Litchi, can now be directly used on your skin and hair as a part of your natural body care routine. As the fruit comes with an unedible seed, you have to use the pulp alone in its juice form. However, litchi juice alone might not create a difference and hence, you should know the right way of using it.
How to use litchi highly depends on what is the purpose you are looking at. If for the hair the way you'd apply litchi would be different than how you apply it on the skin. It is important to know the difference for the two to get the desired result.
From the following you can pick your own way of using litchi for noticeable changes. So, have a look.

Litchi + Honey
