Fruit Salad Body Mask

This recipe for our Fruit Salad Body Mask reads as if you’re making a smoothie for the skin — and you are  — but for good reason. Each of the fruits have a specific purpose.

  • Pineapple contains bromeliad, a protein-digestive enzyme which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt. It also counteracts histamines, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is a mild astringent
  • Grapes are rich in PCOs which provide protection against harmful UV rays, and, are anti-oxidants.
  • Bananas have loads of vitamins, calcium and essential nutrients which keep the skin smooth and soft
  • Kiwi is high in vitamin C and has enzymatic properties
  • Honeydew is both soothing and hydrating
