Repeat the process after a day or two if the pimple is not drying up and healing. So, what are you waiting for? Take a look at these 10 fruit pulps to treat summer acne:


Coconut Pulp

Coconut is rich in vitamin E, one of the best elements for the skin. Therefore, if your skin seems dry and itchy with acne, all you need to do is to massage your face with the pulp of the coconut and when dry, rinse it off with some coconut water.


Orange Pulp

Oranges are considered to be a skin saviour. If you massage the pulp of an orange directly on a pimple, you will see a scab over it the next day. Likewise, even the juice pressed out from the orange skin and applied on to the face will help to improve your complexion.


Strawberry Pulp

Since strawberries are high in vitamin C, they provide an extra care to the skin if you have pimples. All you need to do is to apply the pulp of fresh strawberries on the pimple and allow it to dry. When dry, rinse your face with rose water to tone your skin.


Grape Pulp

Grapes are extremely beneficial in treating acne. Grind to pulp a handful of grapes along with the skin. Now, apply this fresh pulp on the acne and let it dry. Rinse with some cold water and re-apply the pulp again. Repeat this treatment thrice in a day for 2 days and see those pimples disappear.


Watermelon Pulp

Watermelon pulp is used on the skin to treat acne. The pulp contains properties that will dry out the acne infection and prevent it from spreading to the other areas on the skin too. Use the pulp on the skin twice in a week to get rid of zits.


Kiwi Pulp

Kiwi is a tropical and exotic fruit that is highly beneficial for the skin. Apply the pulp on the zit and leave it to dry. After 15 minutes, peel the pulp from the face and rinse the area with some cold milk.


Papaya Pulp

Papaya is good for the skin, do you know why? Experts state that when papaya is applied on to the acne, the pus from the pimple base gets released and the pathogen gets killed, due to the acidic levels present in the papaya fruit. Therefore, give yourself a papaya facial for beautiful and flawless-looking skin.


Banana Pulp

Banana is rich in potassium and this element nourishes the skin if it is dry. In a bowl, add the pulp of three ripe bananas and one tablespoon of cold milk. Now, mix the content of these ingredients to form a paste. Apply the pulp as a facial and allow it to dry. After 15 minutes, rinse your face with warm water.


Pineapple Pulp

Pineapple contains bromelain that is a good element for treating infected and damaged skin. Rinse your face with water and then apply the thick pulp of the pineapple on the acne. When the pulp dries and falls out, rinse your face with rose water.


Guava Pulp

Guava is rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that are good for the skin. Massage the pulp of this green fruit on the skin without the seeds. Allow it to dry for about 15 minutes and then rinse it off with some cold water. Do note that while massaging the pulp on the skin, don't pop open the pimples and do go easy on the infected area.
