DIY Strawberry mask for Acne prone skin

Hey “BD beauties”!

I have been totally trying out natural products for my acne prone skin lately and those includes lots of natural DIY’s too. Natural masks do not give extreme results but for the moment they help control acne which is what you need to try doing first. One such mask is using strawberries! Did you guys know strawberry is a source for salicylic acid? Which is a well know ingredient used in products careered for acne prone skin! Why not do it naturally? I have to tell you that the mask will look like a strawberry milkshake so don’t end up drinking it all :)


What do you need?
  • Strawberries
  • Honey
  • Lemon
  • Yogurt

The measurements all depend on how you like the consistency to be but the main ingredient are the berries!


What do you need to do?
  • Step 1: mash up the strawberries. You can do them by hand or even puree them in a food processor I prefer pureed berries for this.

  • Step 2: squeeze in little bit of the lemon. The lemon will act as a preservative letting you store the mask for future use and it’s also a chemical exfoliate that removes dead skin cells.

  • Step 3: next mix in the honey. Honey is a natural moisturizer and also brightens the skin complexion it also has anti bacterial properties to clear out bacteria just like strawberries.

  • Step 4: finally mix the above mixture with the yogurt. The yogurt is to bring the mask to a consistency that’s easy to apply and also it has good things of its own such as fighting bacteria! I recommend using non fat yogurt. If you feel that you mask is runny, add in a teaspoon of corn starch to ring it together.


How to use it?

To prep your skin I recommend you cleanse your face then steam with warm water for about 10 minutes to open your face. Then apply your mask evenly avoiding the eye area and let it sit for about 15 minutes and wash it off with warm water. Do not forget to apply moisturizer afterwards!
