How to make a homemade strawberry mask

Honey, lemon and strawberries for acne

As we explained, this stoloniferous fruit is especially suitable for oily skin. All those who suffer from acne or other skin disorders, we need to be constantly aware of the pimples that appear on the face. With this home remedy you will get an intense facial cleansing that will regulate to disinfect the pimples.

To make a strawberry acne mask, take a few, put them in a bowl, and squeeze them with a fork. You should not liquefy or beat them, as we need the mask to be thick so that it does not slide down the face when you apply it. Add half a tablespoon of honey, and a half of lemon juice. Lemon has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, ideal for achieving an anti-acne effect. Apply it for a quarter of an hour all over the face, and remove it with plenty of warm water.

Strawberry and olive oil hair mask

Do you have damaged hair? Can’t tame frayed or frizzy hair? Have you lost your volume and you have not recovered it? With a mask of Fragaria and olive oil (or any other vegetable oil), it is possible to restore split ends, strengthen the roots and improve the appearance of damaged hair.

The preparation of this mask is simple. Again, mash the strawberries with a fork in a bowl, put a spoon of olive oil and another of aloe vera juice. You can also add honey, royal jelly or any other ingredient that you like. Let it sit for 20 minutes and remove it by shampooing. The benefits you will get are:

  • Conditioner. Reduces frizz while leaving hair feeling soft.
  • Strengthening thanks to the presence of vitamins and minerals. Get those curls or the vibrancy you were looking for.

Facial mask with strawberries, lemon and sugar

This strawberry mask is indicated, again, for oily skin. But we add a new feature: it is now exfoliating. It is ideal for those who have impurities, or those who have not done a facial for a long time. Its objective is to eliminate blackheads, regulate sebum and the brightness of the skin, while preventing the formation of wrinkles, toning the face.

In the preparation, you will need to mix the strawberries with a tablespoon of lemon, half of the sugar and, if you wish, a little honey. Also add yogurt and egg to make the mask more nutritious. Stir all the active ingredients until a homogeneous mixture is left, and apply it on the face using gentle massages so that the sugar removes the layers of dead skin.

Benefits of other ingredients

As you have seen, there are multiple ways to make your own strawberry-based mask. And the best of all is that you can customize it to your liking and according to the requirements of your skin. Take a look at the following list:

  • If you add oatmeal to the strawberries instead of sugar, you will get a more aggressive exfoliator.
  • If you have very sensitive skin, substitute olive oil for sweet almonds.
  • For hair, you can increase nutrition by adding a vitamin E capsule to the mask.
  • Yogurt, baking soda, aspirin, cucumber, banana… all have benefits for the body that, together with strawberries, will improve your beauty and reduce wrinkles.
