Many people are misled into thinking that the more expensive a product, the more useful it will be for your skin. This is not always the case for skin care products. Paying hundreds for dermatologist visits and celebrity endorsed products are not always your best bet. Majority of these products promote “natural” ingredients, when in reality they are full of toxins and chemicals. The only way to ensure your products are truly natural is to make them right in your own kitchen. The following are all ingredients that are easy to acquire and won’t break your bank account.
Honey is an excellent cleanser for all skin types. It makes skin smooth and soft, acting as a moisturizer with added anti-aging effects. Honey has the amazing ability to absorb and retain moisture, keeping your skin well-hydrated throughout your busy day. When looking for honey, make sure you purchase it in raw or organic form. These types have better benefits as they are unfiltered and not processed.

Yogurt is considered to be a “multitasker” among natural skin care ingredients. Not only does it help fight acne and moisturize your skin, it has the ability to reduce sunburn and discoloration. According to Organic Authority, the lactic acid, a natural alpha hydroxy acid, in the yogurt helps smooth and exfoliate skin. The same lactic acid also helps to dissolve dead skin and tighten pores. Similar to honey, make sure you look for a plain, organic type to gain all the beneficial values.
