Strawberries provide you with vitamins, fiber, manganese, potassium, folate, flavonoids, and polyphenols.

Strawberries also contain salicylic acid which is responsible for fighting acne, unclogging pores, and leading to cleaner and healthier skin.

This super fruit performs miraculously when it comes to skin care. For a facial mask, choose the ripest strawberries because they are the densest in nutrients. Cut the berry in half and massage your face and neck with it. Then wait for 5 minutes and again wipe your face with a freshly cut half for 5 minutes more. After such a strawberry massage, wash the skin with room-temperature water. The strawberry juice is perfect for instantly lifting and brightening your skin up.

Honey is one of nature’s most wonderful foods that have numerous health and beauty benefits. Honey is probably the most natural and simplest skincare treatment and a perfect natural solution for many skin problems. Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, honey benefits oily and acne-prone skin. It deeply hydrates your skin, acts as a pore cleanser, lightens scars, and rejuvenates the skin.

The simplest and easiest facial mask is just applying honey directly on your face. But you have to avoid the area around the eyes. If the honey is too liquid, then put a wetted in honey napkin with eye holes

If you’ve never used manuka honey, you should try it. Manuka honey is the rarest honey in the world produced by bees from the nectar of the manuka tea tree in New Zealand and Australia. It has unique health and beauty benefits. But it is also the most expensive honey in the world.

Chocolate. The sweet delight. The one of the most mysterious, healthiest, and the most enjoyable foods in the world. Chocolate makes your skin, hair, and nails glow. Naturally. That’s why so many skin care treatment centers offer chocolate face masks. But you can do it nice and easy yourself, at home. In a bowl, combine the cocoa powder, honey, and cinnamon. Stir well and apply this paste on your face for about 15 minutes.

Sour cream

Sour cream is one of the healthiest fermented foods. It is made by adding lactic acid bacteria (probiotics) to milk cream and leaving it to ferment for about 24 hours. The lactic acid bacteria increase the thickness of the cream and add its characteristic tangy flavor.

Sour cream is rich in vitamin B12, calcium, vitamin A, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, and selenium.

Applying plain sour cream on your face is the simplest and excellent skin care treatment. The lactic acid will naturally remove dead cells and hydrate your skin. But mixing together two tablespoons of sour cream, half a banana and one tablespoon of honey will give you a better result. Make the paste and apply a thick layer of it to your face, wait for 10 minutes and then wash off with warm water.
