We all know about the nutritional benefits of eating fruit daily. But do you know about the wonders these fruits can do for your skin when they are used as a face mask? You may have heard about the wonders of a turmeric face pack or a honey face pack but it’s time you tried out a homemade face pack bursting with the natural goodness of fruits!
Read on to know more about face packs for glowing skin and how to get beautiful:
– Papaya and Honey Face Pack
Papaya can do magic not just for your weight loss efforts but also your facial skin. Using papaya and honey as a face pack will definitely get you a glowing face as papaya is rich in Vitamin A and the papain enzyme which will exfoliate your skin effectively, and will also prevent signs of aging and acne and any scare you might have. Honey will hydrate your skin, thereby acting as a natural moisturizer.
– Tomato Face Pack
While the status of tomatoes as fruits is still being disputed, go ahead and use this pulpy source of nutrition as an ingredient in a face mask, as it contains Vitamins A and C, lycopene and antioxidants, all of which aid your skin’s oxygenation process, thereby reducing the damage caused by harmful UV rays and slowing down the ageing process. Add oatmeal and yogurt to the tomato puree to get a fruit pack for oily skin. If you’re looking for a fruit pack for dry skin, simply replace the yogurt with milk.
– Cucumber Face Pack
Cucumbers have the ability to cool not just your stomach but your skin as well. A homemade face pack made of pureed cucumber, honey, milk and brown sugar will reduce any inflammation or water retention, and is also a good healing agent for tanned or even burnt skin. The milk in this fruit pack will improve the elasticity and texture of your facial skin. This combination makes for a good fruit pack for oily skin as well as a recommended fruit pack for dry skin.
– Banana Face Pack
Mash together with a few bananas and add some honey and lemon juice and you’ve got yourself a fruit pack for oily skin! Banana, with its high levels of Vitamins A, B6 and C as well as antioxidants will detoxify your skin, making it healthy and moisturized, yet keep it oil-free. The lemon juice in this pack will reduce your scars and blemishes, and fight acne, while the honey will prevent the occurrence of acne in the future.
– Orange Peel Face Pack
Now you can enjoy the taste of those pulpy oranges and save the rinds to make a homemade face pack. Add yogurt and honey to powdered orange rinds to make a fruit pack for oily skin. The orange rinds will clean out your pores, leaving your skin refreshed, while the honey and yogurt in the fruit pack will hydrate your skin, and reduce the impact of tanning respectively, leaving your skin soft and smooth.
While these face packs for glowing skin are good to maintain the health and appearance of your facial skin, in case you are facing skin troubles such as acne, warts, scars, stretch marks, etc., it’s important to visit an established clinic such as Apollo Cosmetic Clinics and get your skin tested and checked by top dermatologists in order to ensure that your skin condition doesn’t get worse and that existing damage is taken care of. Also, if you have a special occasion coming up, you can always opt for a peel that will remove the dead skin from your face and literally give it new life!
