Strawberry Cleanser

To start off the Berry Week recipes, I felt I should share this Strawberry Cleanser with you. It's a recipe I believe we should all have, I simply couldn't justify keeping it to myself! It's a fairly well known fact that berries are packed full of antioxidants. Not only do they boost your immune system, but they do wonders for your skin. I envy whoever relized you didn't just have to eat strawberries to better yourself, but simply rubbing them all over your face works too! This cleanser leaves your face feeling clean and truly glowing. When I say glowing, I mean soft and supple with the glow of youth! Do a before and after picture, you'll see a difference.

Strawberry Facial Cleanser
4-5 fresh strawberries (frozen work fine, but you'll need to thaw and use 6)
3-4 tbs witch hazel

Stick your strawberries in the blender and blend until smooth. Add your witch hazel and blend for a few seconds. Now, go into the bathroom and generously apply to your face and gently rub into your face. You'll notice the seeds will be gently removing any dead skin you might have. After you've massaged for a few minutes, just rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
This is a great replacement for any cleanser and if stored covered in the fridge, it will last for 3-5 days :)
