We love seasonal fruits especially when they come loaded with nutrients that help our skin. Strawberry is one such fruit that is packed with antioxidants that help reduce the UV damage on the skin. I mean, while the sunscreen does its job, you also need to eliminate the previous damage, right? It not only reduces the UV damage but also helps in cleansing and toning the skin which in turn improves the complexion for a brighter glow. It is packed with natural AHAs that helps in removing the dead skin cells making it one of the best ingredients to use as scrubs and natural exfoliants. 

Here’s how you can use strawberries in your skincare routine:

2 teaspoons of coconut oil

1. Start by mixing all the dry ingredients in a bowl and all the wet in the other. 

2. Mix them both together slowly to void any lumps.
