The skin is the largest part of the human body and needs to be taken good care in order to always look good. The main reason for dull skin is a lack of oxygen and blood in the skin, making it appear weary and lifeless.
To give your skin a little more life, here are 10 amazing fruit packs worth testing out.
1. Lemon and Potato
Lemon is packed with natural bleaching agents that are helpful in cleansing the skin, removing dirt, dead skin cells and impurities. It also helps in getting rid of suntan effectively.
A combination of lemon and potato juice helps make the best face pack for fairness and tan removal and is super simple to make. Using one potato and one lemon, peel and grate the potatoes to turn it into a smooth pulp. Squeeze out juice from lemon and add it to the pulp mix well and apply on clean face. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then wash off with water.
2. Banana and Almond Oil
This is one of the easiest and most cost-effective homemade face packs for dull skin. The ripe banana is mixed with almond oil.
Being rich in vitamin C and B 6, banana helps in maintaining skin elasticity, suppleness and improving skin complexion. This mixture of banana and almond oil helps in lightening the dull skin and protects it against harmful UV rays of the sun and improves blood circulation throughout the skin. Apply the mixture and wash after 20 minutes.
3. Tomato and Cucumber
Tomato can be used effectively in a fairness face pack to enhance the skin tone naturally. The antioxidant lycopene present in tomato acts as a natural sunscreen and soothes the skin against sunburn. This helps in adding a natural glow to dull lifeskin.
The cucumber juice and pulp act as an effective natural remedy for improving the complexion by removing pigmentation blemishes and scars. It also lightens dark circles around the eyes.
4. Strawberry and Milk
These berries can be added to with milk and used to enlighten the dull skin complexion and add a healthy, youthful glow to the skin.
A truly fresh faced DY wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of strawberries. Strawberries make the face so delicious that you may even want to lick it off. The mixture of strawberry and raw milk works wonders on dull skin: it is just applied to the skin and cleansed after 20 minutes.
5. Papaya and Honey
Ripe papaya is rich in the enzyme papain that helps skin renewal. It is loaded with vitamins A, C and E that helps in moisturizing dull skin and protecting it against infections. This mixture of papaya and honey acts effectively as a natural sunscreen and reduces signs of skin aging; such as freckles and age spots.
Grape is a fruit used to improve the dull skin to be fairer and wrinkle free. Grapes are full of antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage and help stimulate collagen and elastin tissue.
Thoroughly mix the grape juice, lemon juice, and wheat flour (or a gluten-free flour if you are celiac!) and slather it on your skin.
This is packed with skin lightening vitamins that leave the dull skin naturally fairer glowing, ageless and smooth. A mixture of apple, green tea water, and rice powder helps prevent acne and pimples.
This spiky fruit is one of the best kept secrets for flawless skin. Containing an exfoliating enzyme known as bromelain, it gives your skin a natural fairness and youthful glow.
Mix pineapple and lemon juice then apply it on a clean face to help bleach facial hair and bestow a youthful glow.
Mangos are loaded with powerful antioxidants that help to promote healthy luminescent skin naturally. A mixture of mango, milk and mud clay powder helps prevent over-production of melanin in the skin and lightens any hyperpigmentation you may have.
Being the most popular skin lightening fruit in the world, oranges help beautify skin in so many different ways. A mixture of orange juice, corn flour, and milk will help you fight wrinkles, smooth your skin and give your skin a gorgeous glow.
