Energize a sallow complexion with this berry-sweet skin scrub.
What You Need
3 medium-size strawberries
1 tablespoon honey
1. Stem strawberries, cut into small pieces, then mash against the sides of a bowl with a spoon until softened.
2. Fold in honey and gently mix until it's evenly distributed among berries.
3. Using small circles, continuously massage the mixture into your face for 3 minutes; rinse with warm water.
Gentle enough for sensitive skin types, "the natural fruit enzymes in strawberries slough the dull top layer of skin," says Jolanta Smusz, an aesthetician at Devachan Salon and Departure Lounge in New York City. It's also ideal for dry and oily skin: The honey hydrates parched patches, while the two-ingredient combo produces a mild antiseptic that can help head off breakouts.
