The ingredients in this mask help to combat bacteria which is a main cause of pimples and blackheads. Honey is a fantastic face mask on its own as it is naturally antibacterial. The Strawberries and lemon are fantastic natural exfoliants as the enzymes help to break down dead skin cells, making your skin look fresh and glow.
– 8 – 9 Fresh strawberries or use 2 ripe bananas if strawberries are not in season
– 2 Tablespoon of raw honey
– 1 Tablespoon of oil – Extra virgin olive, jojoba, grapeseed or sweet almond oil
– Few drops of fresh lemon juice – About 8 drops if you have dry skin or up to 1 tablespoon for oily skin.
In a bowl, mash the strawberries with a fork until smooth. Stir in the honey, oil, and lemon juice until all the ingredients are well mixed. Or blend all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.
With your fingers gently apply the mixture all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Lie down and leave the mask on for 5 minutes. Wash it away with warm water, pat your face dry and follow up with some extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil massaged in well.
