Yup you read right! Did you know you can use pear as a facial? Well, I guess you learn something new everyday. 

For my dry skin brothers and sisters out there, pear is a great way to combat dry skin. Pears are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, copper, and vitamin K; they do wonders for your skin. oh not forgetting they also have antioxidants, which help to repair damage done by free radicals (ok, this post wasn’t meant to be a lesson on the scientific benefits of a pear, but it’s good to know this stuff!) 

Normally, I would do this at the beginning of the autumn season since my skin likes to act up early. For me, if I don’t prepare my skin for the autumn and winter months, it will feel like I have climbed Mount Everest – no joke!

Just so you have an idea of how dry my skin is, every morning my lips are tight and dry. Seriously, it’s so difficult to manage, especially in the winter; lip treatments are close to my heart because they’re the only product that keep my lips in check. 

Ok, back to the facial: how does it work? 


Pear Facial Mask
1 ripe pear
½ teaspoon of honey
1 tablespoon of heavy cream

Start by peeling and coring the pear. Cut the pear into small pieces and place them in a small dish. Using a fork, mash the pear fruit into a smooth paste. Next, add the honey and heavy cream. Spread the mixture evenly over your face and neck. Let it sit on the skin for 15 minutes and then rinse the pear facial mask off with warm water. Follow up with a splash of cool water and pat dry with a clean towel.

I can’t promise you Beyonce’s beautiful skin, but it will help your skin in the winter months if done regularly. If you have oily skin then replace pear with strawberries!
