Simple fruit masks that you can try at home

For a basic fruit mask of any kind, just mash fruit and apply straight to the face! It’s as simple as that. However, make sure to choose fruit according to your skin type and desired results.

Natural-Home-Remedies-For-Life and Simply the Best Creations offers a list of recipes for different skin types.

Here are some easy recipes we’ve taken from eHow, do give them a go!

Banana & Honey Facial Mask

eHow also offers other versions of the banana mask, playing around with ingredients such as jojoba, wheat germ, oatmeal and vitamin E oil.

You will need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

Mash the ingredients together and apply to a cleansed face and neck area. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. The banana and honey have a firming and moisturizing effect on the skin, as well as a light exfoliation of dead skin cells.

Papaya & Honey Facial Mask – Whitening & Anti-Aging

The papain enzyme in a papaya effectively whitens the skin whilst vitamin E, C and beta-carotene are three powerful antioxidants that help control premature aging. Rubbing the white pulp of a raw papaya on your skin also helps to remove pimples, reduce fine lines and reduce wrinkles.

You will need:

  • ½ cup of ripe papaya
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

Mash the papaya with a fork, making sure it does not get too runny, and mix in the honey. Spread the mask onto your face and leave for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing off.

Apple and Peach Facial Mask

You will need:

  • 1 peach
  • 1 apple

Cut the apple into 1-inch chunks, removing the core as you do so, and cut the peach into slices, removing the pit. Place the chopped fruit into a blender, blending until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl, and add ¼ cup of honey, before applying the mixture on your face for 10 minutes.

Have fun!
