Everybody loves a good bit of fruit, whether they like apples, or they're more of a grapefruit person. You might stick to everyday grapes or branch out into exotic papayas, but either way a nice piece of fruit can make you feel great. But we usually stick to eating fruit, either raw or cooked. It's meant to taste good and be a (sometimes) healthy snack. Fruit has some weird hidden uses though, and people aren't afraid to experiment with it.
People just love putting fruit on their face. Some fruit can be good for the skin, especially if you need a moisturizing face mask. Mashing up an avocado and smearing it over your face might not sound very pleasant, but the oils it contains could leave you with smooth and silky skin. Fruit is great for a face scrub too - people have long been mixing lemon juice and sugar for a natural scrub. Other fruits you can make face masks from include tomato, watermelon and strawberries. In fact, you can mash just about anything up and apply it to your face, but it doesn't mean it will do anything.

Weight loss fruits are often things you've never heard of before, but don't be afraid to try new things.

It has natural antibacterial properties and smells good too. You can use grapefruit juice as a cleaner if you you're trying to avoid products full of chemicals.
You've probably seen people drinking cocktails from coconuts, but people also use melon halves as serving bowls. They look nice, but they're only temporary. Still, you could use the melon shell to flavor your drink, soup or whatever it is you're serving. Watermelons are great to fill with fruit because they're usually quite big.
