This exotic fruit is a real vitamin bomb that has a beneficial effect on our skin.
Kiwi is often referred to as the fruit of health. And if viewed from a cosmetic point of view, the potassium contained in it maintains proper hydration of the skin, calcium promotes its regeneration, and zinc slows down the aging process.
In addition, kiwi has an impressive amount of vitamins C, E, fatty acids, and antioxidants. Separately, it should be noted that kiwi seeds act as a natural exfoliator. It’s no surprise that this miracle fruit is a popular ingredient in many cosmetics, creams, lip balms, gels, and even depilatory patches. It is also great that kiwi masks are suitable for all skin types. So, in particular, it improves the condition of oily and acne skin, moisturises dry, softens tired and restores the elasticity of aging. Thanks to kiwi, you can have a flawless and radiant complexion.
Try the amazing power of kiwi with homemade masks
And the easiest option is to simply use already almost ripe fruit. Simply mash the peeled kiwi fruit with a fork and gently apply it all over your face in a circular motion. (If you already feel a slight itch at first, this is a sign that the mask is working.) After 15 minutes, rinse with warm water or wipe your skin with a non-alcoholic toner. At the end of the procedure, apply a moisturiser to your face. Regular use of such mask will improve the overall condition of the skin, make it soft and elastic.
But if you want to enhance its effect, combine it with other products. All Kiwi masks should be used 1-2 times per week depending on your skin condition. For dry skin only once per week.
2 tbsp of natural yoghurt
Peel the kiwi, remove the hard core, cut into small pieces and mash with the fork. Mix the mash with natural yogurt and keep it on your face for 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and apply a moisturiser similar to the previous ritual. Repeat the course of treatment once a week. The skin will become smoother and more elastic.
By the way, you can enhance the nutritional effect of the product by adding half a banana to the recipe and, if desired, doubling the portion of kiwi.
¼ tbsp of lemon juice
1 kiwi fruit
Peel the kiwi, chop and mix with lemon juice and egg. When the ingredients are smooth, apply it all over your face. After 5-10 minutes, wash with warm water and lightly pat with your fingers, massage in the moisturiser.

5 ml (1 tbsp) of skimmed milk
5 ml honey
1 drop of lavender essential oil
