This incredible fruit, which is also known as Pitaya, is the fruit of a cactus plant that grows in tropical areas of Latin America and Asia. Even though we have to admit, it doesn’t taste that great, we promise it’ll work wonders for your beauty regime. And although it was a little messy, the benefits were HUGE!

Here’re some of the awesome things it can do:

For your skin:

Dragon fruit is amazing for acne-prone skin and when applied topically, the high vitamin C content helps to reduce redness and inflammation by boosting your skin’s blood flow. Because it’s an amazing source of vitamin b6, eating Dragon Fruit will help regulate your hormone levels thereby minimizing breakouts.

Easy DIY

Making a mask is super easy. Just blend dragon fruit into a paste and apply it directly onto your skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash off with warm water.

For Sunburn

Another benefit is dragon fruit’s super high vitamin E and C content, and by eating it you can help protect your skin from the damage of UV rays (but that doesn’t mean you can skip the SPF). It’s full of proteins and skin-repairing enzymes too, so it’ll also speed up the healing process while hydrating your skin. 

For the ultimate soothing DIY lotion

Blend the meat of half a Dragon Fruit with 3 tablespoons of yogurt and let it sit on your skin for 15 minutes, then wash it off with cool water.

The Ultimate Dragon Fruit Face mask 

This super nourishing mask includes honey, which is nourishing and has antibacterial properties . Just mix the puree of half a dragon fruit with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin oil and 2 tablespoons of honey. Apply the mix to cleansed skin and wash it off 15 minutes later with warm water.

We hope you enjoyed reading and will definitely try these amazing dragon fruit.
