While Ella Bache Ella Perfect Tomato Exfoliating Jelly has a high proportion of the humble but powerful tomato in it, it also contains cranberry powder which is a natural exfoliant.
So we thought we’d look at the benefits of cranberry on the skin. Thanks to StylishWalks for the heads up.
Helps in the Treatment of Oily Skin:
Being acidic in nature, cranberry juice is perfect for the treatment of oily skin. Make a mixture of cranberry juice, grounded oatmeal, a quarter cup of sugar and olive oil. Mix all the ingredients together and make a mixture. Now apply this cranberry exfoliate on the oily skin, wash off with warm water and wipe gently with a clean towel. It prevents the formation of sebum and makes the skin oil free. You can also mix the juice with honey and apply it o the face, leave for 20 minutes and then wash off the mixture with lukewarm water. This acts as an excellent toner on the skin.
Is a Natural Lip Gloss:
The components of cranberry keep the lips healthy. You can make lip gloss from cranberry by mixing 1 tbsp almond oil, 1 teaspoon each of honey and petroleum jelly and adding 10-12 cranberries to it. Heat the mixture till it starts boiling, mash the cranberries, leave the mixture to cool and then strain it.
Protects Skin and Makes it Healthy:
One of the main components of cranberry juice is vitamin C, which is needed for the formation of hydroxyproline, hydroxylisine and amino acids that are required to produce collagen in the body. This helps in keeping the skin soft, firm and healthy. If you drink cranberry juice regularly in winter, it will protect your skin from getting affected due to harsh weather conditions in winter.
Stops Premature Aging:
There are free radicals present in the atmosphere and many of the products used by you. These cause premature aging of skin, making you older than you really are. By taking the juice of cranberry daily, your skin will look firm, young and beautiful.
Treatment of Acne:
Because of the antiseptic properties of cranberry juice, it works well on pimples and acnes and helps in removing them preventing them from appearing on the skin. To make your skin look bright and fresh, make a facemask by mixing cranberry juice, little honey and powdered orange peel. Apply this paste on your face, leave it for 20 minutes and then wash it off.
Works as a Cleanser on the Skin:
For this you have to first clean your skin with facial steam and apply the pulp of cranberry fruit on your face. Now put a cloth made wet with warm water on the face and leave it for 5 minutes, taking care that the juice does not get in to your eyes. Wipe it off and rinse with water, and you will see your skin as clean as ever.
