We all love flavour. A good dish should have a mix of flavours beautifully blended together into a harmonious taste that pleases the palate. Although your skin doesn't have taste buds, it also enjoys the benefits of food in the form of skin treatments that are good enough to eat.
The sour taste in some fruit is caused by the presence of acids, and some of these natural acids can be good for the skin. Yes, some acids, but not all, so don't just grab whatever sour fruit you can find and put it on your face. Fruit such as peaches, lemons, star fruits, tamarinds, pineapples and papayas contain natural alpha hydroxy acids, which are widely used in skin brightening treatments.
Try: Garnier Light Intensive 3in1 Whitening Essence Mask contains pure lemon essence which helps remove dead skin cells gently, revealing fresher, brighter skin underneath.
