5 ways to use wild strawberries in skincare

 Wild strawberries, also known as Fragaria vesca, are a delicious fruit that can also be used for skincare due to their natural benefits.

Here are five ways you can incorporate wild strawberries into your skincare routine:

  1. Wild Strawberry Face Mask:

    • Mash a handful of wild strawberries into a pulp.
    • Mix the pulp with a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of yogurt.
    • Apply this mixture to your face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes.
    • Rinse with lukewarm water to reveal soft and glowing skin. The antioxidants in wild strawberries can help combat free radicals and promote healthy skin.
  2. Wild Strawberry Exfoliating Scrub:

    • Blend wild strawberries with a small amount of sugar to create a natural exfoliating scrub.
    • Gently massage the scrub onto damp skin in a circular motion.
    • Rinse with water to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother skin.
  3. Wild Strawberry Toner:

    • Crush a handful of wild strawberries and strain the juice.
    • Mix the juice with an equal amount of rose water.
    • Apply this natural toner to your face using a cotton ball to help tighten pores and refresh your skin.
  4. Wild Strawberry Lip Scrub:

    • Mash a few wild strawberries and mix them with a teaspoon of coconut oil and a teaspoon of sugar.
    • Gently rub this mixture on your lips to exfoliate and moisturize.
    • Rinse off for soft and supple lips.
  5. Wild Strawberry Facial Serum:

    • Blend a few wild strawberries with a teaspoon of argan oil or jojoba oil.
    • Transfer the mixture into a clean, dark glass bottle.
    • Apply a few drops of this serum to your face after cleansing and before moisturizing to nourish your skin with vitamins and antioxidants.

Remember to perform a patch test before applying wild strawberry-based skincare products to your face to ensure you don't have any adverse reactions. Additionally, because wild strawberries are perishable, it's best to make these skincare products in small batches and store them in the refrigerator for short-term use.
