Strawberries are one of the best fruits that you can incorporate into your beauty regime so as to get the glowing skin you’ve always wished for. They are rich in those anti-oxidants and vitamins which help in combating age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and all such skin related problems. Strawberries have high water concentration levels, making them excellent hydrants and humectants. The fruit also has fine seeds in its carp which can help in exfoliating the skin tissues, thereby giving you soft, supple and glowing skin. Here are some amazing strawberry masks that you can easily prepare in the comfort of your own home.
Strawberry and Coffee
Make a paste out of some strawberries and add the finely ground coffee powder to it. The water from the strawberries should be sufficient enough to turn the mixture into a thick paste. If you feel the need to make it less viscous, you can add a few teaspoons of water to the mixture. Use this paste as a scrub and massage your face all over with it. After a few minutes, wash off the paste from your face with lukewarm water. This mask is an excellent exfoliant and gives your skin an even tone as well. Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C which also helps brighten your skin tone.
Strawberry and Orange
This fruit mask is loaded with nutrients. Both strawberries and oranges have high natural acid concentration levels which make this mask an excellent option for dealing with acne or skin irritation issues. Peel an orange and extract all the fiber from it into a bowl. Add some mashed strawberries to the orange fibers and mix well. Apply this mixture as a mask onto your face and neck region and leave it to dry. Once it has dried completely, scrub off the remnants of the mask with your hands and wash your face with cold water. The acidic nature of the mask helps in maintaining your skin's pH levels and further prevents the production of excess oil and sebum.
Strawberry and Honey
Strawberries and honey both have the properties of a humectant which helps in absorbing and sealing the moisture in your skin. This mask works wonders for people with dry skin. Mash some strawberries and add a few teaspoons of honey to it. Honey will make the paste thicker and stickier. Apply this mixture onto your face and let it dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. You can then wash your face with lukewarm water and even use a mild cleanser, in case it feels sticky. This mask helps boost your skin’s natural oil production and provides a coat of moisture over your skin. This moisture coat helps in preventing the loss of water from your skin and seals in all the nourishment, keeping your skin fresh, supple and well moisturized.
