Tired of trying market-based synthetic face packs that promise you glowing, smooth and radiant skin? However, a great alternative to your expensive beauty products in the market is fruit face packs which are quite effective, have no side effects and are cost- efficient as well. The homemade fruit face pack is natural and easy to make and gives you clear, smooth and glowing skin with regular use.

Here are some fruit face packs that help you achieve a beautiful glowing skin that you always wanted.

Mango
Mango is rich in Vitamins A and C, E and a host of skin rejuvenating formulas. It contains antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory effects on your skin. Mango softens, nourishes and brightens the skin. Take 3 tablespoons of mango pulp and mix with one teaspoon of ground almonds, oats and lemon juice. Apply on the face, avoiding the lips and area around the eyes. Wash off after 20 to 30 minutes.

Take slices of ripe mango. Mash it until it is smooth and add one teaspoon of multani mitti (fuller’s earth) to make a thick, smooth paste. Apply this paste your skin around face and neck and wash it off after 30 minutes to get supple and glowing skin.

Ripe papaya
Papaya has so many benefits that it used to be called “the food of the angels.” It is a rich source of anti- oxidants, like Vitamins A, C and B, folate and pantothenic acid, as well as minerals like potassium,
copper, and magnesium. Papaya contains the enzyme papain which helps to soften and remove dead skin cells, making the skin clearer and brighter. Mix 3 tea- spoons of ripe papaya with 3 tea- spoons of oats and one teaspoon each of curd and honey. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes and wash off with water. It softens the skin and adds a glow.

Alternatively, mash a few slices of ripe papaya until it is smooth. Add a few drops of honey and lemon juice to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the face for 30 minutes and wash it off with fresh clean water.

Take two pieces of papaya and one tablespoon of honey. Blend the papaya into a smooth pulp and add the honey to it. Once you have gotten a thick consistency, apply the mixture on the face and wash it off with cold water after 30 minutes and apply moisturiser for glowing, radiant and supple skin.
Mix one tablespoon of grated apples, ripe papaya pulp and mashed banana. Add oats to make a mixture that does not drip. Apply it on the face, avoid- ing the lips and area around the eyes. Leave it on for half an hour. Wash off with plain water. It not only adds glow but also cleanses the skin and removes tan.

Banana
Banana is one of the richest sources of potassium and also contains Vitamin C and B6, silica,
potassium, and other nutrients. It is extremely nourishing for the skin, not only due to its vitamin content but also because potassium helps to soften the skin. Banana helps clear hyperpigmentation and protects the skin from sun damage. It is a perfect ingredient for dry and sensitive skin and tightens and tones the skin. The banana pulp can be added to the egg white and one teaspoon honey. Leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash it off. Almond oil may also be added to the pack, especially during the dry winter season.

Apple
Apple contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals. It is a wonderful skin toner, helps to tighten the skin and stimulate blood circulation to the skin surface. Apple contains vitamin C that helps build collagen. It contains powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that protect your skin from UV damage and ageing

Apple also contains fruit acids, which have a powerful cleansing effect on the skin, removing dead skin cells. This helps to brighten the skin and gradually clear away blemishes, like dark spots. It helps to achieve healthy, glowing and youthful skin.

Raw apple pulp or apple juice can be applied on the skin daily and then washed off after 20 minutes. Grated apple can be added to face masks. Mix oats with curd, honey and apple pulp or grated apple into a paste. Apply on the face and wash it off after 20 to 30 minutes.

Pomegranate
Pomegranate is a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. It’s excellent for skincare, as it helps to moisturise the skin. The pomegranate also helps to improve the skin’s moisture retention ability too. Used regularly on the face, it can remove tan, lighten skin colour and also brighten the skin.

Pomegranate juice can be mixed with lemon juice in equal quantities and applied on the face. Rinse
off after 20 minutes with water. Pomegranate peel can be dried and powdered and used in face packs. Mix two teaspoons each pomegranate peel powder and multani mitti with enough rose water to make a paste. Apply on the face, avoiding the lips and area around the eyes. Wash off when it dries.

Grapefruit
Both pink and red grapefruit are said to be rich in Vitamin A, carotene and lycopene. They are also rich in Vitamins C and A, as well as potassium and magnesium. Additionally, they contain B- Complex Vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, copper and phosphorus.

Like other citrus fruits, grape- fruit also has a cleansing and toning effect on the skin. It is particularly good for oily and pimple-prone skin. It reduces oiliness and also helps to reduce tan with time.
