Do-It-Yourself : Apple Facemasks


 

An apple a day keeps the doctor away but if the doctor is handsome keep the apple away. Sounds familiar?! 

 

Even if the doctor is handsome don't keep the apple away because apple has many vitamins, antioxidants plus fibres which are all good for healthy skin as well as our body. 

 

Apple contains vitamins A, B, C and anti-oxidants which are all good for skin. Apples are a rich source of various phytochemicals including flavonoids. We all know the wide use of apple cider vinegar for skin and hair problems. Let's see some DIYs of apple powder for beauty addicts.

 

 Why use apple powder instead of apple pulp or juice?

 Powder is easier to mix and gives maximum effect. Pulp or apple sauce becomes runny and makes application tacky.
