10 Best Kiwifruit Face Masks You Must Try May 8, 2018

This brown, little hairy egg-shaped fruit doesn’t look very promising from the outside. But believe me, don’t go by the exterior! Once you dig in, you will be introduced to a world of juicy delight! Kiwifruit, or kiwi, is a tangy, watery, soft, and fleshy fruit that adds a unique twist to your salads, salsa, smoothies, and face packs.

Wait! What? Face packs? Don’t be so surprised! This seemingly humble looking fruit has immense benefits for your skin. Read on.

Kiwi Fruit Mask Benefits

1. High In Vitamin C

Kiwi is jam-packed with Vitamin C and phytochemicals along with vitamin E, carotenoids, and phenolics. Kiwi is an excellent source of antioxidants that protect your cells from oxidative exposure and rejuvenate them (1).

2. Boosts Collagen Development

Collagen is the compound that helps maintain your skin’s elasticity. Also, it keeps your skin soft and supple and prevents dryness. Vitamin C contained in Kiwi supports the collagen density in your skin (2).

3. Helps Fight Acne And Other Inflammation

Kiwi has anti-inflammatory properties, and that’s why it prevents acne, rashes, and other inflammations (3).

It’s a nutrient-dense super fruit. Now, here are the ways you can include this magic fruit in your daily skin care routine.

Tips To Consider Before Applying Kiwi Face Mask Or Packs

  1. Before you even start, check whether your skin is allergic to kiwi or not. Rub a small part of the fruit on the inner part of your elbow to see if your skin can tolerate the fruit.
  2. Before you apply any of the packs, remove all traces of makeup and steam your face. In case you don’t have the time to take steam, just splash warm water on your skin and pat it dry. This opens up the pores and lets your skin soak in all the goodness of the face packs.
  3. In case you have excess face pack left in your bowl, store it in the fridge. But remember to use it within a couple of days.
