    How to Use Strawberries in Facial Treatments

    Strawberries make an excellent skin cleanser and mask because they contain Vitamin C, salicylic acid, antioxidants and exfoliants. Salicylic acid sloughs dead skin cells from the face as it tightens pores and brightens skin. Antioxidants combat skin damage to keep skin looking young and fresh. Strawberries also exfoliate the skin and remove impurities while keeping skin soft. They soothe skin bothered by allergies or other irritants. Strawberries are even reported to help skin stay strong against environmental stress like pollution and the elements, and also whiten skin. Raw honey and milk are often used in strawberry facial masks and cleansers as each removes impurities and softens and exfoliates skin.


    Things You'll Need
    • 4 to 5 medium-sized strawberries, very ripe
    • 2 tsp. heavy cream
    • 1 tsp. raw, organic honey
    • White vinegar
    • Bowl
    • Paper towels or clean cloth
    • Fork
    • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
    • 1 tbsp. fresh milk
    • 1 tbsp. rice flour or cornstarch

    1. Strawberry Honey Face Mask

    • Rinse strawberries in a small bowl with white vinegar. Pour the vinegar out of the bowl and rinse the berries twice with water. Rinsing the strawberries two times with water ensures no vinegar remains on the fruit. Dry strawberries with a clean cloth or paper towel.
    • Mash the strawberries with a fork in the small bowl. Add the heavy cream and honey and mix well.
    • Immediately the apply mixture to your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse your skin with warm water and pat dry for clean, refreshed skin.

    2. Strawberry Cornstrach Face Mask

    • Add a 1/2 cup of fresh, clean strawberries, 1 tablespoon fresh milk and 1 tablespoon cornstarch to a small bowl. Mix well until ingredients form a paste.
    • Spread the paste over your face and let it dry for 20 minutes.
    • Rinse your face with water and pat your skin dry.
