Strawberries contain an antioxidant compound called ellagic acid that can help maintain elastic fibers and prevent sagging skin, as well as fight damage caused by free radicals and prevent wrinkles. Strawberries have biotin that strengthens hair and nails.
Strawberry's skin benefits are also provided by its vitamin C content and the presence of ellagic acid (a hydroxybenzoic acid).
By combating the action of free radicals, vitamin C helps to delay premature aging. The vitamin is still fundamental to the process of synthesis of collagen, a protein that ensures better firmness for the skin. Ellagic acid also prevents the appearance of wrinkles caused by excessive skin exposure to UV-B rays. To enjoy the benefits of strawberry on your skin, just make a strawberry mask. Knead 3 or 4 strawberries and add a little oatmeal, mix until it forms a paste. Rinse the skin and let it act for 20 minutes, rinse your face well. Repeat the operation 2 times a week.
