What advantages does the scrub, which consists of just the acids?
The whole trick is that even the usual mix of strawberries and yogurt has a peeling effect because strawberry contains salicylic acid and yogurt contains lactic acid.
We use yogurt for face scrub in this case due to the content of the acid missing in strawberries.
Benefits of Homemade Strawberry & Yogurt Scrub
Adding some oatmeal to the mixture is the easy way to get an excellent homemade strawberry yogurt scrub.
If you remember, all the acid for masks and scrubs for face are used primarily for one purpose, for peeling.
- This scrub is good for all skin types especially for aging skin.
- Yogurt nourishes the skin.
- Vitamin C containing in strawberries helps to produce collagen needed for skin elasticity.
- Acids and oatmeal work as skin exfoliator.
However, we have to remember that strong concentration of acids or if you got allergic skin you need to be very careful with a combination of various mixes of home products.
- 2-3 strawberries
- 2 Tbsp of natural yogurt
- 2 Tbsp of oatmeal
Grind oats in the coffee grinder for 3 seconds. Add strawberry mixture and yogurt.
Stir all ingredients thoroughly.
Spread scrub onto your face using forefingers in a gentle pinching massaging motion. Wait 15 minutes.
Roll up the mixture from the center to the edges. Wash the face with warm water to open pores and with cold water to close pores.
If you have sensitive skin and strawberries get you pain or burning, try the yogurt honey face mask. Lactic acid dissolves dead cells of the skin epithelium, and honey nourishes the skin. Probably it could be much more better & enjoyable.
