Strawberry DIY Facial

Super Cleanser For Oily Skin

Did you know strawberries are

Top 5 tips for oily skin:

  • Cleanse in the morning and night only; more cleansing creates more stimulation to oil glands.
  • Stop eating fast-food! Fast-food is full of oils, which comes out through your pores.
  • Lavender oil helps soothe red acne, breakouts, and calm your nerves.
  • Be sure all products used are oil free.
  • With a kleenex gently blot away excess face shininess.

Strawberries Fields

Here you go! According to WebMd — The tiny strawberry is packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and more. The heart-shaped silhouette of the strawberry is the first clue that this fruit is good for you. These potent little packages protect your heart, increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.

Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium. Just one serving — about eight strawberries — provides more vitamin C than an orange.

This member of the rose family isn’t really a fruit or a berry but the enlarged receptacle of the flower. Choose medium-sized berries that are firm, plump, and deep red; once picked, they don’t ripen further. First cultivated in ancient Rome, strawberries are now the most popular berry fruit in the world. In provincial France, they were regarded as an aphrodisiac. These red gems may be good for your heart in more ways than one.
