Strawberries can do wonders for our skin. They are packed with antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and E. These antioxidants help fight free radicals which bombard us almost everyday. Vitamin A-C-E is the trifecta of skincare ingredients. Vitamin A helps build collagen, vitamin C helps clarify you skin and evens out skin tone, and finally vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. Strawberries also have anti-inflammatory properties that may help with redness and breakouts.

Homemade Strawberry Face Scrub

  • 2-3 ripe or over-ripe strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or a dollop of cold cream (Ponds or Olay)

Mash the strawberries with a fork. Mix the mashed strawberries with the sugar and olive oil. If you don’t like to use oil on your face, you can swap it out for any basic cold cream or face cream you may have.

Apply scrub to face in a circular motion. Leave on for 1-3 minutes and rinse off. Finish off with your moisturizer of choice.

The strawberry seeds and sugar work hard to scrub away dull skin to reveal bright youthful looking skin.  The sugar helps retain your skin’s moisture and the olive oil also acts as an antioxidant and moisturizes your skin.
