We all want great skin, but expensive face creams, moisturizers and other store-bought skin-care products can contain harsh ingredients, stripping away our skin’s natural oils and making us even more dependent on such products. Thankfully, many household staples such as oatmeal and honey are brimming with nutrients beneficial for skin. So next time you’re tempted to buy an expensive facial mask or body scrub, raid your pantry—you might just find some excellent foods for skin. These four skin-improving foods can soothe, nourish and protect. Use them in our simple, cost-effective DIY beauty treatments that take only minutes to make.
Conventional personal-care products contain an assortment of chemicals that have been linked to health problems ranging from weight gain to cancer risk. Stay healthy and save money by making your own body, hair care and beauty products free of chemical preservatives. Making body scrubs, toners, hair rinses and floral waters can be as simple as combining an assortment of natural ingredients; while lotions, salves, lotions, deodorants and soap require a little more time and care.
