Ingredients:

¼ cup of fresh strawberries (ORGANIC is best and NOT frozen!)

1 banana

¼ cup of plain organic yogurt or sour cream

1 tablespoon of organic honey

Prep:

Mash strawberries and banana and mix together with the plain yogurt or sour cream and honey. Apply all over your face (avoid getting in your eyes!) and neck. Allow to sit on your skin for 15-20 minutes. Rinse mask off with warm water. Save any leftover Strawberry Cream Mask in a closed container, refrigerated, for future use!

Benefits:

Strawberries contain a large amount of Vitamin C, which is known to play a key role in the production of collagen. Vitamin C aids in anti-aging, and also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and minimizes blemishes and acne. Vitamin C is a key ingredient in many skin care products.

Omega-3 fatty acids are not only found in fish oils, but strawberries as well! It’s known that omega-3 helps reduce inflammation in the body and skin, and can help hydrate skin that is dry and flaky (especially beneficial for those dealing with Psoriasis, Eczema, and Dermatitis). It also helps with keeping the skin looking younger.

Salicylic acid is also found in strawberries and is known to minimize acne and rids the skin of dead skin cells so fresh, renewed skin can surface. Strawberries also contain loads of antioxidants that help fight free radicals that attack your skin, helping you look more youthful and giving you a beautiful glow to your skin. Strawberries also help lighten the skin which is why it’s important to apply the mask on the under eye area as well to lighten dark circles.

Plain organic yogurt or honey will give you added moisture and leave your skin glowing.

Bananas are great for reducing skin inflammation and for soothing blemishes and breakouts.

Honey is a wonderful antioxidant proven to help reduce impurities from the skin and help battle mild acne. It also helps restore skin’s texture due to its anti-microbial properties, and will help repair skin damage from the sun and daily environments.

    Should you use the same face mask over and over again. Or should you mixed them up? This is basically my last chance to get rid of my acne. It’s really getting annoying. I even tried proactive, it worked in the beginning but it stopped working.

    Am going to make this in a minute for me and a friend to put on tonight! To everyone else above, don’t expect instant results! You should do the mask a maximum of twice a week. Also, do not over exfoliate the skin, as this will irritate acne and make your skin produce more oil. Try to drink lots of water and use oil free products. If it’s really bad, speak to your Doctor, as their is acne medication available on prescription! Keep smiling 🙂 x
