Fruit benefits: For a healthy glowing skin

Hey Everyone..

This is a post about benefits of a fruit for a healthy skin

We all know that having a fruit juice helps building up a glowing complexion  and better health. But using fresh fruit pulp for your skin helps maintaining a healthy, supple and radiant skin. Fruit facials are popular from decades but they are now replaced by chemical treatments and expensive products as people find them an instant yet permanent solution for their skin. Yes they are effective but not healthy and permanent as it contains lot of toxins which is NOT GOOD for your skin. What better way to pamper your skin than with pure stuff which is free of toxins and not harmful to your skin? 

Here are some fruits that can really help you get amazing results.

Banana: This is one fruit that's abundantly available in India all through the year. We know it's a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium and helps reduce menstrual cramps. The effect of banana on skin too is not something that can be ignored. Bananas are rich in vitamin A, B and E and hence works as an anti-aging agent. A fresh mashed banana facial can do wonders for your skin.

Lemon: Lemon juice is an important ingredient in most Indian recipes. This is also a fruit of all seasons and almost always finds place on your kitchen shelf or refrigerator. With its vitamin C content, its juice will keep your skin beautiful. A glass of warm water with a tsp of honey and a dash of lemon juice on an empty stomach every morning is not only good for maintaining weight but also a great skin cleanser. With its astringent properties, it can be used to lighten the skin tone and also diminish acne scars. Rub the inside of a lemon peel on your elbow remove dark spots. Mix lemon and honey and use it as a natural bleach on your skin.

Apple: An apple a day keeps the doctor away is cliched, but its health benefits are undisputable. Apple's antioxidant property prevents cell and tissue damage. Studies by nutritionists have shown that apples contain abundant amounts of elastin and collagen that help keep the skin young. Applying a mixture of mashed apple, honey, rose water and oatmeal can act as a great exfoliating mask on your skin.

Orange: Rich in vitamin C that improves skin texture. Like apple, orange too contains collagen that slows skin aging process. Rub the insides of orange on your skin to tighten the skin. Oranges can be dried and powdered and used as a natural scrub. Like lemon, oranges too help clear skin blemishes.

Papaya: The benefits of this fruit on skin have perhaps been talked about since the time of our ancestors. Papaya is rich in antioxidants and contain a special enzyme called papain that can kill dead cells and cure skin impurities. A glass of papaya milk or just applying the flesh of papaya on your skin can do wonders to your skin.

Musk Melon: Musk Melon usually called as 'kharbuja' in India is another great fruit for your skin. This fruit is excellent for cooling down during the summer heat. It is also extremely filling and refreshing. Muskmelon has a high level of nutrition, which contributes to many health benefits. The fruit contains minerals like potassium, sodium and magnesium and vitamin A, B and C. It helps soothing sun burns during summers. You can apply a pulp of musk melon directly over the burnt areas or rub a small piece on your skin can help you soothe down your skin as well as toning it up.
