Making your own skin care potions gives you the power to make precisely the right product for your skin. Plus, many of our favorite products are made with items we can find on local supermarket shelves, even if there’s not a Whole Foods in sight. There are many humble ingredients seen in kitchens across America that make fantastic facial treatments. To lift, hydrate, heal or invigorate your skin, there is likely something in your own cupboard.
The Banana Split—Mash one medium banana with a tablespoon of plain yogurt and a dollop of honey. Mix well and slather onto your face and neck. Then let it sit for 10-15 minutes. The honey acts as a natural acne remedy, the banana leaves your skin velvety soft, and the yogurt cleanses and tightens pores.
Vinegar Tonic—Mixing a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water and using it as a toner is a tradition as old as skincare. Don’t ditch your pricey toners immediately, first give it a try to see if your skin responds well.
Eggs Any Style—The incredible, edible egg (TM) is incredible for more than the ways we can eat it, but also the effects it has different types of skin. For dry skin, separate, beat, and apply yolks to your face and the rich oils will leave your skin luminous and refreshed. For oily skin separate, beat, and apply the albumin (egg white) to your face to lift, tighten, and tone. For normal skin, beat a whole egg and apply. You’ll get velvety hydration and a refreshing toner.
