Honey and Banana Face Mask

With winter in full force now, I can’t be the only one suffering from dry, dull skin with occasional flakiness. It’s not a fun thing, and even though I now have an AMAZING skin care regime, I love pampering myself with home spa treatments – like this lovely moisturizing Honey and Banana Face Mask.

Banana and Honey Face Mask | All natural and so good for your skin

What’s great about this mask is that you can change it up by adding extra ingredients to target specific skin issues you may have. But at its simplest, it is a great all-around moisturizing face mask that will leave your skin feeling and looking younger, softer and dewier than ever.

Banana is full of nutrients for your skin, while honey provides the intense moisture.

Just remember that this mixture is quite loose and drippy, so make sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty OR drape a towel around yourself before applying.

Ingredients:

1 Medium Ripe Banana
2 tbsp. Honey

Instructions:

Using a food processor, combine banana and honey until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, mash with a fork until smooth. This will take longer, but it will get there.

Make sure to use the mixture within an hour, as it will start to go a bit rancid after that. you can easily use a face brush to “paint” it onto your face, but I find using your fingers is much better. Simply grab some up in your fingertips and gently but firmly massage into your face.

It’s also important to remember to make sure your face is clean and free of makeup before applying the mask. It’s by no means a cleansing mask, but it’s great for after an exfoliation or deep clean, as it helps to add moisture back into your skin.

Leave the mask on for around 20 minutes for best results. Then, use lukewarm water to gently rinse it away. You want to make sure you’ve cleared the banana mask, but you don’t want to overclean and remove the nutrients from it.

Remember to throw away any unused mask when you’re done. Or eat it. It’s pretty tasty. But whatever you do, don’t save it. Natural facemasks can usually keep in the fridge for a few days, but more often they are forgotten. So to be safe, make a new batch each time.

Enjoy!
