Strawberries and Cream Mask

Strawberries and Cream Mask

This is one mouth-watering, totally delicious, and couldn’t-be-easier skin treatment. Honey–known for centuries as a natural humectant–combined with cream nourishes tired skin and keeps it supple and moist, while the salicylic acid in strawberries cleanses by removing impurities and dead cells.

You will emerge from this quick to make mask with fresher, happier skin. Heavenly!

INGREDIENTS

3-4 medium-sized ripe strawberries
1 tablespoon fresh heavy cream
1 tablespoon organic honey

1. Mash the strawberries with the back of a fork or puree them in a blender or food processor. Add the cream and honey to the puree to form a thick mixture.

2. Apply to the clean face and neck, avoiding the area around the eyes, and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off, using bottled or spring water and cotton pads.

Variations: Use yogurt with live and active cultures instead of the cream to balance the pH of the skin. You can also use raspberries instead of strawberries. This yogurt/raspberry combination is suitable for sensitive skin, and is less likely to cause minor irritation for anyone allergic to strawberries.
