This humble yet long dreamed of oil is a beautiful way to support our skins natural health in a powerful way yet is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. When we think of strawberries we think of warm summer days, sun ripened berries, and maybe a dollop or two of whipped cream!
But did you know that strawberry leaf & the beautiful fruit that her trailing vine bare are packed with vitamin C, tannins, skin supporting minerals, & natural sugars?!
*Vitamin C is well known for her antibacterial actions but also her antioxidant abilities that give not only a natural glow but a youthful tightened and toned appearance with consistent use!
*Tannins are astringent by nature which means they support toning even further, shrink up open pores, and fade the appearance of fine lines!
*When we think of sugar we seldom think of it for skin support but externally she is an amazing source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the "glue" that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin.
*Natural sugars also act as a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin which means softer moister skin!
When we infuse these aspects into oils rich in healthy fatty acids our skin drinks deeply with excitement. Especially in a society that abuses facial skin daily with soaps, chlorinated waters, diets lacking in healthy animal fats, cleansers, smoke, dry air, hot sun, and cold winds!
