Here I am sharing Top 10 fruits that make skin glow. These fruits you can both consume and apply on your skin. Yes, you read that right! I am also sharing my all time favorite fruit mask here.
Top 10 Fruits for Glowing Skin | Fruits for Skincare
As mentioned earlier these fruits you can consume and you can even apply on your skin for a glow. But if you are using something like Vitamin A then I suggest you skip to apply the fruit on your skin which is potent in Vitamin C. As this can cause skin irritation. Also, skip it if you have super sensitive skin or dilute it if you still like to apply on your skin. That said let’s check out the list of fruits for face glow!
Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and it is also contains bleaching properties. It helps gets rid of the toxins and effectively cleanses the colon.Thus it is recommended to have warm water with honey and lemon the first thing in the morning. You can consume lemon by in making a lemonade too, adding it your salad or even in your regular tea, etc. To apply on the skin to tackle skin blemishes like acne, acne marks, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone; apply lemon juice on the face. You can also add lemon to your DIY face mask. If you want to learn about more DIY lemon masks then check out this blog post:- DIY Lemon Face Masks
Papaya contains many properties like it is antibacterial antiviral and antifungal. This aids in digestion and also benefits the skin. You may have heard of consuming papaya to cure constipation issues. Papapa can also be applied to the skin by mashing it. It treats dullness and scars. (I do not consume papaya because it disturbs my monthly cycle. So I like to benefit from it by using it as a mask. I have also read that consuming papayas when pregnant is risky. I am not 100% sure though. Whatever it is… Please speak to your family doctor before eating.)
Just like lemons oranges are also potent in vitamin C. We all love to have orange juice. It is sweet, refreshing and very healthy! You can have fresh orange juice any day or apply it on your skin. Just mix some orange juice with gram flour and apply it as a mask. If you have dry skin then add some honey to it. Alternatively, you can also use orange peel powder in your DIY face pack.
This is one of my favorites fruits and I am sure it would be yours too! Very sweet, very watery, and blissfully refreshing! It helps flush out toxins and also improves digestion. And of course, you can also apply it on your skin to fight free radicals. To make a pack add some watermelon juice to fuller’s earth and aloe vera gel for clear and glowing skin. (Since its the season we are consuming a bowl of watermelons daily!)
This fruit is rich in healthy fats so for all weight watches you can consume avocados guilty free. It also contains dietary fibers hence it helps the colon. For the skin, it improves its elasticity and speeds up healing. You can consume avocados as itself or in smoothies or salads. To make a skin mask mash avocados and directly apply it on your skin. Avocados can also be added to your regular face pack or even in a DIY hair mask.
This is very cooling internally and also on external application. It is rich in water content just like watermelons! For puffy eyes, you can keep a slice of cucumber each on eyes. To make a face pack add cucumber juice to fullers earth or gram flour. You can also simply apply grated cucumber to achieve glowing skin. (These days I am having cucumber as my main salad along with meals every day!)
Since its the season of mangoes, I am sure all of you are already eating mangoes. It not only aids in digestion just like the above fruits but also rejuvenates the skin. Who doesn’t love a glass of fresh mango juice or smoothie?! (Personally I like to consume mango slices along with my meal like a salad. If that even makes sense! 😛 ) You can apply a mashed mango directly to your skin while gently massaging your skin.
Here comes my favorite fruit face mask. It is potent is antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Along with this it also helps with bowel movements. You can consume it as it is or in a fruit salad or in a smoothie. To achieve instant glowing skin mash some banana and apply it directly on the skin. You can also rub the peel of the banana on your acne scars to lighten them. Banana peel can also be rubbed on your teeth to naturally whiten them.

If you are suffering from acne due to constipation or other bowel problems then you should try consuming prune juice. Just drink prune juice the first thing in the morning to aid in proper bowel movement. Alternatively, you can also add it your fruit juice or smoothie. To use it on the skin add some prune juice to aloe vera gel and rose water to treat dullness and impart a healthy glow to your skin.
We all are familiar with the saying ” An apple a day keeps a doctor away”. Because it is one of the super foods and contains antioxidant properties too. Thus it also fights free radicals on the skin. Just like other fruits in this list even apple can be both consumed and applied on the skin. I suggest you eat apple along with its peel since its peel is also rich in antioxidants. You can either consume them as it or in juice form or mixed with other cut fruits as a fruit salad. To apply it on the skin grate an apple and add some honey to it. Use this as a mask for glowing skin.
So these are some of the fruits to eat for glowing skin. You can eat them whenever you would like to. But please don’t start applying them all together on your skin! Like my personal favorite out of these is a DIY banana mask. So you pick one or two which works best for you. Along with consuming and topically applying these fruits on your skin, I suggest you have a well-balanced diet. And stay physically active to stay fit. 🙂
