DIY Strawberry & Sugar Face Mask
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of olive oil
½ cup of sugar
½ cup of strawberries, rinsed and halved
Note: If you are allergic to strawberries, this is clearly not a recipe you should try. Even though you are not consuming the strawberries, you still do not want to pose the risk of an allergic reaction. You can do this recipe omitting the strawberries and get a nice little face scrub!
1. Combine all of the above ingredients into a blender or food processor. Mix well for 2-3 minutes until all of the ingredients are blended well.
2. If you wish for a moisture rich mask, you can add additional olive oil. If you wish for a mask that is more coarse, you can add additional sugar AFTER you remove the mixture from the blender.
3. Do not wait to use your mask. You want to use it while it is still freshly blended.
Apply the mask with fingers or a soft brush to your face, taking care to avoid the eyes or any sensitive areas. As always, test a small patch of skin first to make sure your skin will not have adverse reactions to the mixture. Leave it on your face 7-10 minutes. It will begin to dry and slightly harden. When time is up, use warm water to remove, massaging the mixture in a circular motion on your face as you do.
Your skin will have a nice glow and dead skin will be banished away. Give this DIY Strawberry and Sugar Face Mask a try and see what a difference it makes for you!
