Spring Skincare: DIY Strawberry Mask for All Skin Types

DIYStrawberryMask

Spring is slowly making its way around the corner of winter and with the warmer temps, skin might be looking a little lackluster. Buildup from winter, flaky skin from dryness or irritation from all those dry, indoor heating systems can all leave skin less than glowing. But never fear—all you need is an at-home mask, customized for your skin type and easier to make that your morning coffee (or tea).

For this DIY skincare mask, we’re focusing on strawberries, nature’s brightener. These berries are full of antioxidants to fight aging, gentle acids to reduce oil and blemishes, and lightening components to help fade scars and dark spots. So grab a bowl, and get ready to reveal your beautiful spring skin!
