The strawberry is one of the most anticipated fruits after the winter season – we long for their taste and we only wait until they appear in the markets and in our gardens. Strawberries are not only delicious, but also have a positive effect on our beauty!
The season for strawberries lasts from May to July. Although we mainly associate them with a sweet holiday taste, it turns out that they also have great beauty properties. This is all thanks to the valuable ingredients that this fruit contains, and these are:
In drugstores we can find scrubs, masks, extracts or oils with the addition of strawberries. Each of these cosmetics is suitable for daily care.
Strawberries are considered a superfruit because they are low in calories. It is an ideal fruit for people watching their weight. Eating a lot of vegetables and fruits has a positive influence on everyone and we should include them in our diet, especially in summer. Compared to relatively high-calorie banana or avocado, strawberry consists practically of water only. We can eat them at will without worrying about calories! Moreover, water transports nutrients, hydrates, rehydrates, facilitates digestion, and is a solvent for vitamins and minerals. Strawberries also contain pectin, which is responsible for slowing the release of glucose into the bloodstream, preventing sugar spikes. They have a beneficial effect on the intestinal bacterial flora.
Not only our skin and body will benefit from strawberries. They also have a positive effect on our hair. Thanks to the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals, they make our hair shine, moisturize it and even help in the fight against dandruff. In addition, vitamin B1 improves their condition. Strawberry hair cosmetics on the market include not only masks and conditioners but also rinses, which make your hair shiny and nourished from root to tip
You can prepare your own strawberry cosmetics. One of the easiest and most effective cosmetics with strawberries, which we can prepare ourselves, is a mask – we can use it both for the face and hair. The only things we need are strawberries, honey and yogurt. Crush the fruit and mix with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of yogurt. After thoroughly combining the ingredients, we apply the mixture to our face and rinse with lukewarm water after 15 minutes. If we prefer to use the mask on the hair, we increase the ingredients proportionally (depending on the length of the hair), apply to the entire length of the hair, leave for 15-20 minutes, then rinse
