Why Honey?
The light fruit acid of the strawberries reveal fresher looking skin. Honey is a powerful skin care ingredient: It’s mild antiseptic that can help with blemishes and breakouts. It contains mild alpha hydroxy acids that can help exfoliate dead skin cells. These acids also increase elasticity, balance out oily skin, stimulate collagen production, and minimize lines and wrinkles, making you look younger. Also, honey contains amino acids that help the skin retain its essential moisture.
