1. Banana

Head to the produce department, rather than the cosmetics counter, when looking for new ways to spruce up and moisturize your skin this winter. Not only will you save a lot of money, but you’ll also avoid the long list of unnecessary and dangerous ingredients that make up most conventional beauty products. The following list of fruits (yes, they’re all just fruits!) will nourish your body in ways that chemicals never can.

Bananas are gentle, soothing, and moisturizing, and are rich in vitamins and minerals. Mash one up and spread it on your face. Let this mask sit for 15 minutes (if you can resist the urge to nibble at it) and wash off for lusciously hydrated skin.
