No matter your skin type, full-fat plain Greek yogurt will help to gently exfoliate because of its lactic acid and moisturize because of its natural fats. Bananas contain vitamins B2, B6 and B12 to not only help reduce skin inflammation but also make the skin supple and soft.

Grape seed extract in champagne packs more vitamin C and E than most anti-aging toners on the market. Strawberries not only instantly brighten your complexion with their fruit acids, but also simultaneously protect skin from further free radical damage with their antioxidant vitamin C. This toner will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping to prevent further aging.
