Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Strawberry body scrub

submitted by Kelli Elmore, Sherman, TX USA

Tip description / details:
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. It is an important step in your skincare routine when wanting to rejuvenate weary skin. Your skin is left feeling soft, radiant and smooth. Exfoliating will also help to better prepare the skin to absorb moisturizers and therefore help to keep your skin hydrated. Strawberries have strong anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties. They cleanse and tighten the pores while also lightening skin discolorations. They contain a natural form of alpha hydroxy acids/natural salicylic acids that help remove dirt, breakdown dead skin cell build-up and unclog pores. Strawberries can also help to get rid of blemishes and acne. Strawberries are perfect for use on oily, combination skin, and acne prone skin. They are also an ideal ingredient for exfoliating elbows, hands and feet.

8 Strawberries, mashed; 1 tablespoon Orange Juice or Lemon Juice; 1 tablespoon Olive Oil; 1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar
