Strawberry Moon Mask
M🌘🌚ns and strawberries 🍓 happen to be two of my most favorite things! Every June we have a strawberry moon that represents the peak season for picking strawberries. Tonight, I’m going to celebrate by relaxing out on the deck with a home-made face mask, a flute of champagne, and maybe some Nick Drake playing in the background.
When I set out to Whole foods yesterday I had no idea that the strawberry mini moon was today! Anyways,It was on my shopping 🛒 list to pick up strawberries, young coconuts 🌴 , and avocado 🥑 . I guess you could say that I was feeling a bit tropical 🌴 🐠. You might be trying to figure out what a rambutan is right now though but I’ll get to that in a bit.
So, I had already planned on making a strawberry and some sort of exotic or tropical mask this month and It just so happened that I’d get around to it today. I don’t want to keep you too long so briefly I’ll explain the ingredients and their benefits.
🍓 Strawberries 🍓
This fruit, that’s right strawberries are a fruit not an actual berry and its loaded with vitamins C & E! I can’t help but keep a fresh bowl of these around when it starts to warm up.
This fruit hails from south east Asia, I hadn’t even heard of it until I went to wholefoods the other day! By the way, I think its their spotlight fruit or something like that. It looks red and prickly but it’s pretty soft. And if you’ve ever had a Lychee then you know what a rambutan tastes like. Sweet and floral.

How It’s Made
If you decide to use the oatmeal, which has moisturizing, soothing and firming property’s for the skin you should refine it first by putting it into the food processor or blender. Once you’ve done that, transfer the powdered oatmeal to a separate container and set aside.
Add your strawberries and Rambutan to the food processor or blender and blend until it resembles pudding. Now you can slowly add your oatmeal and honey if you wish. This mask smells so divine you can obviously do this mask at anytime these fruits are available to you, I just thought today would be cool to try it. And yes It’s 💯% safe to eat!
*Use only fresh and clean fruits 🍓
*Peeling the skin off the strawberries is recommended to help eliminate any possible bacteria on the fruit.
*use clean and sanitized utensils and appliances
*Do not even attempt to try this if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
