Strawberries are wonderful to use on your skin, which is why I use them in this Brightening Strawberry Lemon Face Scrub. The high amount of vitamin C in strawberries help to boost skin’s collagen production. Plus, the zinc in strawberries help to zap dead skin cells. The additional of Lemon essential oil helps to detox your skin leaving your skin bright, healthy, and youthful. Let’s get started!
2 tablespoons uncooked white rice
2 ripe strawberries
2 tablespoons organic, full-fat, plain Greek yogurt
2 drops Lemon essential oil
1. In a food processor, blender, or coffee grinder, add uncooked white rice and blend until super fine. These small grains will help to gently exfoliate your skin.
2. In a small bowl, add ripe strawberries (with greens removed) into a bowl. With a fork, gently mash the strawberries.
3. Add Greek yogurt, Lemon essential oil, and ground rice powder. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
4. To use, apply a generous amount to a freshly cleaned face. Rub in a circular motion across face and neck. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes and remove with a warm wash cloth. Pat your skin dry and top with your favorite moisturizer. Enjoy your brighter and more youthful skin. Repeat 2-3 times a week. Mixture can last up to a week in an air-tight container.
