Want whiter teeth? Then try strawberries. It’ as simple as rubbing the berries back and forth on your teeth and rinsing.
Manage oily skin
Oily skin is more prone to acne due to clogging of the pores. Make a strawberry mask, apply it on your face and get rid of the excess oils.
Exfoliate your skin
How often do you exfoliate your skin? It’s advisable that you do it at least twice a week. It’s even more beneficial if you have acne or blackheads. To come up with a homemade facial scrub, mix sugar, strawberries and olive oil. You can also use this exfoliator for soft and smooth lips.
Get rid of puffy eyes
Didn’t get enough sleep? Don’t worry. No one will ask you why you got puffy and dark circles around your eyes because strawberries will do a perfect job. Just like you’d do with the cucumbers, slice the berry into half and place it on your eyelids. After 15 minutes, your eyes will be looking fresh and awake.
