Fresh Fruit Facial – Strawberries

Tested out a new DIY fresh fruit facial for a friend teaching an aromatherapy class!  I feel more pressure when I am sharing a recipe – and honestly, (sometimes working with fresh fruit can take a little work to get the right consistency), but this one worked.  Phewwww….

This fruit facial recipe is a great way to exfoliate and soothe your skin! Yogurt has natural anti-bacterial properties, and I use a thick, rich yogurt to blend with natural fruit acids.

Strawberry + Yogurt Facial:

  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 4-5 strawberries
  • 3-4 drops lemon essential oil

Yogurt – natural source of lactic acid, to smooth and exfoliate skin.

Grapeseed Oil – rich source of anti-oxidants

Strawberries – natural source of salicylic acid

Lemon essential oil– anti-bacterial and astringent

Blend all ingredients together until smooth.  I use a Magic Bullet, which does a great job blending, but any small blender will do.  Apply the fruit and yogurt facial to a freshly cleansed face, and leave on for 10 minutes.  You may feel a slight tingling from the fruit acids at work on your skin!  Cleanse thoroughly with a warm washcloth and apply sunscreen.
