Skin concerns: acne, hyper-pigmentation, dull skin

In particular, papaya is a natural skin care ingredient that is on the rise. While papaya tastes good, it is also good for your skin! Particularly if you suffer from dark circles or hyperpigmentation. Indeed, using a product with papaya on your face helps eliminate hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne. As well green papaya can help your dark circles appear brighter. Additionally, papaya is a very gentle exfoliator, which is what helps fight against acne and hyperpigmentation. Moreover, papaya is packed with AHA as well as vitamin B and C.

Skin concerns: acne, dry, dull skin

While people have known about honey’s skin benefits for a while, brands seem to keep coming out with more and more honey infused products! Because of honey’s antibacterial nature, it lends itself as a superb skin care ingredient for fighting acne. As well, honey is full of antioxidants that help fight the signs of aging and add moisture back into your skin. Moreover, applying honey products can help your skin appear more glowy and help fade acne scarring! However, it’s important to remember that if you’re going to use honey on your face it should be in it’s raw, unprocessed form. In fact, Manuka honey is the perfect honey for your face if you’re thinking of diy-ing a face mask.


Skin concerns: dull, inflamed skin

As well, turmeric is becoming increasingly popular both as a natural food ingredient and as a natural skin care ingredient. In particular, turmeric is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. So it’s perfect for helping with acne scarring as well as brightening up your skin. Moreover, turmeric can help heal wounds making it good if you suffer from eczema. However, products containing turmeric may stain clothes due to the strong pigment found in this ingredient. But if you’re looking for something that will brighten up your face and reduce inflammation, then turmeric is for you! Especially, if you have dark under eyes, an eye cream with turmeric can brighten them up immediately!

Finally, a natural skin care ingredient that is massively popular in Korea is ginseng!
