Strawberry Facial Scrub

Updated on February 3, 2016

DIY Strawberry Facial Scrub

Make this Strawberry Facial Scrub for glowing, healthy looking skin.

I don't know about you, but I love strawberries, I mean absolutely adore them. I can eat tons of them myself. I also like to make a simple, natural face scrub with them. They are healthy for you inside and out!

Strawberries are healthy for you in so many ways, but salicylic acid is great for your skin. This acid reduces the size of your pores, removes dead skin cells, and that means your skin will be brighter. Perhaps it will even glow.

Save some berries to eat later!

Why Use Strawberries?

These plump red berries are also very rich in minerals and vitamins.

  • Vitamin C
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Sodium
  • Folate
  • Antioxidants - so great as they have an anti-aging effect!

Strawberries gently exfoliate when you rub them on your skin. They remove impurities and reduce redness. Antioxidants are like little miracles for your skin. They fight free radicals and help to stimulate the production of new cells to keep your skin young looking.

Strawberries also have astringent properties, that is why they are highly recommended for people with oily skin. They can help skin texture to improve and get smoother, plus they can reduce the amount of sebum you have on your face and in your pores.

Step 1: Chop The Strawberries

A Strawberry mask will refresh and help restore your skin and give you a healthy glow!

  • A soft towel

You should always use gentle, circular motions when putting anything on your skin.

Apply the scrub, put it on your face and your neck with those wonderful circular motions. You can continue to massage the scrub in for three to five minutes. This will give the salicylic acid a bit of time to perform it's magic and rid your face of those dead cells.

Rinse your face with warm water to remove the scrub.

Pat dry, gently, with a soft towel.

Apply a bit of your favorite moisturizer when you are done.

Wipe it with a warm towel, then apply a facial moisturizer.

Different Fruits You Can Use In Face Scrub Recipes

People use lots of different fruits in facial scrub recipes because fruits are chock full of vitamins, minerals, acids that remove dead cells, and antioxidants ... you remember those guys right? They fight free radicals and have amazing anti-aging properties.

The other fruit you can add to a mask instead of strawberries are:

  • Avocado
  • Lemon
  • Mango
  • Oranges
  • Papaya and Apricot
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Pumpkin

Oils In Your Face Scrubs

Like different fruits you can add to your face scrub, you can also use different types of oils. The important thing to remember about oils is to choose the ones that don't clog pores up. They are called Non-Comedogenic Oils. The word comedogenic means to clog pores and encourage the formation of blackheads...exactly the opposite of what we want. That's why we need Non-comedogenic oils. They are:

  • Almond Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Hazelnut Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Sunflower Oil

To name a few. You can use any of these oils in the natural scrub recipes unless it specifically tells you not to.

Check out the videos below, they both have recipes with strawberries but they are a little bit different than the one I've written about. You might like mine best, or you may like theirs...the important thing is that you find a face scrub you are happy with.
