Feel Fresh With a Fruit Facial
The salicylic acid in strawberries acts as a great exfoliator for your skin while strawberries also work to heal blemishes with their natural antioxidants.
All you have to do to prepare your strawberry facial is puree half a cup of ripe strawberries with ¼ cup cornstarch, rub it onto your face and leave it there for half an hour, then rinse it off with cool water.
Bananas are rich in nutrients like iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, and vitamins A, B an E. These nutrients work together in a mask to protect your skin against the effects of aging.
For your banana facial, mix together a mashed banana, one tablespoon of water and two tablespoons of oat flour. Pat it onto your face and neck, leave it on for 20 minutes and then rub it off with a damp washcloth.
Mangos are rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B and C, so a mango facial will not only fight signs of aging on your skin, it will also help your skin cells to regenerate and improve skin elasticity while healing impurities.
Just mix the pulp of ¼ of a mango with ¼ cup yogurt, apply it to your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, and then rinse it off.
Kiwi is a powerful fruit that will moisturize your skin, and with vitamins A, C, E, and citric acid, it will tighten your pores while it absorbs excess oil, making your skin refreshed and radiant.
For your kiwi facial, mix together one egg yolk, one tablespoon of fresh kiwi juice, and one tablespoon of olive oil. Apply it to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes, then rub it off with a damp washcloth.
Lemons are rich in alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin C, so a lemon facial will brighten your skin tone, helping aging spots or sun spots to fade.
Mix two tablespoons warm honey and one tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, smooth it onto your face with your fingers, leave it on for 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
