Strawberry

Besides being delicious, strawberries are good for your skin. In addition to Vitamin C which helps to produce collagen to plump and firm the skin, you will find  strawberries are a healthy source of phytonutrients and antioxidants. These nutrients are known to fight free radicals which are responsible for cell damage that contributes to cancer.

1 Ingredient Wonder: Strawberry

Some simple ways to implement strawberries in your skin care routine.

For the face:  Simply mash or blend a few strawberries.  Apply to the face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes.  Rinse with warm water.

For Puffy Eyes: Just place a few strawberry slices under your eyes and relax for 10 minutes, then remove the slices, wipe with a cool cloth and moisturize.

For Feet: Mash strawberries together. You want this to be a bit chunkier.  Rub on your feet, the strawberry seeds act like a scrub.  Rinse with warm water.  This one can be a bit messy so use over the tub or a bowl.

For Teeth: Crush one strawberry and rub over teeth. The natural alpha-hydroxy acids found in strawberry should help lighten teeth. Follow by rinsing with water.
