Fruits and vegetables inside and out

Nature has given us a wide array of fruits and vegetables. We prepare and consume them for nutrition and good health.

Have you ever thought about the fact that if these foods are good for the inside of our bodies, what about the outside? What about skin? Can skin benefit from some of the fruits and vegetables we eat?

Strawberries are delicious almost any way you want to eat them. They not only taste good but are very healthy for you. We do not usually think of them as being in our medicine cabinet or in our makeup bag. Maybe we should. I learned a trick a couple of years ago. Once a strawberry becomes too ripe to eat, mash the ripe strawberry up with a fork and mix with plain yogurt. This makes a great facial mask. Spread on your face and leave on for about 10 minutes. The salicylic acid removes the dead cells from your face and gives a fresh glow to your skin. It makes your face feel very refreshed and smooth. Be sure you are not allergic to strawberries before trying the mask. It can have the same effect as eating them.
