(NaturalNews) Forget shopping at department stores for expensive skin care products. Instead, head to your kitchen for the best kept secrets for naturally beautiful skin. That`s right: food is your medicine and when it comes to skin care, these foods provide everything you need for clear, glowing skin:

Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil is an excellent moisturizer for dry skin. You can also use olive oil for oil cleansing: simply massage a half teaspoon into your skin for a few minutes and then gently wash your face off with warm water and a clean wash cloth.

Honey

Raw honey has long been prized for its healing properties. Used as a mask, it is excellent for cleansing and toning the skin. A cinnamon honey mask is rumored to help acne-prone skin. Raw honey can also be used with sugar as a scrub for glowing skin.

Eggs

An organic egg white mask works wonders for tightening pores, while an organic egg yolk mask is perfect for restoring the skin`s natural ability to heal and protect itself.

Lemon Juice

Diluted lemon juice is known to be an effective toner for acne-prone skin. It may help with lightening red marks and preventing breakouts by gently exfoliating the skin.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar can be diluted with green tea and used as a toner for all types of skin. Undiluted apple cider vinegar can also be dabbed on pimples as a spot treatment. Tip: take a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water daily to harness its healing powers internally as well.

Sugar

Sure, you`re told every day not to put sugar in your body, but there`s nothing wrong with using it on your body. Organic sugar makes an excellent body scrub and polish. Mix with a hint of olive oil or jojoba oil if your skin is dry.

Yogurt

Yogurt is considered the perfect elixir for health and longevity, but most people don`t realize it can be used for skin care, too! Yogurt makes the perfect natural facial mask for rejuvenating the skin. It contains natural acids that gently exfoliate the skin and give it a beautiful glow.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal soothes irritation and calms sensitive skin. Using a coffee grinder or food processor, grind organic oats into a fine powder. This can be used to gently exfoliate the skin, or you can combine it with honey or yogurt for a soothing facial mask.
