Now that summer’s almost done, this recipe seems a tad more appealing (although it’s cheaper in the summer, I prefer wearing these masks outside. The thought of wasps/bees/bugs getting all excited to be around my face totally turns me off).
Wear an old T-shirt before trying this recipe (or something you don’t mind getting dirty). Strawberry stains can be tough to get out, so if you get any on you, rinse & wash right away.
You can use this goop on your face, body or even on bikini zones: it can minimize ingrown hairs & remove dead skin cells. ATTENTION FELLAS: This exfoliant is perfect for you too! It’s great for sensitive shaved skin and can prevent breakouts.
Tip for Vegans: Make recipe with molasses instead of honey, but expect it to be a little more sticky.
Ingredients: Strawberries (about 8-9 medium sized, or 4-5 larger) & honey (molasses if vegan). Makes 2 mask mixtures.
Why It Works:Each strawberry packs a mighty dose of exfoliating vitamin C and alpha-hydroxy acids, which help remove dirt and dead skin cells. AHAs also help reduce pore size and minimize ingrown hairs due to shaving, especially important for men. Perfect for oily skin, strawberries improve texture, minimize greasiness, and encourage a healthy, radiant complexion.
How To Make It: With a fork, mash strawberries into a paste. Add 3 tbsp of honey & mix. (Be sure not to over blend or the mask will be runny.) Apply directly to your skin and let sit for a few minutes. Rinse off with water.
