Fruit Mask
Facial Mask Recipes

A fruit mask has been and always will be a big favorite among us do-it-yourself facial mask enthusiasts. They are fresh and fruity and immediately give you the feeling that something is really happening with your skin…and what's left is desert

They can clean, moisturize and tighten your pores with their all natural ingredients. There is a good reason why many of the more exclusive and well known masks are fruit based, their properties are well known and have proven their power

But everyone, and that includes you, can enjoy a relaxing and satisfying natural spa experience right there in your own home with these fruit masks. It's all made clear; these face mask recipes are as simple as ABC, affordable or downright cheap and you probably have the ingredients already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets

Why a fruit mask, what are the benefits of fruit for me…or my skin?

These days fruit masks offer almost endless possibilities with all those fruits being sold. In no time you can treat yourself to a tropical fruity spa-mask right at home

You can try some of the examples below or experiment with your own mix of fresh and fruity ingredients. Choose fruits that exfoliate, like lemon or papaya; fruits that moisturize like banana and avocado or fruits that…well this list could go on and on forever

There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe


Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page

When you have applied the fruit mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water

Facial mask recipes

Basic fruit mask

(For all skin types)

A basic fruit mask is as simple as can be, you pick your fruit of choice, depending on what you want it to do, mash it and apply it straight to your face. We don't think it will become any simpler than this

However ask yourself what you want the fruit mask to accomplish. Does it need to clean, tighten, moisturize or feed your facial skin? Also do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind your ear) to see if there are no surprises

Fruits that are very useful in these simple fruit masks are:

  • Apple
  • Apricot
  • Avocado
  • Banana
  • Grape
  • Mango
  • Melon
  • Nectarine
  • Orange
  • Papaya
  • Peach
  • Pineapple
  • Peach
  • Pear
  • Strawberry
  • Watermelon


These are just to give you an idea, if you look around you will probably find many more fruity options. In some cases you could add a little bit of warmed up extra virgin Olive or organic Honey to enhance the moisturizing and soothing effect on your skin

When you mashed the fruit, spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes

Then wash it off with alternately cold and warm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Papaya, Banana & Avocado fruit mask

(For all skin types)

A tropical fruit facial. It will exfoliate, feed and moisturize your skin…and the leftovers should be eaten as desert


What do you need:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 Papaya


How to do it:

Mash the avocado, banana and papaya into a nice smooth paste

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes

Then wash it off with alternately cold and warm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply amoisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Strawberry, Apple & Cornstarch fruit mask

(For all skin types)

A simple fruit facial that will make your skin light up


What do you need:

  • 1/2 cup ripe Strawberries
  • 1/2 ripe Apple
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch


How to do it:

Core the apple and cut one half in pieces (the other half you eat.) Put this together with the strawberries and the cornstarch in a food processor and blend it into a nice smooth paste that is consistent enough so it will stay on your face without it running off

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 30 minutes

Then wash it off with cold water; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Lemon, Orange & Papaya fruit mask

(For all skin types)

Another tingly fruit mask that will take your dead skin cells off, stimulate and make your skin lighter


What do you need:

  • 3 slices Papaya
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Orange juice


How to do it:

Put the papaya, lemon and orange juice in a food processor and blend it into a nice smooth paste

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15 minutes

Facial mask recipes

Honey, Orange & Banana fruit mask

(For all skin types)

Every single fruit mask so far sounded like very healthy and tasty desert, so does this one. But they all work just as well or even better as a facial mask

Again an exfoliating, stimulating fruit facial that also moisturizes and feeds your skin; and an added bonus is the honey. Honey is a humectant which means it naturally keeps moisture inside, under your skin, exactly where it belongs


What do you need:

  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1/2 tablespoon organic Honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon half and half Cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Orange juice


How to do it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Mash the banana to a pulp and add the orange juice, cream and honey. Blend it into a smooth and uniform substance

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15 minutes

Then wash it off with alternately cold and warm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply amoisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside




Facial mask recipes

Pineapple, Papaya, Mango & Honey fruit mask

(For all skin types)

Is it a fruit salad or a fruit mask? We decided it's both

As a fruit mask it is good for all skin types except sensitive and tender skin. It lightens your skin color a bit, makes the skin soft and shiny, shrinks your pores and stimulates skin recovery. The honey finishes it off by repairing, keeping the moisture inside and making your skin feel as soft and smooth as ever


What do you need:

  • 3 slices fresh Papaya
  • 1 slice fresh Pineapple
  • 2 slices fresh Mango
  • 1/2 tablespoon organic Honey


How to do it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Mash the papaya, mango and pineapple in a food processor and add the honey. Blend it into a smooth and uniform mash

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 20 minutes

Then wash it off with lukewarm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Pomegranate, Almond oil & Honey fruit mask

(For all skin types)

This fruit mask recipe peels your skin and we do not recommend using it on acne skin. Also eat a pomegranate and be surprised by its taste


What do you need:

  • 1/2 Pomegranate
  • 2 teaspoons Almond oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon organic Honey


How to do it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Peel the pomegranate half, cut the fruit in pieces and put these in a bowl or food processor. Add the honey and almond oil. Blend it all into a smooth and uniform paste

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 20 minutes

Then wash it off with lukewarm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside




Facial mask recipes

Watermelon, Papaya, Banana & Cream fruit mask

What do you need:

  • 1/4 small Watermelon
  • 2 slices Papaya

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15 minutes

Then wash it off with cold water; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Oats, Cream, Honey & Raspberry fruit mask

(For all skin types)

The raspberries in this fruit mask refresh and invigorate your skin and will give you a beautiful, healthy glow…it's a team effort though


What do you need:

  • 1/2 cup organic Raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons Cream
  • 2 tablespoons organic Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Oatmeal flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Rose or Lavender essential oil


How to do it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Put the raspberries, cream, honey and essential oil in a blender, keep the oatmeal for now, and blend thoroughly. After this slowly add the oatmeal flour until you have a smooth, sticky paste

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 30 minutes

Then wash it off with warm water and a soft warm wash cloth, end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside





Facial mask recipes

Mint, Avocado, Orange, Honey, Molasses & Chamomile fruit mask

(For all skin types)

A fruit facial that will probably revive even the dullest skin out there


What do you need:

  • 1/4 ripe Avocado
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Orange juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon organic Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chamomile essential oil


How to do it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Skin the avocado and cut the flesh in parts. Put it together with the orange juice, mint, honey, molasses and chamomile oil in a blender and blend thoroughly until you have a smooth and uniform substance

Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear

Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 30-40 minutes

Then wash it off with warm water and a soft warm wash cloth, end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside




Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
