-- Strawberries are high in antioxidants, including vitamin C which plays an integral role in the formation of collagen. They help combat premature aging, wrinkles, and even protect against broken capillaries under the skin's surface. The high amount of vitamin C found in strawberries also helps to lighten the skin. One serving of strawberries has over 50% of your daily value of vitamin C. When used topically, this amount of vitamin C can help to reduce the appearance of dark spots while also helping to make dull skin look more fresh and radiant.
Did you know that strawberries can also whiten teeth? By mashing and applying strawberries directly onto teeth, you have a natural alternative to today's teeth-whitening kits that contain chemicals like peroxide and titanium dioxide.
Crush the strawberry to a pulp, then mix with the baking soda until blended. Use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth. Leave on for 5 minutes, then brush thoroughly with toothpaste to remove the berry–baking soda mix. So, the next time you are posing for the camera, "Say Strawberr-eez!"
