Yes! The collagen in our skin is what gives it strength and elasticity. It plays a very important role in replacing dead skin cells with new healthy cells. However, with age, the body produces less and less collagen, and that’s key in the development of wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Kiwi has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from damaging free radicals. The presence of vitamin E in kiwi reduces skin irritation and expedites healing. Its black seeds contain omega-3 alpha hydroxy acids, which stops sebum production and delays wrinkles caused by aging.

Using something as good as this ingredient in homemade face masks can do wonders for your skin. Read on and try out our luscious 6 DIY kiwi face masks to lighten and brighten your skin.
