Kiwi Face Mask For Skin Brightening

Next time you hear people saying that it costs a huge sum to look beautiful, just tell them to check their fruit basket! Yes, the secret lies there.

With a wide variety of fruits in it, your fruit basket is all you need for glowing and radiant skin. Those oranges, bananas, apples, melons and almost every other fruit that you can name are a boon to your beauty regime. Not to forget in this list is kiwi, one incredible fruit with a host of nutrients that imparts a beautiful glow to your skin.

A leading source of vitamin C, kiwi offers the following benefits to your skin:
Rejuvenates skin through cell regeneration: Kiwi contains several nutrients, especially vitamins C and E as well as various antioxidants that are essential for boosting and rejuvenating the health of your skin. The fruit helps moisturize and hydrate your skin and stimulate the production and regeneration of skin cells, thus making it flexible and youthful.

Adds a healthy glow to your skin:

The antioxidant content, especially vitamin C, works as a natural bleach to lighten and brighten your skin.

Keeps skin firm: 

Being loaded with vitamin C, kiwi also helps keep your skin supple and firm as it aids the production of collagen in the skin.

Fights free radicals: 

Kiwi contains a number of antioxidants that help neutralize the effects of free radicals in the skin, thus accelerating the process of regeneration and slowing the signs of aging.

Fights acne:

Kiwi contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that help fight acne and blemishes as well as clearing up pores to prevent further breakouts.


The black seeds in kiwi fruit help in exfoliating dead skin cells from the skin, thus offering flawless and smooth skin.
Homemade Kiwi Face Mask

While kiwi alone has multiple benefits to offer, a blend with banana and yogurt forms a bomb combination to work wonders on your skin.


Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamins and water content that help nourish, moisturize and hydrate the skin, making it soft and supple.


Yogurt is rich in lactic acid that works as an exfoliant to remove dead cells from the skin, fading away blemishes, reducing pigmentation and accelerating the growth of new skin cells.

The kiwi-banana-yogurt face mask works amazingly well for dry to normal skin and helps hydrate and soften your skin.
