Beauty in your fridge

We have covered some great all-natural treatments for acne, combination and normal skin. Here are some great finds for the dry skin girls:
  • Avocados
They are great for moisturizing and rejuvenating because they are packed with monounsaturated fats and vitamins B and E. Also rich in vitamin C, avocados stimulate collagen and reduce some signs of aging.

For a surge of moisture, mix one tablespoon of ripe avocado, add half a teaspoon of honey and mix. Stir in a small amount of almond meal until creamy. Be sure to apply to a clean, make-up free face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water and finish with a rinse of vinegar pH balancer.

  • Bananas
This high in potassium fruit has the same benefits of an avocado. But the banana gives the skin a long lasting healthy glow.

Mash a banana and add two teaspoons of yogurt. Mix until creamy and apply immediately to the skin. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, then remove it with a spatula and rinse.

Do you have any favorite natural remedies I missed?


  1. These are awesome and so easy! I almost always have bananas around. For the banana recipe, you can add a small amount of oats and use it as a scrub too! The oats have a nice, smooth feel to them and they do a little exfoliation job too. It's nice! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for the comment, Donna! It's making me hungry!:-)
