D.I.Y. Strawberry, Cream and Honey Facial Mask for Extra Dry Skin

Strawberries, Honey and Cream Mask for Dry Skin

For those who are suffering with extremely dry and/or flaky skin (thank you, Winter) this recipe is a must try!  The three simple ingredients in this recipe are all great at nourishing and hydrating skin on their own and the combination of the three is sure to combat dry and flaky skin. (And on that note, this recipe, the ingredients and that picture really make me crave strawberry shortcake right now…..)

What you need:

  • 6 ripe strawberries
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. heavy cream

What you do:

  • Cut the green tops off of the strawberries and cut the strawberries in half.  Place the berries in a bowl and mash them using a fork until you have a pulp-like consistency
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until a creamy paste forms
  • Apply the mixture to a clean face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes
  • Rinse with cool water and follow up with a moisturizer

Comments:

  • This mask can be a little drippy so make sure you wear an old shirt and put a towel down where you’re applying the mask
