Whip up these 12 simple beauty products to get great skin and hair.
1 of 12 | Strawberry Cleanser
Strawberries make an excellent mild
cleanser for all skin types. They have a
neutral pH close to that of your skin's pH
level (you want to keep your pH neutral
to avoid dryness). Strawberries also provide
high doses of vitamins A and C, antioxidants
that help ward off cell-damaging free
radicals. If you can't find fresh strawberries,
substitute thawed frozen whole ones. (Make
sure there's no added sugar.)
Place all ingredients in a blender or food
processor and blend until smooth. Store
in a jar with a lid in the refrigerator.
Place a small amount in your hand
and massage gently into your skin. Rinse
well with tepid water and pat dry.
Note: If you have oily skin, you may
want to reduce the amount of oil in this
recipe by half.
