Litchi Benefits for Skin

Litchis are simply amazing for our skin. Whether you are suffering from ugly wrinkles or dry skin, these exotic fruits have a solution for everything.

1. Prevent Signs of Aging

As you grow older, your skin starts to show the first signs of aging. Litchis, when used topically, can help delay their appearance.

You Need

  1. 4-5 litchis, deseeded and peeled

  2. ¼ ripe banana

What You Have To Do

1. Mash the banana and litchis. Mix well so that they form a smooth paste. 2. Gently massage the paste on your face and neck using circular motions. 3. Keep the mask on for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water.

Why This Works

As you age, your body produces more and more free radicals. These free radicals damage your skin and cause wrinkles. Litchis are rich in antioxidants that combine with the free radicals and prevent them from damaging your skin

2. Help Remove Blemishes

Blemishes are the bane of anyone who seeks flawless skin. Applying litchi juice can help fade away the blemishes and marks, leaving you with clear skin.

Spending too much time in the sun can cause redness and blisters. Sunburns can cause pain and irritation, and applying litchi infused with vitamin E can help soothe your inflamed skin.
