I’m sure you already know that you should eat fruit to stay healthy but have you been putting your fruit to work on the outside of your body, too? All it takes is a little fruity love to keep skin radiant. Puréed fruits, like cherries, grapefruits, papaya, and pineapple, can actually remove dead skin cells on your face by dissolving them. It’s a way to gently exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. It’s time to put those natural acids and fruit enzymes to work for you. Remember to do a small patch test to see how you skin reacts, even if it’s a fruit that you normally devour.

The real beauty of fruity homemade skin renewal masks is that you probably have the ingredients right there. They’re simple to make and can save a load of cash.

3 Fruity Beauty Masks You Can Make At Home

1. Papaya Facial

  • 1 payaya mashed (The desired ripeness of the papaya depends on your skin type—the less ripe the papaya, the stronger the enzymes. For sensitive skin, pick a fruit that’s a little riper.)


Cut the papaya in half and scoop out the seeds. Put them to the side to use in a shake or other recipe.Rub the inner mashed flesh of the papaya against your face. Skip the area around your eyes and lips since they’re a little more sensitive and it can burn in sensitive area. Leave the juice on your face for 5–10 minutes.  This mask can slide so try to lay down. Rinse and check out your radiant, refreshed skin.

Pineapple Face Peel Mask

  • 1/2 pineapple peeled, cored, and mashed
  • 1 tablespoon finely ground oatmeal or almond meal

Instructions: Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Spread it over your face. Again, avoid going close to the delicate skin around the eyes. Relax for about 10 minutes, leaving the mask on your face. Rinse and admire.

Super Simple Orange Renewal Mask

  • 1 orange
Instructions:  Patch test, people! Cut the orange in half and scoop out most of the inside, leaving just a bit of flesh on the peel. Rub the flesh side against your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes so it can work its magic. Rinse.

Oranges have the added bonus of removing dead skin cells and boosting skin cell renewal. Get mixing and get your glow on by using your fruit inside and out!
