Why buy acne products when you use strawberries? Strawberries are a natural source of salicylic acid which is found in most over-the-counter acne medicines, according to Janice Cox, the author of "Natural Beauty at Home." This is Cox's recipe. The yogurt is great for soothing skin.


  • 1/4 cup strawberries (fresh, not frozen please)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or non-flavored yogurt


Let both the strawberries and the yogurt come to room temperature (or close). Put the strawberries and yogurt in a blender to combine or mash together the strawberries and yogurt with a fork (the blender works best). Spread on face and wash after 10-15 minutes.
