As a kid, momma always pestered me to eat my greens, Which I hated and i am sure all of you did too.
How many times have our mothers said “Apple cheeks, rosy lips?. We most definitely didn’t take them seriously then. Then we grew up. And that lovely baby skin gave way to skin problems and irritation. And I am also sure most of us would have asked ourselves why didn’t we just listen to our mother, just as i did?! Fortunately, you haven’t lost that baby skin texture forever.
Here are 8 simple face packs with fruits that will ensure that you regain them.
But before we dive into preparation of homemade fruit face packs, here are few tips to make the process easier:
Use fruit packs on cleaned, exfoliated skin.
Blend the fruit well enough so it’s pulpy.
Relax while you have it on your face, because it slides off being all slippery.
Wear not-so-favorite-clothes as your mom will hate staining.
Some fruit masks are too slippery to stay on face. In such cases, add some grounded oats to get a good consistency. This holds good for any runny consistency.
Always extend the mask up to your neck. It gets the same exposure like your facial skin.
