Recently, Rakul Preet Singh revealed the secret to her glowing skin too on her YouTube channel. It's so simple that you’d want to try it right away!
The actress uses just three ingredients to get glowing and supple skin, but the best part about this mask is that you can apply it to your face and eat it too! Rakul prepares a mixture of banana, honey and lime juice in this fun video. She uses one mashed banana, half lime juice and a little bit of honey to make a super nourishing face mask. She also revealed the benefits of each of these ingredients. Here’s how the ingredients in the mask can benefit your skin.
Beauty benefits of banana
Rich in potassium, banana keeps the skin hydrated and is an ideal ingredient for girls with dry skin type. Packed with vitamins A and B, using bananas can help tackle dark spots and signs of aging, respectively.
Beauty benefits of honey
is a kitchen staple that contains antibacterial properties, which makes it great for treating and preventing acne. Packed with antioxidants and moisturizing properties, it can slow down signs of aging and help moisturise dry skin to make it look hydrated and glowy.
Beauty benefits of lemon juice
Lemon contains skin lightening and brightening properties, it tackles dark spots and uneven skin tone, while keeping skin hydrated and soft. However, we recommend not using lemon directly on your skin as it is highly acidic in nature and can cause permanent damage to the skin.
But you can reap the beauty benefits of this lemon by including a lemon-based skincare product like the St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub in your skincare routine. Packed with the goodness of lemon and Mandarin orange, this scrub polishes away dullness to reveal radiant-looking skin.
