With strawberries currently in season, you can do more than just eat these wonderful berries on the cheap. If you’ve ever got any extra strawberries in your possession, try some of these great tips from care2 for incorporating them into your beauty routine:

  1. For Puffy Eyes: place a few strawberry slices under your eyes and relax for 10 minutes or so. Be sure to moisturize after you remove the strawberries.
  2. For Acne: mash together 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries and 1 tbsp of sour cream. Apply this mixture to your face and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
  3. For Whitening Teeth: rub some fresh strawberry pulp directly onto your teeth to gently clean and remove stains.
  4. For Oily Skin: mix together equal parts fresh strawberries and plain, unsweetened yogurt and apply to face. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse.
