Fresh Fruit Facials For Healthy Skin
I was having coffee with a friend last week, and we were discussing our extensive skin care regimens. As we were exchanging tips and advice, I realised that I had amassed a virtual recipe box of facials that can be done using fresh fruit. As there are many of you out there that could benefit from this knowledge, I have decided to share my insights.
One of my favourites is the peach facial, which works very well as a tightening mask. Simply take a ripened peach, and remove the skin and the pit from the centre. Place the peach and the whites from a single egg in a blender, and whip until smooth. Pat the mixture onto your face, and allow it to sit there for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
I have found that the apple mask is perfect for healthy skin. Peel, core, and quarter an apple. Chop the apple in your blender, and add two tablespoons of honey. Blend until smooth. Then remove the mixture from the mixer, and refrigerate for approximately 10 minutes. Apply the mixture to your face using a patting motion, and be sure to pat until the honey becomes tacky. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, and rinse with warm water.
I have also had great success with a Strawberry mask that my friend told me about. The trick here is to use extremely ripe Strawberries. Add approximately a cup of strawberries and a cup of cornstarch to the blender, and mix until smooth. Apply the mixture to your face, and be careful to avoid the area around your eyes. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and rinse it off with lukewarm water.
The next facial mask is excellent for the blemished skin. Chop a ripened tomato into small pieces, and place it in your blender. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice and some instant oatmeal or rolled oats. Mix until it is all combined. Do not mix for too long, as it will not stick to your face. If it gets too thin, just add more oatmeal. Apply the mixture, and leave it on for 10 minutes. Scrub it off using a warm, wet cloth.
There are many different ways to care for your skin, and as many various products on the market. In my experience, I love many products, especially DMK, but why not have fun with natural fruit facials, which have worked wonders for me. I hope you enjoy them.
