Just a little thought to be aware of when using any type of fruits if making into a mask - fruits contain acid, and acid burns. Please do not leave crushed fruit or juices (esp. lemons, limes, oranges, citrus in general) on your face as an overnight mask. Citrus can start cooking meat, fish, etc. over a period of time when used as a marinade. So please be careful.

Alpha hydroxy acid is in a lot of fruits and it will over time peel off layers of outer skin and make it look nicer. So will lactic acid. So you can use crushed fruit, or yoghurt or buttermilk. You might try getting a can of dry powdered buttermilk and mixing a teaspoon into your lotion [any] and put it on your face until it dries or for an hour or so a day, then rinse. Would probably stick better than grapes.
I have used face creams with AHA and lactic acid. Both work. Walgreens has an inexpensive type, around $5 on sale every now and then. You can tell they work because after about 3 weeks one day after you've washed your face you will notice all this dead skin rubbing off. Just rub off with towel.
