I am back again, and trying to get you to head to the kitchen for another wonderful face mask! This face mask has a lot going for it.
Moisturizing & Exfoliating Strawberry Face Mask
Strawberries are packed with Vitamin C, which aids in anti-aging, reduces blemishes and acne, helps the production of collagen, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It is filled with antioxidants and phytochemicals. The seeds in the strawberries act as a gentle exfoliant, removing dry or dead skin.
Honey is a wonderful skin moisturizer. It’s a natural antioxidant and can prevent skin from premature wrinkling caused from sun damage. It also has antimicrobial properties which promotes healing and prevents against infections.
Olive Oil is another great moisturizer. Olive oil is useful for skin irritations, such as dry, itchy or inflamed skin, or skin affected by eczema or psoriasis. It also has excellent anti-aging properties.
Oatmeal is a very soothing to irritated, itchy, dry, or red skin. It is a great exfoliating agent and helps cleanse your skin from impurities.
Combine these all together, and you get the perfect moisturizing & exfoliating face mask!
