2. Almond- Sugar Facial Scrub

In general, sugar scrubs are beneficial for your face as they remove dead skin, restore clogged pores, are a natural humectant, and are excellent exfoliators.

The one we are talking about is a bit special. You will need a quarter cup of superfine sugar, two tablespoons of honey, and two tablespoons of almond oil.

Mix all the ingredients in a small jar and blend them properly. However, make sure that you do not dissolve all of the sugar.

This scrub will not only help you to renew your skin but also make your face look great.

3. Apricot

So sweet, so delicious, however, rarely do people know that apricot offers terrific skin benefits.

Having apricots in your diet can help you combat skin damage and wrinkles that are caused by environmental factors such as intensive heat, smoke, and air pollution.

Apricots offer a full dose of antioxidants, plus the fruit also contains vitamins C and E that also aid your skin. Vitamin C helps you protect against UV damage and neutralizing free moving radicals.

Together these vitamins also help you build collagen that provides your skin with extra strength as well as prevents wrinkles from forming.

This homemade recipe is perfect for those who are about to face the full brunt of warm weather coming ahead. Plus, its all-natural ingredients will offer you a break from all those mascaras and lipsticks for a while.

What you need is 2 to 3 avocados and a quarter cup of honey (yes, we know that is a lot), but so is this heavy-duty face mask.

Simply cut the fruit in half, mash it up without the pits, transfer to a bowl, add the honey, and blend it.

To use, rub onto your face with your hands and leave it on for 15 minutes to combat dry skin.

You can easily take a banana of medium size and mash into a smooth paste, considering they are already so soft.

What can this toner do for you, it can help you fight acne, remove dark spots, soothe your skin, stimulate blood circulation, and has anti-aging elements to name a few.
