This facial was created with normal skin in mind but would definitely be lovely for oily, combination or even dry skin. Strawberries are filled with Vitamin C which plays a vital roll in your skins production of collagen and it helps combat free radicals that can damage and age skin. Watermelon has a high water content so its great for re-hydrating skin. It also contains A, B and C vitamins. Our skin needs Vitamin A to maintain a healthy moisture balance and repair itself. Topically Vitamin A has been shown to reduce signs of aging. While B vitamins have been shown to tone skin and give it an instant glow.

Facial Recipe: Gently mash 2 strawberries with about 1/4 cup of watermelon. Add 1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. of honey to help bind together (for dry skin you may want to add 1/4 tsp jojoba or olive oil). Apply mixture to clean damp skin and leave on for 10-15 min. Rinse with lukewarm water, follow with lavender flower water and light moisturizer.

Beverage Recipe: Follow recipe above but instead of honey add 8 oz of sparkling water or good quality ginger beer (booze optional).
