The strawberries contain salicylic acid, which works by removing dead skin cells, impurities and lightens blemish scars. The organic honey is packed full of trace elements and combined with the cream it provides nourishment to dry skin. If your skin is sensitive then use live yoghurt instead of the cream, as it will balance the PH of the skin. Also, use raspberries rather than the strawberries.
4 medium sized ripe strawberries
1 Tablespoon of fresh double cream
1 Tablespoon of organic honey
Using the back of a fork, mash the strawberries. Add the double cream and organic honey to form a thick mixture. If you find the mixture too watery, add some more cream or a teaspoon of clay and mix well.
Apply the mixture evenly to a cleansed face and neck and leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water and gently pat dry, apply some rosewater to cotton pads and press into the skin. Leave to dry naturally and finish by applying your desired moisturizer.
