Today, we want to introduce you to a magic mix. You are probably familiar with its ingredients: strawberries and orange, but are you familiar with their superpowers?
Strawberries can be a wonderful addition to your skincare routine; packed with beneficial nutrients, including antioxidants and vitamin C which can help nourish and brighten your skin.
Oranges are also a rich source of vitamin C, which can provide numerous benefits to your skin from boosting collagen, brightening the skin, and protecting it from free radical damage.
Combining oranges and strawberries in a face mask can create a powerful concoction packed with skin-nourishing vitamins and antioxidants. These two superpower citrus fruits allows you to get the benefit from both, keeping your skin fresh and glowing and happy!
Here's a simple DIY Strawberry Citrus Face Mask that you can try:
- 1/2 ripe orange
- 2-3 ripe strawberries
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon honey
1. Squeeze the juice from half of a ripe orange into a bowl.
2. Wash the strawberries thoroughly, remove the stems, and mash them into a smooth paste using a fork or blender.
3. Add the mashed strawberries, plain yogurt, and honey to the bowl with the orange juice.
4. Mix all the ingredients well to form a smooth and consistent paste.
How to apply:
1. Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser and pat dry.
2. Apply the orange and strawberry face mask evenly on your face, avoiding the eye area.
3. Let the mask sit on your face for about 15-20 minutes.
4. Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a soft towel.
5. Follow up with your regular moisturizer.
This orange and strawberry face mask can provide a wonderful combination of brightening, nourishing, and revitalizing benefits for your skin. Remember to do a patch test on a small area of your skin before applying the mask to your entire face, especially if you have sensitive skin or any known allergies to the ingredients. As with any DIY skincare, it's always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist if you have any concerns or specific skin conditions.
