Home made fruit face pack for glowing skin that you must try!!!



Home made fruit face pack for glowing skin

Hey Everyone!!
How often do you apply face packs? I use them twice a week. Once a pimple pack that can consist of sandalwood, neem powder etc and then a home made fruit face pack after a couple of days for the glowing skin.
My inclination towards DIY (Do it yourself)beauty remedies has made me try a lot of fruit face packs so far and recently when someone mailed me regarding some packs made at home that can make their skin glowing.

So, I thought answering them over the E-mail will help only a handful of people whereas hopefully posts can be useful for a lot. Therefore,  decided, I will be keep doing such skin care tips posts every other day or daily if I could squeeze out some time. 
 
Alright then, here we go:

Apple and Milk face pack- "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" very well said. Apples can be great when ingested though their use as a face pack/ mask can also not be neglected. To prepare an apple pack, you have to take half apple, some honey and milk. Now, I will not be telling the proportions as you can adjust the proportion as per the desired consistency and an ideal face pack consistency should be not too runny or too thick but in between.
Take the apple peel off and put it in the mixer with some milk, which can also be added later on. And also the honey. Mix the paste and other two ingredients well and your apple face pack is ready. It will be gooey in consistency!! Only a teaspoonful or even less than that of milk is sufficient else the paste will become too runny and will start dripping off your chin.

Take  a little bit of this paste and apply it like a cream on your clean face with massaging the face very gently with your finger pads. You can do this for around a minute or two. Massaging increases blood circulation and also releases tension!!Yaay! but temporarily!

Now, you may go ahead and use the remaining mixture on your face. It will not get completely dry becoz of the honey in it therefore, you need to leave it for 20 minutes. (Don’t wait for it to get dry completely) 
Rinse it off and notice a glowing skin. Apples contain Vitamin B complex in decent amount and Vit C due to which it helps in scar lightening, skin lightening etc and also mild exfoliation.

Banana and lemon- This fruit being very rich in Phosphorus can be a great face mask and  has the great capability to give you smooth glowing skin within minutes. It’s my tried and tested one, which is really easy to do. All you need to do, is to take a banana and eat half of it and use the other half of the pack, as full banana will be way too more than sufficient and then there will be left overs.
See, with these face packs, you will also get to eat some fruits, if in case, if you are as lazy like me when it comes to eating them!:D So, these are double fayda (Benefit) masks for you!

Now, Mash the banana, they are easy to get mashed unlike the apples and you can very easily mash it with spoon, I use a fork which makes it lot more easier. Then, add a couple of drops of lime juice. 
Please see, if you are not too sensitive to lime juice. If you aren’t then, add half a teaspoonful, if you are, then a couple of drops would be fine. Lime juice can be a good dose of Vitamin C for your skin.
Again, before hopping on to use this as a mask take some, massage for 2 minutes and then apply the rest as a face pack as I suggested earlier.
Give it some time to work, I give it 20 minutes, then rinse with plain water. Not too hot or too cold.
Lemons are known to lighten the skin and fade the acne scars, dark spots etc and banana gives glowing skin and hydrates the face. 
These home made face packs are all skin types which you can customize a bit though suitable for everyone!  
Sensitive skin people: Be gentle while massaging and the amount of lime juice drops you add.

    1. Hi Swati, you can use apple pulp with honey only, if turns out to be thicker then you may add a couple of drops of water. curd can also work though!

    1. When we add lime juice then it masks the smell of banana a bit. Rose water will make it runny dear and it will drip so use honey it will be good with banana. I did it just now.
