How to make a Strawberry Facial Mask

Strawberry face masks are easy, inexpensive and highly effective natural skin care for your face.
Updated: 2/16/16




RECIPE:  

2-3 strawberries
1 TBL warmed honey
1 TBL yogurt 

This fresh strawberry mask contains a super-packed hydrating, nourishing punch for your skin. 

The honey is a natural humectant, which means it draws moisture to the skin, hydrating and softening   it.  As well as providing nutrition, and anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant properties.

Strawberries are a natural alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) and rich in salicylic acid which sloughs off the dead, dry skin cells revealing healthy cells, as it tightens up pores and brightens your skin. 
It is high in anti-oxidants as well ... think anti-aging!
It's salicylic acid is known to help clear acne and reduce oil, naturally.

Yogurt plays a calming roll in this recipe. Nourishing, healing, soothing.
It's lactic acid is a gentle exfoliater, helping to rid the skin of dead cells clogging pores.




Spread facial on your face with a soft cosmetic brush or your fingers. A nice thin layer will do.
It makes a lovely pink face mask! Leave on 5-10 minutes, until relatively dry. Rinse off.
NOTE:  I like to blend mine in a "Bullet" type small blender as it makes it foamier, and easier to apply and stay on the skin. Or, just mash with a fork.
