Despite knowing the benefits of fresh fruits on skin, how much do we actually try to apply and use these? Well, consumption of fruits alone will not help improve your skin texture.
Fruits, in the form of masks, packs or even toners, need to be applied on the skin for that everlasting glow.
Fruit-based skin toners can be prepared at home following the right steps and processes. These fruits, being store-houses of vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates, react on the skin, boosting its quality and texture
Ensure you get fresh fruits to prepare these toners at home. Unlike other fruit face packs or masks, there is no expiry tag for fruit-based toners. These fruit toners can be prepared at home and stored in the refrigerator for future use as well.
