A homemade strawberry facial mask is a frequently returning feature in the skin care regime of people with oily skin and they who have an ongoing battle with acne

Strawberries are crammed with vitamins and contain salicylic acid which both are very useful to treat and pamper your skin

And everyone, and that includes you, can enjoy a relaxing and satisfying natural spa experience right there in your own home with these strawberry facial masks. It's all made clear; these face mask recipes are as simple as ABC, affordable or downright cheap and you probably have the ingredients already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets

We have the recipe you bring the energy

…and the ingredients and some kitchen utensils please




Why a strawberry facial mask, what are the benefits of strawberries for me…or my skin?

These tasty red berries cleanse, exfoliate and refresh your skin because the salicylic acid gets rid of your dead skin cells, it tightens your pores and brightens up your face making it look shinier. They refresh, remove impurities, reduce swelling and redness and slightly whiten your skin

Because of the cleansing and exfoliating capabilities a strawberry facial mask is a very looked after recipe by people who have oily or acne prone skin

There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe



Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page


When you have applied the strawberry mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
