Strawberry is an awesome fruit. It’s a superb fruit that shows great results on all skin types, normal, oily, acne-prone, dry, whatever. Strawberry is rich in vitamin C, and also salicylic acid which you all know is so good for acne-prone skin.

Cleanse with Strawberry and Yogurt Cleanser:

The first step would be cleansing of course. Instead of slathering your face with chemical-laden cleanser, start with this homemade strawberry and yogurt pack which would much more effectively cleanse the deep pores of your face. As I mentioned before, the salicylic acid in strawberries can deep cleanse and unclog the pores. Yogurt can eliminate acne-causing bacteria and the acidic nature of yogurt can draw out impurities and oil from the pores. To make this cleanser, mash 4 to 5 strawberries together and add 1 to 2 tbsp of yogurt. Mix well and apply on the face and massage your face in circular motions. Do this for 2 minutes and rinse off.

2. Exfoliate with Strawberry and Oatmeal Scrub:

As I mentioned previously, strawberries have salicylic acid which cleanses and exfoliates skin cells deeply. When you mash in a few strawberries and add in 2 tbsp of oatmeal powder, this mix can act as a natural, gentle, non-abrasive exfoliator that get rids of dead skin cells and give you fresh, smooth, and soft skin. Your pores would be completely unclogged after this step. Rinse your face thoroughly after you are done.

3. Massage with Strawberry and Milk Cream:

Here comes the next step and also an important one. Cleopatra used to bathe in milk for a reason. Milk has proteins, calcium, lactose and skin beautifying compounds. Milk also soothes and nourishes skin. It also hydrates and calms down inflamed skin. So, after you have got the strawberry pulp ready, to it, add 1 tbsp of milk to it. Massage this on your face and neck in circular and inward and outward motions. Wipe your face with a moist cotton. If you have extremely dry skin, you can use sweet almond oil instead of milk and if you have oily skin, replace milk with pure aloe vera gel.

4. Face pack with Strawberries, Papaya and Honey:

This is the final step. This is an excellent antioxidant face pack. It will provide your skin an extra boost of nourishment. The vitamin A content of papaya and vitamin C of strawberries will nourish and add glow to your skin. To make this pack, mash a few pieces of ripe papaya and 4 strawberries together. Add a little amount of honey to this pack, mix well, and apply on the face and neck. Keep it on for 20 minutes and rinse off.

Do this at least once a week and you would be able to see a considerable difference in your skin texture and improvement in overall skin health. Do let me know how it worked for you 🙂
