D.I.Y. Spa Treatment: Strawberry Exfoliator

If you are as big of fan of strawberries as I am, this DIY strawberry exfoliator is a treat you're sure to love. I always keep strawberries around and since they can get quite costly, especially in the winter. I get really bummed when they go soft before I've had the chance to gobble them up. Here's a strawberry indulgence that can save you from throwing money right down the drain!

  • Take out a mixing bowl and fill it with eight to ten ripe or over-ripe strawberries.
  • Squash the strawberries until they become soft and mushy. Then combine two tablespoons of olive oil and one teaspoon of coarse salt until you have a paste.
  • Next, massage the paste onto your body, focusing on any super-dry or dull looking skin areas. Rub well and then rinse off with warm water. Your skin will feel instantly softer, smoother and shinier!

Mine have a day or two of life on them so if I forget to eat them I will do this. My elbows need some love.

Interesting tip. I have some strawberries in the fridge that are just about on their last day. I think I am going to try this with them!

Ocassionally I have them long enough to 'go bad' - this would be a wonderful thing to do rather than tossing them :}
