Tipsy Tuesday (#169)

So, I definitely haven't grown enough strawberries to make jam yet...

Tip #169

but I might have enough to make myself beautiful!

Mix 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, 1 tablespoon whole milk, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a blender to make a smooth paste. Apply to your face and neck; leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
The antioxidants in the strawberries help diminish the signs of aging and the milk fat is an awesome moisturizer. A perfect way to use up those too ripe berries or to use the pitiful 5-6 that your gardening efforts yield...

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!**

Hmm, interesting! I buy strawberries from the grocery store that often go bad very quickly...good to know they have an alternate use!!

Great idea!

I like Jill's idea of using the ones that go bad before I can eat them.

Have you tried this yet? As soon as you try it, and you don't get any bad side effects, I'll do it too! Deal?

Pretty cool!!! I love finding recipes for body/face care!

How many strawberries have you grown so far? Do they taste good?
