Homemade Strawberry Mask Recipes

strawberriesIt’s that time of year again—time for warmer weather, sunshine, and lots of fruit. Need a natural, summer way to pamper yourself? We have you covered!

Face masks are a great way to feed your skin that is screaming for hydration and nutrients from the sun and heat. Creating a at home solution for a facial mask is inexpensive, and great way to treat your face. But what can you use to make it?

Strawberries. These delicious berries are in season from late spring to early summer. Not only are they a great snack and great for you, but they are a great way to treat your skin. They are full of vitamin C and are rich with alpha-hydroxy acids, which help exfoliate the skin. We can all use those benefits after a long harsh winter.

As with any beauty product, always test a spot of the product on your neck or hand to make sure your skin doesn’t react. If you’re in the clear, wash your face to prep, then apply the home made mask mix to your face, and enjoy!

Below are three different strawberry masks to help you relax and rejuvenate! And a quick tip, if you have leftovers, store in an airtight container and put in the fridge. It will be good to reuse up to a week.
