You can enjoy them on their own or in a salad, but you might want to start putting a few on your face. These guys are loaded with vitamin C – even beating out oranges! And vitamin C gives your skin a major boost, destroying free radicals and assisting in collagen production.

The little powerhouses are also rich in alpha-hydroxy acids which help exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin, making strawberries a perfect ingredient for dull or acne-prone skin.

Here are four DIY strawberry beauty recipes to cleanse, exfoliate and brighten your skin!

WHITENING STRAWBERRY TEETH SCRUB

Strawberries can act as a natural bleaching agent to whiten teeth. The malic acid in strawberries removes surface stains while vitamin C fights plaque. Combine 1 mushed strawberry (stem removed) with a teaspoon of baking soda. Dip a toothbrush or your finger into the mixture and brush your teeth for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and finish with regular flossing and brushing. Repeat twice a month.

ZIT-ZAPPING STRAWBERRY FACE PEEL

Aspirin contains salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid which acts as a chemical peel to reduce acne and lesions. The vitamin C and AHAs in lemons and strawberries exfoliate and reduce the appearance of age spots.

Crush 3-5 non-coated aspirin into a fine powder. Mix with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice and let the aspirin dissolve for a couple of minutes. Then add the juices from 1 mashed strawberry. Dip a cotton ball into the liquid and apply to your face (avoiding the eyes). Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water to reveal your glowing skin.

BRIGHTENING ALMOND STRAWBERRY SCRUB

This pretty scrub is so tasty you might be tempted to turn it into a snack. But it’s a great way to get strawberry’s glowing benefits all over. Combine 3-4 mashed strawberries with 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup almond oil. Mix together and apply in circular motions over your entire body just before showering.

MOISTURIZING STRAWBERRY HONEY MASK
