I. Benefits

Cucumber

Cucumber is highly useful for the skin because it helps to make it look healthier and younger and helps in the treatment of different skin problems[1] [2]. It is also a natural toner because it exhibits cooling or anti-inflammatory agents. Besides, it helps to reduce and reverse the signs of premature aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, dull skin, etc. thanks to its potassium and manganese. Moreover, it is the most expensive method of dealing with oily skin along with its related troubles. Owing to its astringent properties, it aids in tightening skin pores and eliminating dirt, sebum, and dead skin cells from the skin surface.

Apple

Apple is a powerhouse of vitamins A and C, and copper that are skin-friendly nutrients[3]. Its vitamin C aids in restoring the collagen content of your skin[4]. Collagen offers the elasticity to your skin, thereby controlling the wrinkles and helps to maintain the waterproof barrier of the skin while its vitamin A assists in building the damaged skin tissues and accelerating the growth of new cells. In addition to this, its copper content is helpful for maintaining the production of melanin in your skin.

Oatmeal is perfect for preventing acne and improving complexion. Besides, it embraces direct antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities, which all help to treat itching related to irritated and dry skin[5]. Along with that, it comes with zinc that decreases inflammation and destroys the acne-causing bacteria[6]. Moreover, it fades away the dead skin cells and works as a natural moisturizer.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an ideal ingredient in skin care regimen and helps protect from possible infections[7]. Once applied topically, this oil helps to keep the connective tissues supple and strong, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It further makes your skin smoother by eliminating the dead skin cells. Apart from that, this oil can keep the skin moisturized and protected, thereby guarding you against the itchy and dry skin. Last but not least, it helps to battle various skin conditions owing to its antibacterial and antifungal properties[8]

Fuller’s Earth

Fuller’s earth is packed with natural minerals such as zinc, silica, iron oxides, and magnesium[9]. Because it’s a good absorbent, it rids the skin pores of excess oil, sweat, dirt, and impurities. It also does not dry the skin and maintains the moisture intact. It also aids in tightening the skin and restoring its natural luster and beauty. It also works wonders in improving your skin tone and lightening dark spots and blemishes. 

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is replete with skin-benefiting abilities, which can deal with unsightly skin conditions and improve the appearance and overall health of your skin[10]. It contains a compound called citric acid[11], which can help absorb excess oil and prevent unsightly breakouts.
