Today’s beauty enthusiasts tend to go a more natural route when it comes to their skin-care routine. More and more, we’re shying away from using products that contain harmful chemicals and carcinogen. Instead, we aim to use products that contain ingredients that we can actually pronounce.
Well, how much more natural can it get than using products made from foods you can find in your own pantry and refrigerator?
We rounded up some of the best creams, cleansers, and the like that are derived from things you probably have in your kitchen right now. From your favorite fruits and veggies to caffeinated beverages of choice and superfoods you had no idea were hiding on your spice rack (hello, turmeric!), the options for natural alternatives are many.
These 15 skin care must-haves are chock-full of beautifying properties, whether they’re anti-aging, intensely nourishing, or deeply cleansing. Click through the gallery, below, to check out our favorite picks.
(Editor's Note: While these products may contain your favorite foods, we don’t recommend you try eating them.)
