The Beauty Trend: Fruit-Infused Skincare

Fruit can be pretty powerful when it comes to effective skincare – so it is any wonder more and more skincare brands are incorporating them into their products? From a glow-boosting cleanser to a viral hydrating overnight lip mask, here are a few of our favourite products that use fruit as their hero ingredient.

Watermelon Brightening Serum, £16 | Milk Makeup

The Hero Ingredient: Watermelon

MILK’s smartly packaged balm-stick is designed to instantly replenish and nourish skin. The hero ingredient – watermelon – is known for its moisturising capabilities, but the product is also boosted with prickly pear for extra nourishment. Offering a powerful blend of vitamins A, C, and E, the complex formula also contains a selection neutralising free radicals to protect the skin barrier, reduce uneven skin tone and brighten the complexion.

Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm, £29 | Glow Recipe

The Hero Ingredient: Papaya

Promoting better glow and a smoother skin tone, this lightweight, creamy balm gently exfoliates and removes make-up at the same time. Once it’s massaged onto damp skin, the exfoliators get to work unclogging blocked pores, while vitamin C-rich papaya sweeps away dirt and removes dead skin cells for better tone and texture. Finally, vitamin A boosts elasticity and bounce.

Skincare Pineapple Enzyme Glow Gommage Peel, £8 | Revolution

The Hero Ingredient: Pineapple

Brimming with pore-purifying goodness, this fruit-infused peel works hard to fade dark spots, scars and pigmentation. It also addresses sun damage, leaving the skin looking more even and smoother post-use. Apply a generous amount to clean, dry skin, and gently massage it in using circular motions – you’ll soon see dead skin is sloughed away to reveal a luminous finish underneath.

Lip Sleeping Mask, £19 | Laniege

The Fruit Hero: Berries 

This lip mask has gone viral for a reason. With a thick and balmy texture, it softens and soothes thanks to a helpful dose of berry-derived vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Use it overnight to deeply condition or during the day as a quick fix. Alternatively, if you’re someone who suffers with chronically dry lips, use it as hydrating lip balm to keep them soft and supple on the go.
