Did you know that strawberries can be effective as a face mask?
If you read our articles regularly, you know we have plenty of recipes using raw honey in face masks. Today, though, we have a surprise ingredient… strawberries! Now, I have to admit, I am a sucker for fresh strawberries and if I get to dip them in honey, all the better. However, I have never even imagined combining the two ingredients and slapping the mix on my face.
According to India.com, in addition to being delicious, strawberries are also a great way to rejuvenate your skin. “They have strong astringent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidants properties that treat burns, protect your skin from UV rays, and delay aging. Strawberries are packed with alpha-hydroxylic acid that can help you get rid of dead skin cells. Those who have acne can use strawberries to get rid of the skin condition. This fruit contains salicylic acid that helps in this regard.”
The website recently published three strawberry face mask recipes, two of them with honey, that we think you may be interested in.
