Figs—those sweet, leathery-skinned fruits introduced to Texas by Spanish settlers—contain a host of antioxidants and fatty acids, plus magnesium, calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, all of which provide excellent benefits for your skin. Mashed, fresh figs have long been used as a remedy for acne, warts, wrinkles and even the early stages of chicken pox (not that we suggest this!). Try this polish and mask once or twice a week to even out skin tone and flush oxidants.
