My beauty regimen contains many fruits, but here are “9 Fruits for Healthy Skin Care.”

Many of my beauty recipes include then use of fruits either by themselves or in tandem with other natural products. This is primarily because of the fantastic benefits derived from the vitamins and minerals that fruits possess.

The beauty recipes I use and recommend to my clients and some of the celebrities I work with are natural and cost only pennies on the dollar compared to expensive spa treatments. Many of the ingredients we have in our refrigerator or kitchen cupboards.

As always, please seek the advice of your physician, skin care specialist, or dermatologist should there be any adverse reactions to fruit or fruit masks.

Here are 9 Fruits you can’t go wrong with:
