No More Oily Skin With These Easy Fruit Face Packs

Bananas - A boon for Oily Skin

Bananas are undoubtedly the best natural solution for the treatment of oily skin. All the beneficial nutrients in this yummy fruit are great for people who have oily skin. You need to pick up ripe bananas for all these recipes. If you wish to add a teaspoon of orange juice to these packs/scrubs you're free to do so (citrus fruits contain certain acids that help in reducing excess oil). You can expect your skin to feel fresh and glowing (glow, not the awful oil- shine) after applying these easy home recipes. If your skin is prone to acne then applying these packs twice a week can help in reducing and preventing acne breakouts.

Here are the various ways in which you can use bananas to get rid of oily skin.

Banana + Milk + Oats, Face Scrub

Here's what you've got to do - Mash a ripe banana in a bowl and add a tablespoon of milk to it. To make it a scrub, take two tablespoons of oats and mix it in the paste.

Be Berry Ready!

Berries are great healing sources for oily skin. You can make the following face packs using either blueberries or strawberries (I'll write strawberries to avoid inconvenience while reading); both of these savory berries make amazing ingredients for face packs for oily skin. Not just that, berries are considered one of the best anti-aging fruits.

Strawberry + Lime Juice Face Pack

Here's what you've got to do - Take four to five strawberries and mash them up in a bowl, add two tablespoons of lime juice to the mash and mix it well.

Let it say on for about fifteen to twenty minutes (your wish!) and wash it off with normal water.

As a result, you'll feel a refreshing boost on your skin, and guess what? Regular application of this face pack can also help in reducing the appearance of dark circles around your beautiful eyes.

The beneficial qualities of oranges help in eliminating excess oil, dead cells and blemishes from your skin. This awesome fruit also gives your face a magical glow, reduce tan, and improve the overall texture of your skin. Take some dry orange peel and beat or crush it into a powder, this powder can be used in making all kinds of face packs later on. Oranges are so great for your skin that by simply squeezing out some orange juice in a cup and massaging it on your face in gentle circular motion (wash it off with lukewarm water) can do the job!
