There are a lot of health benefits from strawberries. Strawberries are a great herbal skin care remedy to use. Strawberries are beneficial to your skin, and help maintain a healthy appearance. Aging skin happens when free radicals attack the body. Free radicals attack, when you don't get enough antioxidants into your diet. That is when skin problems can occur. To maintain serious skin care, you always must start with a good diet. Strawberries is an example of a fruit very rich in antioxidants, that help promote anti-aging.

There are other reasons why you should use strawberries for skin care. They are very high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is the main vitamin found in most skin creams and face washes. Vitamin C plays the role in the production of collagen. Vitamin C promotes anti-aging, and helps reduce wrinkles, along with blemishes.

Strawberries aren't just quite high in vitamin C, they contain a high amount of minerals and other vitamins as well. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in strawberries. Typically found in fish oils, which are very healthy for your skin. When it comes to organic fruits, there's not many as good, or better than strawberries.

I wasn't aware of a lot of these strawberry benefits. We have a shortage this year in Florida because of the freezes, so I'll be using them sparingly.
