"Exposure to pollution, tobacco and toxins, consumed in excess at this time of year, leaves us vulnerable to free radical attack.

They contain manganese, which has the ability to convert toxins within the skin cells into oxygen, reducing skin damage.

You can even prepare a face mask with the fruity ingredient. A ready to glow mask will have a hydrating effect on the skin and also brighten the face. Just follow these three steps:

- Mash four strawberries, half an avocado, a little bit of lemon juice in a bowl and make a smooth paste.

- Apply on face with a mask brush working into skin. Avoid eye area.

- Leave for up to 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.
