Fruit & Your Face ♥



The best thing for your skin, especially the skin on your face, is something 100% natural.  You need something gentle and effective, something that won't irritate your skin, and something that can help prevent skin issues in the future.  You also need something full of vitamins, minerals, and natural moisturizing properties.

It's really (really!) hard to find products that are completely natural, with nothing man-made in them at all.  But there's one thing you can always count on to help revive that natural beauty inside of you -- fruit!

There are plenty of ways to use fresh fruit to get great skin right at home, and you don't need anything else other than what's probably already sitting in your cupboards and fridge.  Here I'll make a quick and simple list of fruits and which skin types & conditions they are best used for:



Acne
Lemons
Apples
Strawberries
Grapefruit
Kiwi


Dry Skin
Bananas
Guava
Olives
Melons


Discoloration / Dark Circles
Tomatoes
Grapes
Orange
Tangerine


Wrinkles / Sagging
Any Citrus fruit
Papayas
Blueberries
Pineapples


These fruits all contain antioxidant properties, and also can help naturally cleanse and refresh your skin.  Another reason these fruits are great for your skin's health is because they contain alpha-hydroxy acids.  Find out why AHA's are good for your skin here.  For more information on how these fruits and others are helpful for your skin, check out this article from DivaVillage.

I have rosacea that gets kind of bad from time to time. My mom used to grind and smash up vine grapes with the seeds still in them, and we would use it as a sort of spot treatment.

Good post! : )
