Benefits Of This Strawberry, Banana Honey and Yogurt Mask:
Strawberries are very rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant which is known to stimulate the production of collagen. Vitamin C because it is an antioxidant scavenges free radicals thus slowing the aging process making Vitamin C masks anti-aging. Vitamin C is found in many skin care products for it’s ability to minimise fine lines and wrinkles and reduce blemishes and acne.
Omega-3 fatty acids are another beneficial ingredient in strawberries – it is surprising to some people that it is not only found in fish oils, but strawberries as well! Omega-3 reduces inflammation in the body and skin, and can help rehydrate dry flaky skin (it is particularly good for those dealing with Psoriasis, Eczema, and Dermatitis). It helps keep the skin looking young and fresh.

Strawberries are wonderful for giving your skin a beautiful healthy glue. Strawberries also help lighten the skin and it great for application around the eye area to lighten dark circles.
