Just picked the first strawberries from our garden:

Fresh strawberries, yum - where's the cream?

Fresh strawberries, yum – where’s the cream?

But, hey, the birds had got to some first and some were overripe.

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – mash it up into a face mask like I did.

Fruit acids from fresh fruit are skin-brightening.

I added some oatmeal for consistency (it soaks up the juice) though you could use ground almonds too. Oatmeal is soothing and gentle.

strawberries + oatmeal = fruity mask

Then you just have to spread it on your face (smells divine), lie down and have a 15-20 minute nap before rinsing off.

Happy smiling strawberry face!
