Beauty Secrets From The Garden - Part 1

June 12, 2013

I was so happy to see the sunshine instead of rain. Especially since it had been raining so much. The weather report promised rain for three more days. Oh well I won’t complain. 

I went out to the garden to see how all the plants were doing. I finally got everything planted. I can see some lettuce starting to come up. I know it’s a bit late for our region, but better late than never. Aside from all the wonderful recipes that I plan to make (or dream of creating), some of this produce would be excellent for the skin.

First we have strawberries:


These little beauties are sweet, juicy, and great for you. Full of vitamins, minerals, and fibre they can be considered a super food. They are so delicious too. Strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acids making them an ideal choice for a fresh exfoliating mask.  They are also high in vitamin C which helps brighten dull tired skin not to mention defending against free radical damage.

Strawberry mask:

8-10 large fresh strawberries rinsed well under cool running water.

1 tbsp honey

 Before trying any mask, spot test first on a small area first (the inside of your forearm is a good spot) to see if you develop a reaction. If you do, do not apply to your face. This could mean you’re allergic.

 If you haven’t any allergies, then mash the berries in a small bowl, with a fork. Add the honey and mix well. Cleanse your face thoroughly and rinse well then pat dry with a soft towel. Apply the mask and lay back comfortably. Allow the mask to work for 15-20 min. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry again. Follow with a light moisturizer.
