Kill your strawberry with strawberries

Have a nose with blackheads so annoying that it has become a strawberry? A strawberry may help, literally ;)

Heard of AHAs?

Well, strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which help to lift off dead skin cells, unplug pores and remove blackheads.
Your skin becomes youthful as a result.

They are also rich in antioxidants like ellagic acid and Vitamin C.

Antioxidants are so important because they essentially terminate cell damaging reactions in the body, slowing down the aging process in your skin.
