Ingredients:

2 Tablespoon Pure Honey

2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

6 Fresh Strawberries (not frozen!)

Prep:

Mash the strawberries in a bowl until you have a good consistency for mixing in the other ingredients. Add the honey, brown sugar, and honey and mix together until you have a good paste. Apply to cleansed face and neck on leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and gentle cleanser. Then apply an oil-free moisturizer or a drop of pure extra virgin olive oil in replace of your moisturizer. Will not clog pores or make you breakout.

Benefits:

Salicylic acid is packed in strawberries as well and is known to minimize acne and cellular build-up so fresh, renewed skin can surface. Strawberries also contain many antioxidants that help fight free radicals that attack your skin, making you appear more youthful and giving you a beautiful glow to your skin. Strawberries also help lighten the skin so feel free to apply the mask under your eye area to lighten dark circles as well!

Brown sugar is a wonderful exfoliator the skin and is more gentle than a lot of exfoliating products on the market since the sugar is so finely ground and won’t tear up your skin. Lemon juice helps combat oily skin while honey fights microbial infections that cause acne without irritating your skin. This sweet goodness pulls out impurities from your pores that would normally stay clogged, festering bacteria that causes pimples.  Honey will also help restore your skin’s texture and reduce damage done to your skin by the sun and daily environments you come in contact with.
