The benefits

Strawberries are acidic in nature, and they can help remove excess oil and sebum from the skin, while also nourishing and revitalising your skin. Moreover, strawberries contain a host of antioxidants that can protect the skin from oxidative damage which causes skin aging. Honey, too, is great for those who have sensitive skin, since it works for both dry as well as oily, acne-prone skin.
