But if you decide to make your own, here’s a simple recipe to prepare a strawberry facial mask made with inexpensive ingredients.

What you need: Rosewater & 3 large strawberries

Mash 3 large strawberries and apply the pulp to your face as a mask. Leave on for 10 minutes so your face soaks up the nutrients. After time is up, wash your face off with rosewater. Since strawberries are rich in vitamin C, your face will appear fresh and luminous. Apply facial masks once a week. Enjoy!
