Fruits are always great for your skin. Whether you make a dessert out of it or use it in your beauty recipe, fruits offer wonderful benefits to your skin and to your health.
How To Do It?
Normally, a fruit facial kit contains a fruit-based cleanser, fruit scrub, fruit massage gel/cream or both, fruit face pack and a fruit-based moisturizing/anti-tanning/anti-ageing formula. You start by cleaning your skin and then exfoliating it mildly and then you go for a facial massage, application of pack and then follow up with a skin care lotion. It is done best at a salon of your choice. At the same time, you can choose to invest in a fruit facial kit available so easily in the market and get it done at the comfort of your home.
Homemade Fruit Facial Ideas:
Homemade fruit facial is preferable , if it is about something as readily available as fruits, you should just not be ready to invest in a packaged kit, which will contain many preservatives and chemicals apart from the much-desired fruit extracts.
Mix lime juice with raw milk and a pinch of salt. Soak a cotton ball in this lotion and deep-cleanse your skin by rubbing the cotton against your face in an upward circular motion. Do this for a couple of minutes and wash off with lukewarm water.
Now it is time for scrubbing your face with your favorite fruit scrub. Depending upon the season, you may choose to have seasonal fruit-based scrubs like orange scrub, watermelon scrub or papaya scrub. You may also like to use a lemon scrub if your have an oily face or bananas scrub for dry skin.
Mash some banana, strawberry or some papaya. Mix it up with a spoon of milk and some honey. If you have oily and acne-prone skin, you may like to skip the milk and use lemon juice instead. Blend it to get a creamy mixture and use it to massage your face gently. Wipe it away.
4) FACE PACK:
Now make your favourite face pack depending upon your skin type and based on your skin needs. For instance, if you want to get rid of tan, prepare a cucumber juice-lemon juice solution or a yoghurt-lemon pack. If you want to get a glowing face, mix orange juice with milk and a few drops of honey and use as a pack. If you want to treat excess oily secretion and pimples, make a pack by mixing multani mitti with mashed cucumber and rose water. Just be creative to use your favourite fruit according to your skin needs.
Use a home-made toner using cucumber, lemon, coconut or lime.
