Lighten up

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.

Waste not

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.
