Fruit facial is an amazing way to groom yourself. It is the most natural kind of facial with maximum benefits. You must be spending hundreds of dollars a month at your favorite parlour for a facial. Even though you are paying the money, do you think you are getting the worth?
Beauty salons are there to make money from you and make the maximum profit. They don’t care for your skin as much as you do. Do you know if they are using standard quality products on your face? If they are using the same products used by many other people before? washed your hands before putting them on your face? using clean towels? Well, these are the reasons I go for homemade beauty treatments.
My favourite is fruit facial at home. It has a lot of benefits and goodness.

Fruit Facial At Home – Step By Step Tutorial
Step 1. Cleansing
This is the first step in any facial routine. You need to wake up your skin to make it ready for facial. Also, cleansing removes makeup and dirt sitting on your outer epidermis layer. You can use a gentle cleanser to cleanse your face thoroughly or use milk instead as milk is a natural cleanser.
Take some milk in cotton balls and wipe your face with it. Do it for a few minutes and then wash away with lukewarm water. You can also try the oil cleansing method. Take some almond oil or jojoba oil. The technique is similar to the milk cleansing method. Apply almond oil or jojoba oil to your face & neck and then wipe away with warm water.
Step 2. Exfoliation of your face & Neck
Since we are using all-natural ingredients in this facial then why not a homemade natural scrub. My favourite is sugar and honey scrub. You will start liking it from your first application.
- Take 1/2 cup of brown sugar in a bowl
- Add 2-3 tbsp of raw honey
- 1 tbsp of lemon juice to it and mix well
- Now massage your face with this sugar scrub for 3-5 minutes in a circular motion
- Be gentle,
- Wash away with lukewarm water
Sugar scrub is the most effective homemade scrub. Its effectiveness is the same as any cosmetic scrub if not more.
Step 3. Give your face a Massage
The next and essential step is a facial massage. Many people neglect this step, but it provides many benefits to your skin. Massage improves the blood circulation in our face. It enhances the elasticity of facial muscles and provides the glow.
Massage also improves the cell regeneration capacity of our skin. Take a mashed banana or papaya and massage your cheeks, forehead, nose, upper lips, chin, eye area and neck in a circular motion for about 10 minutes.
Step 4: Steam to open up your pores
Steam flushes out the dirt, impurities and excess oil from our face. It opens our pores and thus makes it able to absorb more goodness from the fruit facial. Steam also takes away the blackheads, whiteheads from your face making it clean
Take some water in a pot and boil it. Now let it cool for a few minutes and take light steam. Put your face over the pot from some distance and cover yourself with a towel. Do not bring very intense steam on your face.
Step 5. Fruit facial at home
There are many ways of doing a fruit facial at home. You can use the fruits that are currently available in your home.
Method 1: Take some ripen tomatoes and mash them. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice to it and mix well. Put it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Now, take the facial fruit paste out of the refrigerator and add 1 tbsp of honey to it. Mix well and apply the paste on your face and neck with your fingers. Leave it on for about 20 minutes.
Wash away with lukewarm water and pat dry. This method is suitable for oily skin beauties.
Method 2: This method for fruit facial includes avocados. Take two avocados and take away its skin. Now mash them with a fork in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of honey and some warm water to make a fine paste.
Apply this avocado fruit facial on your face and wash away after 20 minutes.
Method 3: Strawberry and Cherry fruit facial mask. Strawberry and cherries are rich in vitamins like C and A, antioxidants and vital minerals. A great fruit facial mask for anti-ageing and glowing skin.
Put 1/2 cup of strawberries and 1/2 cup cherries in a food processor and make a fine paste. Add 1 tbsp of honey to it and mix well. Now apply this fruit facial mask to all over your face and neck. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wash away with lukewarm water.

Method 5: Kiwi and banana fruit facial pack. This pack improves the collagen-building power of our cells and thus makes us look young. It also brightens dull skin.
Take a mashed kiwi and add mashed banana to it. Mix well and apply the paste to your face and neck. You can also add 1 tbsp of honey to it. Wash away after 20 minutes.
Step 6. Toning and moisturizing
This is the final step of fruit facial. Toning closes your open pores and locks the moisture. You can either take cucumber juice mixed with some lemon juice to tone your skin or take pure rose water in a cotton ball and apply it to your face.
