I love skin care products as much as the next woman, but I am also a huge fan of creating DIY beauty products at home. It’s pretty amazing how many simple products from our kitchen can actually make a huge impact on our skin. What’s even better is that these homemade treatments won’t contain any of the damaging preservatives or chemicals that may be found in conventional skin care products. Try using one of these 11 common kitchen items on your skin and see if it makes a difference!

Plain yogurt makes a great moisturizing treatment when applied as a mask. Just slather it on, let sit for 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly. I personally like to blend mine with blueberries or strawberries for an extra antioxidizing kick!

Lemon juice makes a great toner for oily or acne prone skin and it’s high vitamin C content make it wonderfully brightening. Using lemon as a toner is as easy as swiping a fresh slice across your face!

Bananas are a wonder fruit when it comes to at-home skin care. They can moisturize the skin, reduce oiliness and prevent wrinkles all at the same time! Mash up half a ripe banana, spread all over your face, let sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse.
