3. Mint

Mint being the life of almost every refreshing summer cooler, has much more to its credit than just fragrance and taste. Its anti-inflammatory properties helps calm dry skin and controls oiliness. The fragrant mint paste has a cooling and soothing effect on the skin. Mixing mint paste with turmeric can help you fight redness and pimples.

4. Avocado

Avocado is a rich source of various vitamins and minerals like vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin C, etc. It's a great way to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin. The berry gives elasticity to the skin and hence reduces early ageing. Just mix mashed avocados with a spoonful of honey to give your skin that moisture boost it needs in this cruel weather.
