Fun Summer Fruit Facial Recipes

Here are some fun summer fruit facials that you can make at home with under 5 ingredients. They will leave your skin looking smooth and radiant.

Fresh Strawberry Facial:

Strawberries make an excellent skin softening facial mask. Strawberries contain salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, allowing it to absorb moisture more efficiently, as well as help heal blemishes.

1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon milk or plain yogurt
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Blend all the ingredients in the food processor to make a smooth paste. Spread mask over your face and neck and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry. You can refrigerate any leftover mask. Will last up to a week.

Papaya Facial:

The papaya's natural fruit acids and enzymes will remove dead skin cells which will leave your skin looking younger and smoother. Papaya contains a natural enzyme called papain. The greener the papaya the higher the enzyme content.

Caution: Do not leave mask on your face for more than 5 minutes and rinse well because if left on to long it can become drying.

2 tablespoons mashed papaya
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

Mix ingredients together and apply to face and neck. Let sit for 5 minutes and rinse with cool water and moisturize well.
