We're grateful to Mother Nature who has already provided us with the ingredients, and it just takes some time and minimal effort to use them for our own beauty benefits.

Not just good for health and your body, eating avocado also does wonders for your skin. You can consume avocado and also use it as a mask to get double dosage of the skin food. Packed with vitamin E and vitamin K, it's a definite must to add into your daily diet and beauty routine. Eat half an avocado and use the other half to create a paste mask for your face – pampering your skin inside out! Avocado oil also has excellent benefits when it comes to giving you a youthful glow as it stimulates collagen while it keeps your skin hydrated. Another wonderful benefit is that it has healing properties that work great against sun damage and reduces age spots.
This natural moisturiser works miracles when it comes to skin. Aloe vera has vitamin C and vitamin E that help with skin tightening as well as providing the right ingredients to keep the skin nourished and moisturised. It also helps with scars and tightening the pores. Fresh aloe vera is best when it comes to skin tightening, so just get a leaf of aloe vera, cut into it and apply the gel onto skin directly to reap all its benefits. Due to its mild nature, it can also be used around the eye area which is prone to lines and wrinkles.
Very much like the aloe vera, cucumbers have similar benefits and work great for skin tightening too. You can mix both ingredients for more effective results. To make it a treat for the skin, refrigerate it to have a soothing, cooling affect when applied and enjoy.
It may not be the most pleasing to use as a mask due to its smell, but it works like magic. It gives you an almost immediate lift, and helps tighten pores. Rub it gently into your skin using an upward motion with your fingertips as it gives your skin a lift - pulling downwards yields negative results in the long term. Allow it to dry, then rinse off with warm water. You'll see the difference right after.
Lemons due to its acidic nature also comes packed with natural astringents, being one of the best properties when it comes to skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Premature ageing can be avoided due to this little yellow fruit being packed with vitamin C. All you need to do is squeeze out some lemon juice and apply it on to your skin. Do however be careful as it’s a pretty strong substance – you can add some water to dilute it. Not only will it tighten skin, its bleaching properties can help even out skin tone and also fade acne scars. Take note though that if you’re usually out in the sun a lot, this is not the remedy for you as lemon juice causes the skin to be sensitive to sunlight, and you could get sunburn.
It doesn't get easier than this! By doing facial exercises, you tighten your skin and the best part? It can be done almost anywhere at any time. Start off by doing the most basic which is smiling. Not only will it help make your skin tighter, it helps boost your mood too. You can also do face lift exercises such as elongating your neck and stretching.
