5 Fruity Homemade Facial Masks to Try

Having an at-home spa day can be fun and rewarding, especially when it’s time to have a facial. Sure, you can always buy the products that you’ll use on your face, but what’s the fun in that? It’s much more fun to make your own facial mask! Here are some of our favorite facial mask recipes that use fresh fruit:

Simple Fruit Mask

This fruit mask recipe is about as simple as can be. To make, all you need to do is puree fresh fruit, such as strawberries, apples, and even bananas. The fruit you choose will depend on your skin type. For dry skin, use bananas, oily or acne prone skin is best with strawberry, and apples offer a great way to balance any skin type. To make the mask easier to blend, you can also mix the puree with about a teaspoon of honey. To make enough for one application, you’ll need to puree about one cup of fresh, diced fruit.

Banana Cleansing Mask

As mentioned above, bananas are especially suitable for dry skin. However, when you mix yogurt with banana, it turns it into a cleansing mask that is suitable for all skin types. Mash 1 small banana with a fork in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add to blender or food processor with 1 teaspoon of full fat yogurt and 1 teaspoon of honey. Pulse until well combined. Smooth over the face and let it set for about 20 minutes before rinsing off.

Fruit Enzyme Acne Mask

Berries are especially good at controlling acne because they contain salicylic acid, which is commonly found in acne treatment products that you can buy in the store. This mask includes both strawberries and cherries, both of which are a good source of helpful salicylic acid. Mash 2 ripe strawberries and 2 ripe cherries together in a small dish using a fork. Smooth onto face and let it set for at least 20 minutes before rinsing off.

Watermelon and Honey Mask

Watermelon is especially good at smoothing out rough skin and making the complexion glow. It works extra well when mixed with a little bit of honey, which can help bring extra moisture to dry skin while also cleansing it. To make, mash one cup of watermelon and mix it with 1 teaspoon of honey. Smooth it on the face and let it set for about 20 minutes before rinsing off.

Apple Pie Mask

This mask, which is reminiscent of apple pie, is great for all skin types. Peel and core 1 apple and cut it into chunks. Add it to a blender or food processor along with 1 teaspoon of honey, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon powdered gingerroot. Pulse until well blended. Smooth on face and leave on for about 20 minutes until rinsing off. Don’t add the cinnamon and ginger if you have sensitive skin.

These fruit masks are both effective and fun to make!
