Strawberries and yogurt are scrumptious not only for the taste buds, but also for the skin.
Strawberries are rich in vitamins, especially Vitamin C which is a strong anti-oxidant that helps protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are produced naturally by the skin cells but are bad for the skin and contribute to aging skin. Anti-oxidants help to neutralize these free radicals and get rid of them. It is therefore awesome for keeping the skin healthy. Vitamin C is also helps to keep the skin soft by improving it’s elasticity and helps to reduce age spots.
Plain yogurt soothes and softens the skin. It also contains lactic acid which helps to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin.
Now onto the good stuff!
