Given that they have a high concentration of vitamin C, strawberries are a great way to lighten any acne scars. Blend or mash five strawberries until they turn into pulp, before adding two tablespoons of Greek yogurt to the brightening concoction. Alternatively, you can add boiling water to two tablespoons of oatmeal till it takes on a sludgy consistency, then mix in the strawberry pulp to make a more soothing mask.
The next time you cut off the stems of the fruit, don’t throw them away! Instead, rub the little bits of flesh clinging onto the stems all over your face – the fruit’s natural acids will help to gently slough away dead cells.
