Facials at the spa are a luxury that not many women can get regularly. But, there’s no need to go to the spa to get regular facials. That gets expensive and time-consuming. Instead, supplement “real” facials” by treating your skin at home to facials using everyday foods that you can find in your fridge or pantry. Talk about au naturale skincare!

Here’s a list of foods to smear all over your face for a beautiful, wrinkle-fighting, brightening and youth-enabling effect.

  1. BANANAS Bananas have the ability to moisturize and soften your skin. And at the cost of less than a $1 per banana, I’d say that’s cost-effective skincare! Take one banana, mash it in a bowl to create a smooth consistency, then apply all over your face for up to 20 minutes. Wash off and enjoy how soft and hydrated your skin feels.
  2. YOGURT This dairy treat helps cleanse and tighten pores, leaving skin brighter and more even. Apply plain yogurt to your face for 20 minutes, relax and wash off.
  3. LEMON A citrus wonder fruit, lemon can help exfoliate your skin. Squeeze some lemon juice onto a cotton ball and wipe all over your face. Or, for moisturizing and exfoliating, combine lemon juice with a carrier oil like almond oil or olive oil. Apply for a few minutes, then wipe off with a paper towel.
  4. MAYONNAISE Mayo helps sooth and soften irritated skin. Just apply to your face, relax and wash off after 20 minutes. Your skin will look less red and irritated. Instead, say hello to soft, clean skin.
  5. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR Though you may balk at the idea of using vinegar on your skin, rest assured that a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar combined with two cups of water makes a effective toner that cleanses and tightens the skin. Wash your face with your cleanser, then rinse with vinegar.
