Refreshing berry-mint mask

Almost all the berries and fruit we consume are suitable for making body care products. When I choose organic-vegan cosmetics at the store I tend to prefer the ones with delicious  appetizing aroma.

The strawberry season has begun and as I can´t endlessly eat them I made a refreshing face mask out of them. C-vitamin rich berries are slightly acidic and therefor good for cleansing oily skin. Also the juice of strawberries acts as a mild bleach to help lighten darker spots and scars on the skin. In addition folic acid found in the berries should reduce aging of cells and support producing healthy ones.

YOU NEED:

100 g strawberries

0,5 TSP lemon juice

leaves of an avarage size mint stem

3 TSP starch

MAKING OF: Mix all the ingredients  with a blender or fork and set aside for 5 minutes. Then use it fresh on your face and neck and let it stand for 10-15 minutes. Then wash the skin with warm water. The blend stays fresh up to 3 days in the fridge.

Recommendation: for very dry skin would be beneficial to add a drop of argan-or cocnut oil.
