Ingredients:

1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice

1 Cup Fresh Strawberries

2 Egg Whites

3 Teaspoons Pure Honey

Prep:

Make sure you remove the stems off the strawberries and mash them in a bowl with a fork until they are of a liquid consistency. You can also puree them in a blender if easier for you. Pour in the rest of the ingredients and mix together until until blended well. Apply to your clean face and neck and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and apply an oil-free moisturizer to hydrate further.

Benefits:

This mask is wonderful for anyone with oily skin. The natural astringents in lemons and strawberries help combat your oil while fighting acne at the same time. Strawberries contain a large amount of salicylic acid which removes dead skin allowing fresh skin to surface. Your skin will have a more youthful glow while also being more hydrated in the right way…not the oily way!

The egg whites are packed with vitamins that help fight acne. Vitamin B3 helps improve the blood flow of the body, thus opening your pores, helping to remove dirt and oils from clogging them. Vitamin B2 helps relieve stress and since stress is correlated with acne, egg whites will help minimize both! Zinc is also found in eggs and zinc is known to help regulate hormones (hello teenagers!) and heal open wounds and cuts more quickly.

The honey will leave your skin feeling smooth while fighting acne-causing bacteria. Honey is wonderful because it will remove your skin of impurities without breaking you out or clogging your pores. Your skin will also be soothed and softer from the honey.
