Fruit is healthy. The precept ‘eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day’ reminds us of it often enough. But if you fail consuming your daily ration of greenery, why not turn to beauty products based on fruit waters? They are also good for your skin, even if you cannot eat them. In any case, the cosmetics industry increasingly uses them in its formulas.
Refreshing and slightly acid, fruit waters are spreading to cosmetics, in particular face mists.
