Fruits for Your Face
Have you ever thought what fruits can do for your skin? If not, a simple fruit face pack can do wonders to maintain and make your skin look young and give you a healthy natural glow.
The best thing about fruit packs is that you don't have to invest in all those expensive brands. You can make your own fruit packs at home and have smooth, supple skin always.
You get good treatments at your salon, but if you want a quick fix therapy, you can make some packs at home too.
Farzana Surti, Senior Beauty Therapist, Nalini & Yasmin salon gives some simple and easy to make fruit packs.
If you have oily skin, firstly use a tomato slice on your face and rinse off with water. This works like a fresh astringent and closes the pores. Orange removes the impurities caused by greasiness. It also gives a glow without looking greasy.
Take half a teaspoon of orange juice, add four to five drops of lime juice, add half a teaspoon of multani mitti (Fullers Earth), half a teaspoon of sandalwood powder, a few drops of rosewater and mix it well.
Refrigerate it for a little while if you wish. Mix well, apply it and keep it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with water.
Banana is good for your skin as it acts as a moisturiser and softens the skin. Mash a small banana, add half teaspoon of sandalwood powder, add six to seven drops of honey, add half a teaspoon of malai and a pinch of haldi powder.
Haldi brightens your skin. Mix well, apply and keep it on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse it off with plain water.
If you have this skin type, your T-zone is usually oily and the C-zone is dry. This means, your forehead and cheeks are dry and the rest is oily. So here, you can use the oily skin pack for the portion that is oily and the dry skin pack for the part that is dry.
If you have normal or 'fresh skin', pomegranate will work well for you. Take half teaspoon of pomegranate juice; use a little piece of banana, add half a teaspoon of sweet lime, a pinch of haldi powder, a pinch of multani mitti and half a teaspoon of sandalwood powder.
Mix well and apply. Keep it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with plain water. If you are unable to get pomegranate, you can use cucumber instead.
