Pomegranate
Pomegranates seeds might be hard to crack into, but they’re well worth the effort. These tart crunchy seeds are loaded with anti-aging compounds, like antioxidants and vitamin C, and are a popular addition to yogurt or oatmeal. But, they’re also beneficial when it comes to your beauty regimen.

This Pomegranate Exfoliating Scrub at-home recipe helps remove dead skin cells for smooth, soft skin.

How to make it:
In a food processor, combine 2 tablespoons of pomegranate seeds and 1 cup uncooked oatmeal. Transfer to bowl; stir in 2 tablespoons honey (an antiseptic) and 2 tablespoons buttermilk. Apply to face for a few minutes, then rinse. For rough patches (like elbows), add ¾ cup turbinado sugar.

Cranberries
This fruit is a popular ingredient in holiday side dishes, dressings, and drinks. Cranberries can also help naturally exfoliate lackluster dead skin.

Try this refreshing treatment twice a month.

How to make it:
Mix 1 cup fresh cranberries, 1 cup seedless red or green grapes, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1 envelope unflavored gelatin at medium speed for 20 seconds, until they have a paste-like texture. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes to thicken. Remove from the fridge and let sit about 10 minutes. Spread the mixture on clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
