BEAUTY-FRUTTIThere are many ways of looking after yourself, and we are forever being presented with fantastic new revolutionary treatments; however, today we want to talk about something as straight-forward and traditional as the benefits different kinds of fruit can provide for our skin.
The Chinese peach is an ancient symbol of immortality, renowned for its rejuvenating properties. Rich in carotene, it helps prevent acne and keeps skin moisturised with the added bonus of a delicious scent.
The apricot is another member of the rose family, which when applied to the face leaves dry and wrinkled skin feeling nourished and smoother, and whose oil is also ideal for sensitive skin thanks to its soothing properties.
Moving onto citrus fruit, grapefruit contains large amounts of vitamin C, a great antioxidant which encourages collagen production, resulting in luminous and toned skin. Grapefruit is also frequently used to combat cellulite.
Last, but not least, we come to our own favourite – the lemon – which, apart from its anti-inflammatory and repairing properties, is an excellent cleanser which removes superficial dirt and excess oil thus preventing blocked pores.
To keep skin in good condition it is essential to cleanse, moisturise and protect it, and our treatments based on such familiar and readily available fruit can help you to achieve this.
At BEST of MALLORCA we recommend you try Ecologic by Linda Nicolau, a beauty centre which specialises in natural and organic cosmetics.
Meanwhile, we suggest you try this home-made face masque for oily skin:Blend one cup of natural yoghurt, one carrot, the juice of one lemon and one grapefruit until you have a smooth mixture. Apply to the face and leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
