When Tom told me it looked like I had acne on my face with this mask I definitely thought about not showing them to anyone.
Haha it’s not pretty. I had some manky strawberries to use up, and I’d heard they can make a great exfoliating face mask when mixed with oats and yogurt (yummy breakfast, less yummy facemask).
I mixed together the following;
6 strawberries – mashed
1tsp manuka honey
Spread it on your face and massage it around to exfoliate and moisturise the skin. Leave it on your face for 5mins while tucking in to some other strawberries. I love using real foods to nourish my skin both inside and out- although it doesn’t look that pretty, it tastes great!
Strawberries contain alpha hydroxyl acids that work against free radicals and improves the appearance of skin by fighting the common signs of ageing.
Honey is great for the skin as it’s antibacterial and a really great moisturiser, Manuka honey is especially brilliant as it is anti-fungal and tea tree antibiotic properties. Yogurt is really soothing, plus it contains lactic acid that apparently really helps the skin glow.
Why not have a root around your fridge and cupboards to find some goodies to make into a DIY natural face mask?!
