Want to go out so bad but your pimples did the going out part instead? Our indoor time during this extended community quarantine period may be causing skin issues like breakouts, drying and dulling due to multiple factors of stress. In addition to that, some of you may have run out of skin care products and your favorite skin care shop may not be openly available around this time but don’t you worry, you can make your own skin-nourishing concoctions, and the ingredients that you need may actually be already available in your kitchen!

Thankfully, fruits and other crops aren’t just good for producing flavor and nourishing us after we digest them but also good for treating us externally.

Here are selected recipes that include ingredients that can be easy to access and easy to make in the kitchen to address your skin needs.
