Having a sensitive skin I have suffered from acne for a very long time. Even after teenage acne never stopped bothering me. It may be new beauty products or the monthly period or the changing weather or the body heat I always ended up with a pimple on my face.
I couldn’t even realize what is going wrong and what needs to be done to avoid pimples. More than that my face charm was completely taken by the Dark spots as a result of Acne. Though I found solution to lighten dark spots, acne has never left me.
Finally, I stopped everything and started trying home remedies. As part of my daily skin routine, I exfoliated the dead skin cells and then applied a moisturizer to keep my dry skin hydrated.
And you know what, that worked! Slowly my acne was cured and dark spots started lightening. I don’t say that my problem got solved completely and I got flawless skin.
My skin type itself is prone to acne. I still get a pimple occasionally, but it is not problematic now. My face has been clearer than ever.
I decided to provide vitamins to my face skin and hence started fruit face pack routine. Initially while eating fruits I used to apply part of it on my face.
As a result, my skin really looked fresh and clean. Then I experimented with adding naturally available things like honey, turmeric along with fruits and results were absolutely fantastic.

Not only people with Acne & dark spots these fruit face packs can also be used by everyone to look fresher and avoid aging skin problems.
