Health Benefits of Strawberries

5 Beauty Tips with Strawberries

Did you know that strawberries are actually not fruits as their seeds are on the outside. In fact strawberry plants are runners and are not grown by seeds. They are members of the rose family and have been grown in the wild for centuries.

Benefits of Strawberries

Strawberries contain antioxidants to combat the damaging effects of free radicals. They are packed with vitamins C and contain many important enzymes and flavonoids. They are a good source of manganese, pantothenic acid, vitamin B1 and iodine. Strawberries also protect the heart by increasing HDL cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer. Many researchers have found that strawberries also help to regulate our blood sugar to decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes as well as to prevent breast, cervical and colon cancer.

Strawberries are not only delicious, but they are also proven beauty enhancers.

The Salicylic acid removes dead cells from the face while tightening the pores, hence they make excellent facemask. Blend some natural yogurt with a handful of strawberries and apply the mixture onto your face. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse well.

Strawberry juice has skin lightening properties also. They are effective in removing age spots and freckles. Squeeze some juice and apply over blemishes with a cotton ball. Rinse off after 10 minutes. You will notice the blemishes get lighter after a few tries.

Strawberries make an excellent foot scrub. Mash a handful of strawberries and mix them with a few drops of glycerine and grounded oats. Scrub your foot gently with this mixture to exfoliate dead cells and rough skin.

Last but not least, strawberries can be mixed with tea tree oil to treat fungal growth on the skin or even the scalp. In fact, they are effective to get rid of dandruff due to its antifungal properties.
