Skin Care Ingredients You’ll Find In Your Kitchen

Keep an open mind when it comes to the ingredients being discussed below and I promise you might actually find something good come from doing so.

Coconut Oil

I’m a huge fan of coconut oil, mostly because it’s a great moisturizer and it’s able to easily remove makeup from your skin. While I like to drink this in the morning with my protein shakes, I actually like to use it for my skin and hair more. What do I do with it exactly? Well, I typically create a moisturizing hair mixture and I use it as a makeup remover. Given that coconut oil is both an antibacterial and anti-fungal it’s great for your skin and really healthy even. I know some people that like to use this as an eye makeup remover.


We all love eating guacamole, right? Well, avocados are fantastic for your hair and skin. Jammed packed with nutrients, fatty acids, and more, you’ll find that applying avocados to your skin can, in fact, help boost moisture levels and literally nourish your skin. Some people like to incorporate this into a DIY mask using oats and honey injunction with avocado. Let me put it this way, there’s a reason why avocado sheet masks are all the rage these days.


When you go to the spa, what’s the one vegetable that every spa offers you for your eyes? You guessed it: cucumbers! This vegetable is legitimately a staple for 90% of the people that like to do at-home spa treatments in a DIY style. The main reason why people use cucumbers is to help reduce the amount of water that their body retains. All you need to do is apply a couple of cucumber slices to your eyes and watch the puffiness disappear. Kate Moss has a solid cucumber at-home fix too.

Brown Sugar

I absolutely love brown sugar for many reasons. One of the main reasons that I like this is because it’s tasty and the perfect consistency for a DIY lip scrub. You’ll find tons of DIY lip scrub recipes on the Internet and I can guarantee that using the brown sugar injunction with olive oil or even some coconut oil, you’ll find that you’re able to scrub that dry lip skin away in a matter of minutes.

Greek Yogurt

Not long ago, I’d simply go for a container of Chobani Greek yogurt as a snack to keep me full. I haven’t done that recently given that it’s proven to play a better role as an exfoliator over the years. If it’s not the probiotics that help make this a winner, it’s the lactic acid. Make people like to use this as a moisturizer, having the ability to wipe away your lines and wrinkles.


This ingredient is pretty much the most trendy and active of them all within this list. You’ll notice that turmeric is literally found in just about everywhere you can think of. It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory properties and although it can stain the skin and get a little bit messy, it’s for sure a winner.

Well, that’s all you need to know when it comes to skin care ingredients that you can find in your kitchen. Sure, you’re going to find more than what I’ve listed but this should help get you started for the most part. If you think any ingredients exist that I left off, please let me know and I’ll add them.
