We all know that fruit is one of the healthiest foods that you can eat, since it’s loaded with nutrients that are beneficial to your health and well being. However, did you know that fruit is also a great ingredient when it comes to making beauty masks? There are many types of facial beauty masks that can be purchased today and all of them promise younger and smoother skin. Unfortunately, you can never be sure if the ingredients that are used in these facial masks are really all natural. Even though there are brands that have been proven to be organic, they are often too expensive for the average buyer. Learning how to make a fruit facial mask allows you to save money while being assured that you are using only natural ingredients.
Preparing Your Supplies
Secure a blender or a food processor which you will use to make the fruit puree. Gather several fruits of your choice. It is recommended that you select fruits that are rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries and pomegranates. Other ingredients that you will need are egg whites, honey and a large bowl to put the mixture in.
Making the Fruit Beauty Mask
Start by carefully washing the fruits that you’ve selected. If you’ve chosen fruits that have tough skin, you may also peel them first. Afterward, puree the fruits using a blender or food processor. Pour the pureed fruit into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix one egg white and a tablespoon of honey. Pour this mixture into the fruit puree and stir until you have a thick, pasty substance. If you suffer from dry skin, you can also add a bit of olive oil for a moisturizing effect. Apply the mask to your face and leave on for about half an hour. Store leftovers in sealed glass jars and place them in the refrigerator.
