Skin-brightening Papaya Facial
Papaya contains papain, an enzyme that is very effective for skin whitening and healing. Use this to clear up irritations and to brighten lifeless skin. All you need to do is to slice a papaya, remove the seeds, then use a knife to carve the papaya off the skin. Then, run the slices through a blender. Then, mix powdered gelatin and a little water and boil. Add the papaya juice when it reaches the desired texture. Mix thoroughly. Cool the mixture in the refrigerator (this should take about 20 minutes). Your homemade papaya facial is ready! Leave it on the skin for 15 minutes before rinsing with tepid water.
h5>Anti-aging Tomato facial
Tomatoes are rich in anti-oxidants. That’s why this tomato facial is excellent for reversing sun damage. Do this after you’ve spent a long day in the sun! All you need is a ripe tomato, run through a food processor or blender until it’s a chunky paste. (Stop before it becomes a juice!) Rub this on your skin, leaving it on for about 20 minutes. Wash your face with cold water.
Moisturizing Avocado facial
Avocado is an excellent moisturizer. Mash one up in a blender, then add an egg white and honey. The egg white will draw out impurities in the skin, and the honey will help clear acne problems and other skin breakouts. You will get a fine paste. Slather this on to your face and leave for about 20 minutes. Thanks to the egg white, it will dry up. Then you can peel it off, leaving new and radiant skin, which has been made extra supple because of the avocado.
Purifying Orange and lemon facial
Orange and lemon can help control oiliness and also even out the skin tone. (Read our article on natural ways to remove acne scars.) All you need to do is to squeeze these two fruits into a medium bowl. Add powdered gelatin, and then cook over low heat until completely mixed. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. You can also add egg yolk, which can help moisturize the skin. Rub it into your skin, and leave or about 25 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water.
