When we are feeling poorly inside, our skin is the first to know, and the first to show. It is the skin which shows the results of internal problems. If you have sallow skin, perk it up with some home-made goodness.

When it comes to taking care of your skin, the treatment may be as close as your kitchen. Natural ingredients can be used to help you keep enhance your skin without harsh chemicals. After all, early Americans didn’t have a Walgreen’s or the name brand skin cleansers. They learned about natural remedies.

Sallow skin is skin that is dull looking. Anyone can get it. It lacks the shine and luster that is often seen in healthy skin. To return that luster is to change something about the internal environment that will cause the skin to return to a normal coloring.

The skin is the largest organ of the body. It needs certain vitamins and minerals to keep it doing its job – protecting the internal body. Skin can be oily, dry and flaky or a combination of both. Without the proper nutrition, you can see blotchiness or blemishes from excess oil.



One way to return your skin to a moisturized state is to boost it with topical facial masks. These aren’t just any masks; these are fruit facial masks that anyone can create at home with the right foods. The fruit mask works in combination with activities like exercise and proper eating. Exercise can increase circulation, which in turn increases oxygen consumption and nutrient utilization.

Maybe your skin is not looking its best because it is not being taken care of properly. The mask will work to remove excess oils, retain moisture and remove dead cell layers so healthier skin underneath can shine through.

Best Fruits to Boost Sallow Skin

Boost Sallow Skin with Homemade Fruit Facials
Simply mix any of these with a binder such as yogurt, oatmeal, honey, or egg (or just egg whites), apply to clean skin and leave in place for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.

* Strawberries – They are filled with antioxidants. For sallow skin, the seeds can gently exfoliate the outer layers without being harsh. You can also use raspberries and blackberries.

* Oatmeal – All masks need to have filler that holds the mask together. Oatmeal is good to absorb any excess oil in the skin and soften its feel. Try to find oatmeal that is ground to a fine powder instead of the big rolled oats.

* Bananas – And you wonder why babies have such shiny skin. Bananas are added for help in retaining moisture in your skin.

* Apples – Apples are rich in vitamins A, B, and C and contains malic acid which helps the skin absorb these vitamins. Apple facials can help to reduce or control blemishes via the B vitamins, and can lighten your skin tone because their alpha-hydroxy acids exfoliate the skin. Vitamin A can help to replenish and rejuvinate the outer skin cells, and the vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to combat the aging process. (ref: LiveStrong)

* Cucumber – They are not just for your eyes but your entire face. Cucumbers reduce swelling and puffiness while soothing and cooling your skin.

* Grapes – Grapes, the red variety, in particular, come with loads of beauty and health benefits as they are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants like flavonoids, tannins and resveratrol (1). They are wonderfully effective in fighting free radicals and help in maintaining youthful and glowing skin. Grapes also contain amino acids that help in skin renewal. (ref: StyleCraze)

* Oranges – Oranges have a medium acidity that helps reduce sebum secretion and stimulate circulation. Vitamin E is another benefit which we can take from oranges and it just happens, for this to be the most popular antioxidant used for keeping the skin looking youthful. If you are struggling with the appearance of brown spots, perhaps after a long exposure to the sun, then you should try using a mask for calming the affected area of the skin. The juice from a fresh orange can do wonders in cleansing and refreshing our skin providing locally a concentrated dose of vitamins. (ref: homemademasks.net)

Grape Seed Extract

Antioxidants help to fight free radical damage in the dermis and grape seed extract is one of nature’s best anti-aging antioxidants, and the perfect partner to collagen supplementation. Grape seed extract is especially beneficial because they are such a good source of oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs). OPCs are a type of flavonoid that binds with free oxygen radicals in the human system. They have been shown to have 50 times more antioxidant power than even the well-known abilities of vitamin E.

COLLACTIVE Marine Collagen and Elastin Polypeptides

From the age of 25, your body depletes collagen at approximately 1.5 percent each year. By the time you reach 45, you will have lost 30 percent of your body’s collagen.

COLLACTIVE is a clinically-proven, highly purified, non GMO form of collagen and elastin polypeptides that exist in the same ratio as found in the human dermis – a combination of predominantly type 1 collagen (85 to 90 percent) and type 3 collagen.

How do wrinkles form?

As we get older, the matrix of collagen and elastin in the dermis is damaged by free radicals. As a result of this the matrix shrinks which results in the skin folding…thus creating wrinkles and a need for collagen support. To avoid this happening you must supplement the collagen and elastin matrix by ‘topping up’ these components, PLUS provide potent antioxidants to reduce the damage from free radicals. This is why we have added a potent antioxidant in the form of grape seed extract in addition to the collagen and elastin complex in Skin-Support.
