Heavy Cream and Strawberry Facial Mask

This mask combines the properties of being exfoliant and moisturizer. The exfoliant properties are inherited by the presence of  alpha-hydroxy acids present in strawberry and molasses, and the heavy cream is already moisturizing by its fat content. You will need:

- 4 to 5 very ripe, medium size strawberries
- 2 teaspoons heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon molasses

Rinse the strawberries in lukewarm water, and dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. In a small bowl, mash the fruit with a fork. Add the cream and molasses, mixing well. Leave on for 20 minutes

People with sensitive or sunburned skin might find the strawberries irritating. Test on a small patch of skin first to assess your skin's reaction.

You can try whatever fruit known to have effects on the skin like, avocado, bananas, pears...etc.
