When focusing on choosing healthy ingredients, it’s important to look beyond what goes into the food we prepare and consider what kinds of beauty products we’re using as well. Coincidentally, there are lots of beauty products that contain or consist of natural, edible ingredients. From olive oil-based face cleansers to pineapple-infused serums, we’ve rounded up some of the best food based beauty products to bring your favorite edible items into your skin and hair care regimen.
