Strawberry is packed with skin-friendly nutrients that make it the ideal ingredient for skin care recipes. It is one of the best sources of vitamin C, which is vital for collagen synthesis. Furthermore, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and a natural skin lightening agent.
In addition, to vitamin C, strawberry contains a number of phytonutrients with antioxidant properties. It is especially rich in ellagic acid an antioxidant that prevents sun damage. Moreover, the acidic content of strawberry helps in tightening the skin pores and inhibits growth of acne-causing bacteria. Salicylic acid in the berry, by breaking down the dead skin cells, helps in exposing the clearer and brighter younger skin layer.
Hence, a strawberry mask is a versatile skin care product that delays skin aging and gives you smooth, fairer and glowing skin.
