Anushka Sharma’s skin is the stuff of fairytales. It’s always radiating a glow which makes me think that she probably uses high-tech facials and a multi-step skincare routine, but no. The actress is in fact a minimalist when it comes to skincare and the only seemingly ‘extra’ thing she does is use this fruit on her face for clear skin.
And it isn’t any fancy exotic fruit either. The fruit that Anushka uses is a breakfast staple and easily available in your local market. So what is this mystery fruit and how does Anushka like to use it in her skincare routine? Here’s everything you need to know.
What Is Anushka’s Mystery Fruit For Clear Skin?
Aside from having a very simple skincare routine with OTC products, Anushka sometimes indulges her skin with DIYs using all natural ingredients. In an interview, she said, “Mashed banana is very good for your face and is a great cleanser.”
That’s quite a weird tip but it obviously has amazing results seeing as Anushka’s skin is so pristine. Turns out banana has tons of anti ageing benefits and it’s also a boon for acne prone skin.
Benefits Of Banana For Skin
Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, C and E, among other nutrients. Mashed bananas applied on the skin can hydrate the cells, and also boost collagen production so that makes skin firmer. The vitamins in this fruit also help clear up the skin and prevent acne. Another popular hack involves rubbing banana peels directly on the skin to fade acne scars and dark spots, and brighten skin. This fruit is especially good for dry and acne-prone skin types. Anushka Sharma uses mashed bananas as a face cleanser and these are probably the reasons why.
How To Use Anushka Sharma’s DIY Fruit Cleanser?
Anushka said that she mashes the bananas and then uses the paste as a face wash. This is a pretty straightforward hack that will need only half a banana. Use a fork to mash up a half banana, apply the paste on your face and let it sit for a few seconds. Then rinse off with warm water.
I usually like to mix a teaspoon of honey with my mashed banana paste and then apply it on my skin for 15 minutes like a mask and then rinse it off.
Banana-infused skincare is something you need to try to understand what all the rage is about. The Vilvah Cream Face Wash with Banana & Wheat Protein is a great product to start with if you’re skeptical about applying the fruit directly.
The Vedic Line Banana Pulp Mask is also a good choice to reap the benefits of the fruit through a face mask.
Using bananas on your skin is one of the simplest ways to attain a radiant complexion like Anushka Sharma.
