Ordinary Fruit Facials for Healthy Shining Skin

Natural Fruit Facials have been preferred since centuries to receive a healthy shining skin. You may know the properties of each fruit; you can indulge yourself with an all-natural fruit mask, without spending much time or money. Follow the below fruit facial tips to gain a smooth, healthy & toned skin.

Before and After a Fruit Facial
When using any fruit mask, wash your face & neck before applying the mixture. Apply the fruit mask gently along with your fingertips, avoiding the weak area around your eyes & lips. Leave the mask on for 15-20 mins, then wipe your face with a soft warm towel & rinse your skin thoroughly with Luke-warm water. After this, splash some ice-cold water on your face to tighten your pores, and then finish by applying a coating of light lotion over your face.
Do not use the below mentioned fruits without a good patch-test on your skin.
The alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) in peaches makes this a great mask for common skin regeneration. It helps decrease wrinkles, remove dead skin, and smart your pores. Merge it with some cooked oatmeal or yogurt and use the puree as a facial. The oatmeal helps to heal irritated skin and moisturizes, as does the yogurt.

Avocados offer your skin the antioxidant property of Vitamin E. The proteins and fats in the fruit draw dryness in to your skin and helps fill up the fine lines & wrinkles. Mash it with one egg yolk and apply to face for twenty mins, then wash it to relieve and smooth dry skin; this is nice in summers.

Bananas control vitamins A, B, C, and E as well as potassium. They smooth and support your skin while the antioxidants filter it. Mash half of a mature banana with tablespoons of honey and tablespoons of sweet balm (for oily skin, use tablespoons of lemon or orange juice for the sour cream), apply on your face for 15 mins and wash off for direct glow.

A member of the rose relatives, strawberries contains salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, allowing it to sop up moisture more effectively. Strawberries also have a light bleaching result on the skin & help heal blemishes. Reduce to pulp 1/2 cup ripe strawberries with 1/4 cup cornstarch; apply for 30 mins, then rinse off with cold water.

The silica in cucumber is an important factor of healthy connective tissue, and helps develop the complexion and health of the skin. The high water satisfied makes it a natural moisturizer, while the ascorbic acid and caffeic acid in cucumbers avoid water maintenance (puffy eyes and dark circles). You can rub it raw on your face, or use a cucumber facial recipe to directly refresh your skin.
