Have you ever noticed how many facial cleansers and masks have fruity ingredients like citrus or strawberry? It’s not just for the smell, this food group provides great benefits for your skin and there’s no need to run out to the drugstore and grab products with these ingredients, when you can put the real thing right on your face and get the same benefit. Here are a few fruits to grab from your fridge to freshen up your face.
This yellow fruit is rich in vitamin A, B and E which means it’s great to prevent aging and wrinkles and help maintain a healthy skin tone. Add 1 tsp of honey and 1/4 tsp of jojoba oil to create a nice firming and moisturizing mask.
Lemons, limes, oranges, and tangerines have great astringent properties that help restore skin to it’s natural state. If there are dark spots or acne scars you want to lighten, simply take the inside of the whole fruit or just the rind and rub it across your face. Leave the juice on your skin for about 10-15 minutes and rinse. You should notice a nice toning effect and oil reduction when you’re done.
