Beauty is skin deep and lies in the eyes of the beholder. But many people do spend a fortune in their quest for becoming beautiful and getting a radiant skin. Little do they forget that nature has always provided us with a solution – however desperate the times appear! The same can be said about beauty too. Instead of spending bucket loads of money to get the right cosmetics, take a peep into your fruit basket. You would see that the everyday fruits such as apple, banana, cherries, etc., can be beneficial to you rather than just being a nutrient supplement. Almost half of these fruits can be used as a best alternative for cosmetics. One among them is the Kiwi fruit.
Kiwis are known to have a high content of Vitamin C on par with oranges. They are also high in minerals and are an excellent medium for regulating blood pressure and helps in fighting infections. They also do have some properties that regenerate and repair body tissues. They assist in preventing aging naturally and hence are widely used in face packs to get that desired glow and radiance to an otherwise dull and wrinkled face. Loaded with antioxidants, Kiwi fruits are very beneficial in fighting many skin related conditions such as acne and dead skin. Let us have a look at some of the face packs that use Kiwi to get the desired results.
5 Homemade Kiwi Facial Packs For Getting That Glowing And Ravishing Look:
1.Kiwi And Almond Face Pack:
Almonds are a natural source of Vitamin E. This, when combined with the Kiwi fruit gives across unmatched benefits in a face mask. To make them, soak a handful of almonds in water and leave them overnight. The next day, drain the water and crush them. If needed use a blender for grinding them. Scoop out the kiwi fruit (including the seeds) using a spoon and add it to the crushed almond. Now mix them both and form a fine thick paste. Apply this paste evenly on your face and let it grip for 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off with water and pat dry to get that ravishing facial skin.
2. Kiwi and Yoghurt Face Pack:
Many experts believe that Kiwi works best with yogurt. Many spas and beauty parlors endorse upon this fact. To make the pack, scoop out the kiwi pulp from the fruit using a spoon and mix it with one to two tablespoon of yogurt. Apply this paste evenly on your face and let it grip for 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off with water and pat dry to get that brightened glowing skin.
3. Kiwi and Lemon Face Pack:
This type of mask is generally used for people with oily skin. Lemons are natural sources of bleachers. The lemon extracts are known to pull out the oily substances from face and skin. To make the pack, scoop out the kiwi pulp from the fruit with a spoon and mix it with lemon juice. Make a paste so that it is not watery. Now apply this face pack evenly on your facial skin. Let it grip for about 20 minutes. Then using water wash your face and pat dry to get that oil free youthful skin.
4. Kiwi and Egg Face Pack:
The egg has natural skin tightening properties and is loaded with nutrients. This type of pack is used more when the cleansing of the skin is needed. To make this pack, scoop out the contents of the kiwi fruit and mix it with a few drops of almond oil. Add egg yolk to this mixture and stir well. Make sure that the contents are properly mixed. Apply this pack evenly on your face (Remember that this type of pack can be a little watery due to the presence of egg yolk). Keep it on for about 15 minutes and wash your face with water. Pat your face dry to get that bountiful dirt free skin in minutes.
5. Kiwi and Banana Face Pack:
This is one type of pack that can be used irrespective of the skin type and is widely popular. Bananas are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and together with Kiwi, they offer one of the best cleansing product available naturally. To make this mixture, mash up a banana. To this, add the scooped out kiwi fruit. If required, add a teaspoon of yogurt to this mixture and mix well. Apply this mask evenly on your face and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash your face once it sets and pat dry for getting that amazing facial glow and texture on your skin.
TIP: It is very much better if you use cold water instead of hot water to wash your face off the mask. Also, pat dry your face with a soft cloth or cotton and do not use force to dry your skin. Do not use soap to cleanse the skin off the mask as it can cause some dryness to the tissues.
