Fruit pack

Alrighty.. let's get started. I have combination skin, which is to say dry in some areas and oily in others. Skin, basically is our body's biggest organ. Keeping the face blemish less and smooth really is a challenge. A number of factors can affect this such as not eating the right food, too much stress, not using the right products,etc. I am a huge fan of Ayurvedic face packs as they are all natural and can be easily made at home. One that I tried out is with bananas, turmeric, oatmeal, honey, and a bit of lemon. I added the lemon to the mixture as lemon is a little acidic and it will help with pimples. The turmeric lightens hair on the face and gives it a nice glow.Basically mix all of them together and leave it on your face for about 15 minutes then wash it off. For a moisturizer I use grape seed oil mixed with a little bit of jojoba oil. Both of these are extremely light weight and penetrate easily into the skin. It does not feel like you have a layer on top of your skin as it completely absorbs it. I have been using these oils to moisturize my face daily for the last 5 months and they have been working wonders. I would probably not want to go back to any creams of that sort. Adding this fruit pack really gives your skin a light boost and a soft texture to it. Enjoy and let me know how it works!
