The strawberry is known as the queen of fruit. Not only is it tasty, but it also possesses many qualities which could be to your skin’s advantage – from the high content of vitamin C to the antioxidant properties. These great little berries are much more than a pleasure to the palate. They purify acne and excessive oil from your skin, make it younger and smoother, and they whiten teeth!
In strawberry season, we decided to pamper you with a few beauty tips with them.
The most important ingredient for the skin in strawberries is the alpha hydroxy acid – an incredible substance which helps us purify dead cells and enjoy a younger-looking skin. Just cut a strawberry in half and rub its surface onto your face. Let sit for several minutes and then rinse away with lukewarm water. For softer and smoother skin!
Oily skin facial mask
Mix equal parts fresh strawberries (finely chopped) and low-fat yoghurt. Stir well and apply onto your face. Stay with the mask for about 10 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
Teeth whitening paste
Rub the enamel of your teeth with strawberry puree with a pinch of baking soda. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly with water.
Strawberries contain solid amounts of ellagic acid, which is used for active treatment of hyperpigmentation, caused by UV rays. Crush a few strawberries and add to them half a teaspoon of honey and apply on the problem areas. The paste has a bleaching effect.
Tonic for puffy eyes
Place a few slices of strawberries under your eyes and stay like this for 10 minutes. Then remove them and spray your face with rose water. It acts invigorating immediately!
