Strawberry Summer Face Mask SUPER EASY TO MAKE 

When I think of summer I think of all these beautiful and delicious fruits that I usually neglect during the winter but when it comes to summer I just tend to gobble them up. But this summer I have been also applying it on my face, yes you heard it right, ON THE FACE :/ 
As much as I love THE BODY SHOP, I thought if Body Shop can do it then so can I. So I set a task to make a beautiful smelling and hopefully looking, Strawberry Summer Face Mask. 
The Strawberry face mask would be beneficial for people who have acne because strawberries contain Salicylic Acid. Salicyclic Acid is commonly found in a range of acne treatments and applications. This doesn't imply that this face mask has the same outcome on the skin or that it will completely heal acne. Yogurt the other ingredient found in the face mask contains cooling properties and therefore makes it ideal for the warm summers. Yogurt is also inexpensive and favorable for those who are sun burnt. This face mask is suitable for all skin types, however is you are allergic to any of the two ingredients then it is strongly not advised. Please, please try the face mask on a small section on your skin before trying it out on your face if you have sensitive skin.  

3 average size strawberries (juicy ones are better :)) 
1/4 cup of Greek yogurt or sour cream
Blender or a fork 
Good sized bowl 
old make up brush or cotton pad  
Labels or tags and a pen


step 1 Take 3 average sized strawberries, wash and cut them up, put into a clean blender or bowl ready to mix

step 2 Measure out 1/4 cup of yogurt or sour cream and add to the strawberries 
step 3 Mix the two ingredients together using a fork or blender 
step 4 The face mask is ready to use, apply on face for 10-15 minutes with an old make up brush or a cotton pad and then wash off

step 5 Once you have applied the face mask, you can put the remainder of the mask into a container, you may wish to put a label or tag on the container mentioning the date you made it and what it is, then place in fridge and use within two days. 

If you love a strawberry scent, then try out the strawberry body butter from The Body Shop or the strawberry body shower. The Body Shop have also brought out a new beautifying oil in many different scents including strawberry. 

Try it out, and tell me about your experience. What face masks do you use? I'm open to all suggestions, love to here from you.
