Applesauce is not only for children, you can also use it in your homemade mask. Apples help boost the elastin and collagen in your skin and they help keep your skin looking fresh, healthy and young. Rub a
blob of applesauce on your face and let it sit there for a few minutes.
Wash it off. I also like mixing applesauce with some other ingredients
to get all the benefits.

Its not recommended to consume sugar, but you can use it in your homemade face masks. In fact, white sugar is a good exfoliator that is better than any expensive store brands. Dont use it plain though, and
make sure you always combine it with olive oil. Gently massage into your
skin, rinse with lukewarm water and enjoy a soft and fresh skin. This
mask is also great for your whole body.
You might be surprised to see papaya on this list, but it actually has a potent enzyme, papain, which helps stimulate collagen production and remove dead skin cells. Use papaya in your homemade face mask to get

great sources of papain. If you dont have papaya, you can use either
pineapple or cantaloupe instead.
A face mask is one of the easiest ways to rehydrate and soothe your skin, while giving it that beautiful glow that makes you look younger no matter your age. Whats your favorite homemade face mask? Do you use
any of the foods mentioned above in your masks?
