With their leathery wrinkled skin, it’s a bit ironic that figs boast big anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits. We love to enjoy their lushly sweet, watermelon-hued inner flesh as a culinary treat during the late summer and early fall months, but that same pink pulp and even the outer peel contain numerous nutrients that can be applied topically to remedy acne and polish your skin.

Varying in size, color and shape, there are hundreds of cultivated varieties of figs, including these popular options: Black Mission, Brown Turkey, Calimyrna, Kadota and Sierra.
