To get your skin in tip top shape for the big day, what could be better than a homemade strawberry face and body scrub.
Ingredients:
2 pureed strawberries
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 tbsp of Vitamin E oil or pour out the liquid of 1 Vitamin E capsule.
2 tbsp of sugar
Mix all the ingredients together. In the shower, rub all over your body for a great exfoliating experience.

Raspberry honey face mask
The red raspberries contain loads of vitamin C which is essential for maintaining healthy clear glowing wrinkle free skin. The honey helps moisturize your skin because it contains natural moisturizers in it, and it helps fight acne and prevent it because it contains natural antibodies in it that kill the germs that cause the acne in the first place. The rolled oats help absorb unwanted oils and impurities from the skin while also lightly exfoliating it. These are the reasons why this is a beneficial facial mask for combination skin types.

Mix 1/2-cup pureed raspberries
½ cup honey
½ cup rolled oats
