DIY home spa treatment: Three cheers for strawberries!



StrawberriesWho doesn't love strawberry season? My favorite ruby fruit is spicing up everything these days, from my lunch salad to my skin complexion.

That's right, I've been rubbing strawberries on my face. Don't knock it before you've tried it.

I recently read in some magazine at the gym an article about the popularity of natural products in skin care treatments and spa therapies. It included a few DIY recipes. A simple facial option caught my eye.

  • Combine three strawberries and a tablespoon of honey. Mash until smooth. Massage onto your face for three minutes. Enjoy a glowing complexion!

The real deal: It does feel odd to be rubbing strawberry syrup on your face, but the smell was just heavenly and relaxing. But the goop is messy. I did not regret standing over the kitchen sink.

The result: My face felt smooth and fresh, and a light strawberry scent lingered.
