Berry Scrub -
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 cup plain unsweetened yogurt
Mash Strawberries and combine with yoghurt. Be sure to keep the amount if ingredients equal -
as the yoghurt balances the ph levels in your face.
Stawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acid, which helps slough off dead skin cells so that new
skin is revealed.
