The lactic acid in yogurt gently exfoliates your skin and in turn, brightens your complexion. Because of its thick and creamy texture, yogurt can be an ideal ingredient in face masks. It has a low concentration of acid, so it’s good for sensitive skin — but if you want a more powerful natural ingredient, try buttermilk.

Honey

The antimicrobial properties in honey help kill the bacteria that cause blemishes. It’s been used as a medical treatment for thousands of years, and when applied topically, creates a breathable barrier that assists in healing wounds. It can also reduces inflammation of the skin, making it a viable option for people who have eczema. Spot treat with honey or use it in a mask.
