Benefits of Raw Honey on Skin:

Honey is oozing with vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants that hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. It’s also antibacterial, which makes it a good choice for oily or acne-prone skin. Honey moisturizes and cleanses at the same time.

Benefits of Lemon on Skin:

The citric acid and vitamin C in lemon impart a healthy glow and can help lighten sun spots and freckles over time.

Benefits of Avocado on Skin:

The vitamins and fat in avocado moisturize your skin and help reduce fine lines.
