I’ve heard a lot about the good things that come from a kitchen, but comparing it to a skin care spa or parlor may be stretching things a little bit. But then, maybe not!

If you’re fond of reading about skincare, I’m sure you have read about something about what we eat making our skin young, healthy, and aglow. There are skin beauty enhancing foods that, of course, we put in our fridge, jars, and cabinets.

1.  I remember reading an ad about the astringent effects of lemons. Your skin can benefit from them either by drinking them, eating them, or applying them directly on your face. Some people have found them refreshing when applied directly to the face.

The lemon is cut in half and placed inside the fridge. When you arrive home, wait for 30 minutes or one hour before applying lemons directly on your face, using the cut lemon itself. Apply it to the whole face and neck area. You can wash it just before going to bed. Others make it with equal portion baby oil and use cotton swabs to apply it. You can keep the rest in the fridge and use it again on the following day.

2.  Avocado, an exotic fruit is also known for its skin beautifying effect. In fact, it’s one of the active ingredients in some facial lotions and cream formulas, and it’s been proven to work. But if you don’t want to buy the products or you love pure organic facial treatments, you can use the avocado fruit and apply it directly on your face.

You can blender it to get a cream like consistency. Don’t put water or anything. However, baby oil will be a fine addition if you have very dry skin. Eating the avocado fruit will also have a positive effect on your skin. Avocado fruit contains good cholesterol and is good for your health. But remember to take everything in moderation.

3.  Gelatin, it’s excellent at removing blackheads and whiteheads from your face. You can use it for your facials. Cook it up to a gelatinous and sticky consistency, apply it on wax paper, cut in several pieces to cover all areas of your face, and cover your face with it. Wash your face with soap and dry it well before sticking the wax paper on your face.

Leave it there as long as you can bear it, 1 to 2 hours maybe, and then peel the wax papers slowly and you’ll be surprised to see what they’re able to uproot from your face. Your face will feel fresh and you’re going to look really magnificent. *Please note gelatin contains pork.

4.  Virgin olive oil, have you heard about it? You can also use it to treat dry skin. Just apply it on your face using a cotton swab. Pour a little amount on a dish, just enough for one use. Let it stay for 30 to 60 minutes then wash with soap and rinse.

Always remember to apply all your beauty condiments with a down up stroke, not up down. You don’t want those wrinkles showing up, don’t you?
