Fruit remedies and cosmetics are a lot way better than those we can buy at drugstores or supermarkets. Remember that every commercial remedy is based on the original properties of natural foods and ingredients, and it?s obvious that using natural things it?s better. So try to include these fruits instead of buying expensive treatments.
too many fruits to use in our skin? that’s amazing, I was wondering if a mixture made of many of them could help summarizing all the benefits? or it can be spoiled?
Thanks so much!! What great information! I’ve been concerned for quite some time about the chemicals that are used in commercial cosmetic products, and consequently I haven’t applied makeup for quite some time. I do, however, use face creams for extra moisture, and I’ve been looking for alteratives that are natural.
