Fresh Strawberry Face Mask

For those that have oily skin, this face mask is the perfect way to pamper yourself without spending loads of money on expensive in-store products.  Strawberries are rich in alpha-hydroxy acid, which helps clear acne and reduce oil. Strawberries also reduce puffiness and circles beneath the eyes. Not only is this mask good for your skin but it smells amazing. I mean… who doesn’t love the smell of fresh strawberries?

You’ll need:
9 large ripe strawberries
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. all natural honey
1 lemon

First, in a bowl mash the strawberries with a fork until the mixture is smooth. Then add the olive oil. The olive oil will help moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. Next add the honey. The honey will reduce inflammation and kills bacteria. Now depending on how oily your skin gets, add a few drops of lemon juice to the mixture. The more oily your skin is, the more drops you add. Lemon juice is like a natural astringent cleaning your skin. Be careful not to add too much or it’ll strip your skin of too much moisture. Apply the mask to a clean, dry skin in an even layer on your face and neck. Be sure to be careful around the eye area. Leave the mask on for 5 minutes then rinse with warm water.
