Importance of Fruits for our skin:

For getting vigorous and attractive skin fruits are one of the most important items. They not only make our skin beautiful but also make it strong from inside. You won’t make your skin beautiful without making your body healthy. So from that point of view fruits should be utilized in two forms- Externally and Internally. Externally means several fruits pack can be used for skin. Internally means you need to have some good fruits on a daily basis to make your skin and body strong and healthy.

Fruits contain acids, which are great for skin as because they untie the stickiness between the dead skin cells and the new cells. Thus results in a smooth and soft skin. According to our skin type, we should choose the fruit masks, which are as follows:

1. For normal skin: take one peach. Cook until it become soft. Then mash it with the backside of a fork and add a teaspoon of honey to it. Mix it well and finally add oatmeal until it becomes thick. Apply it on to the skin and after 10 minutes rinse well with water.

To have a blemish free skin, I use a tomato mask, which is really helpful. At first, chopped a ripe tomato. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of oatmeal. To make the paste thick, you can even add a bit of more oatmeal and then apply the mask especially on the blemishes skin areas, like forehead, cheeks and chin. After 10 minutes, scrub it off with cotton, soaked in lukewarm water.
