You know avocado is healthy to eat–and it’s good for your skin, too. It’s a good source of vitamin E, which is anti-inflammatory for skin. The healthy fats in avocado help to hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Honey is a natural humectant, locking moisture into the skin.

Is it breakfast, or skin care? Bananas are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that help to nourish and protect the skin. And those oats from breakfast are gentle exfoliants, helping to remove dead skin cells, revealing a brighter complexion.

Cucumbers are 95% water, so it’s no wonder they’re hydrating for the skin. They’re also cooling and refreshing, especially right out of the fridge. This gentle face mask for glowing skin also has soothing aloe vera. Pro tip: Place slices of cucumber over your eyes while the mask is on to reduce puffiness and promote relaxation.

You likely already know about turmeric’s anti-inflammatory power, which is as good for the skin as it is for your insides. Yogurt is a natural source of lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate the skin and make pores appear smaller. Yogurt’s probiotics may also help to balance the skin’s microbiome.

Humble egg whites can make a fantastic addition to a face mask for glowing skin. Egg whites can help to absorb excess oil, boost hydration, and temporarily plump skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines. A bit of lemon adds vitamin C and antibacterial power. Don’t toss the egg yolks: Add them to your morning scramble.
