5 large strawberries
I used frozen strawberries. I microwave defrosted them for 2 minutes, and then microwaved them for one minute.
In a small bowl, add the strawberries. Mush them with a potato masher or a fork until they are completely smooth. Next add the honey. Stir. Dip the Gauze in the mixture completely coating it and put it on your face (leaving room to breathe, of course) or just put it on your face using your fingers or a cotton ball.
Leave it on your face for 5-20 minutes, and rinse with warm water. If it starts to tingle too much (which might be the case in people with extra sensitive skin or bad acne) wash it off with warm, then cool water. Your skin will feel tightened and refreshed and silky smooth to the touch.
The reason it is an AWESOME face mask:
Strawberries are a huge source of Vitamin C!
"Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is extremely effective as an antioxidant, your natural defense against free radicals, which are unstable molecules that age the skin, resulting from environmental pollutants, smoking, or excess sun exposure. Vitamin C neutralizes volatile reactions caused by free radicals that damage skin.
Another big plus for vitamin C: it is a critical component for the production of collagen, an essential skin protein. If collagen is not produced, your skin will sag and appear dull. By increasing the production of collagen, vitamin C strengthens the structural support and resiliency of your skin. Collagen is equally critical for connective tissue in organs, bones, teeth — virtually everywhere in the body. Adding a healthy dose of vitamin C to your diet and using facial products that contain vitamin C can help you feel better, reduce wrinkles, and improve your overall skin quality."
Strawberries also contain:
Honey is basically a super food with amazing skin healing properties! It is a antimicrobial agent and antioxidant and is incredibly moisturizing.
It's an awesome at home mask that costs tons less than going to the spa, it works better and is 100% natural. :)
