In my personal opinion, nothing beats all natural options. Fruits are organic and natural that help solve skin issues. For years, I’ve had problem with acne. I had breakout and I almost tried everything, but going to the derma clinic had never been really helpful. Good thing I learned about fruits in solving my issue.
No wonder why most products have ingredients made of natural materials. You can see the label of lotions with strawberries, soaps with lemon scent, moisturizers with coconut oil, etc. That’s because they have vitamins and minerals that help regain the natural beauty of skin.
But it’s better if you use fruits directly on skin. It also assures that no animal is harm when you do that. Keep in mind that some skin care products have animal fats in it, and know you must never use them at any cost. That being said, here are best choices of fruits you can apply on your skin on a daily basis.
#1 – Bananas
Banana is rich in fiber and other essential nutrients, which make it a good snack or dessert to eat. But this is not only useful to nourish your skin when you take them in. It also works on skin when you mash some slices and apply on your face and neck.
The vitamins A, B, and E have anti-aging properties. This means banana is certainly a good natural moisturizer to use for your skin.
The soft texture of this yellow fruit is another good news. You can easily make a paste using a spoon or a blender. Then put some on your facial skin. It’s better if you add some honey, coconut oil, or olive oil. Make sure to keep the paste on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes before you rinse with warm water.
#2 – Papaya
In tropical countries, especially Asia, the supply of papaya is not a problem. In other places, this may be one of the most expensive fruits to buy, because they are imported. Regardless, it’s a good pick for your face. It is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and papain, which is a unique enzyme that you can only find in this fruit. That compound is the reason why papaya is excellent for skin.
Always choose ripe papayas. You peel, slice, and mash to create a facial mask or paste. Apply onto the face, neck, and other areas for 20 minutes. Scrub after and rinse.
# 3 – Lemons
Loaded with vitamin C, lemon is a fruit that acts as a bleaching agent. This means it’s a good solution to treat scar due to acne and prevent spots, such as fine lines and wrinkles. It also makes a smoother, healthier skin. Those who have oily skin should resort to this. It works for dry skin as well, because it hydrates it.
You may apply directly on skin or drink a juice of it mixed with water. Either way, your skin becomes healthier and smoother over time.
#4 – Oranges
There’s also enough vitamin C you can get from oranges. It helps moisturize skin, treats blemishes, removes scars, and slows down aging process.
#5 – Apples
This fruit can also work as an anti-aging agent for skin. The numerous antioxidants in it help repair damaged cells and tissues, leaving skin much healthier, more youthful, and smoother. Hence, a good and cheaper option to eradicate wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes.
If not applied, eat a whole apple a day. You can also make juice that you can drink. If you both apply on skin and consume in, the result you expect is more effective and quicker to process.
#6 – Avocados
Lastly, avocado makes it to this list because of its great amount of antioxidants and vitamins, such as A, B2, B3, and E. In fact, it’s considered as among the healthiest foods on earth.
Like banana, you can easily make a paste. Just mash in a bowl, add a teaspoon of honey or 2 tablespoons of milk. Apply onto the face and other skin. Leave it on for 20 minutes at least before rinsing.
Skin is very sensitive, and has an important role in protecting the body from diseases and infections. It must remain beautiful and youthful. That indicates a healthy skin, but doesn’t require expensive cosmetics. Just take some of the best fruits on the planet!
It’s best if you both eat and apply these fruits to have healthier skin. If you eat slices of these fruits today and apply on skin before showering or sleeping, and maintain that regularly, then you can anticipate your skin to be more glowing within a few weeks.
