A good source of vi­ta­min C, potas­sium, fibre, phy­to­chem­i­cals and anti-ox­i­dants, ki­wis stay well in cold stor­age mak­ing them avail­able al­most round the year. An­other vi­ta­min C-rich fruit is the lemon, which helps re­move tox­ins, boost im­mu­nity and al­le­vi­ate di­ges­tive prob­lems. A mix­ture of kiwi and lemon juice ef­fec­tively re­moves dead cells, cleans pores and nour­ishes the skin. “Ki­wis are rich in vi­ta­min C. Lemon juice has nat­u­ral an­tibac­te­rial prop­er­ties that cure acne and pre­vent fur­ther break­outs. Cit­ric acid in the lemon juice acts as a gen­tle skin peel or ex­fo­liant as it re­moves the top layer of dead cells re­sult­ing in a smooth com­plex­ion. Us­ing lemon juice on black­heads re­duces their fre­quency and sever­ity,” says Dr Singh. Mash and blend the flesh of a kiwi with fresh lemon juice to make a scrub. The kiwi seeds should be re­tained in the scrub to en­hance its ef­fec­tive­ness. The scrub is suit­able for all skin types and age groups. The scrub should be ap­plied on the face, left for five min­utes, gen­tly mas­saged and then washed off. The scrub should be not be used on in­flamed skin.
