Like lemon this plant has so many great benefits for your skin. Cut up some aloe leaves and rub them in the areas you want to target (you can even rub it on your whole face). You can leave it on for extra moisture or wash it off with water.


Yet another superfood! Papaya fruit has an enzyme that gets rid of any facial blemish. You can smash or grate it, apply it to dry skin, then leave it on your face for about 20 minutes before washing it off with water. You can mix it with honey for extra soft skin.
