 cup ground almonds

IN a blender, puree cucumer and strawberries.  Add baking soda, eggs, and yogurt and blend on medium low for 20 seconds.  Add almonds and blend for two minutes on pulse setting.  Apply to a moistened face in a gentle circular motion.  Scrub gently; too much pressure can be damaging.  Rinse with warm water and again with cold water to close the poors.  Pat face dry and follow with a cleanser.  May be used daily.  Store in refrigerator, discard after three days.

 For dry skin use heavy cream instead of yogurt.  For oily skin, use nonfat yogurt instead of regular yogurt and add 2 tsp lemon juice.
