Ingredients:

1 Ripe Banana

3 Tablespoons Pure Honey

Prep:

Peel and mash the banana with a fork in a mixing bowl. Once the banana doesn’t have big pieces of banana in it and is of a smoother consistency, stir in the honey and mix together. For easier mixing and before adding into the banana paste, warm the honey for a few seconds in the microwave but make sure it’s not hot. Once blended well together, apply the face mask to your clean face and neck. Leave on for 25-30 minutes then rinse off with warm water and a gentle cleanser. Gently pat dry with a soft hand towel and follow with an oil-free moisturizer.

Benefits:

Bananas are not only delicious to eat as a snack but are wonderful for your skin as well! They soothe dry, irritated, and inflamed skin when applied topically to the surface of the skin. The most sensitive of skin types should be able to handle this mask as long as you are not allergic to either ingredient. Bananas are beneficial in fighting acne and are rich in potassium, which when applied directly to the skin, will suffocate the bacteria in cells, forcing blemishes to heal more quickly. Bananas have many anti-bacterial properties which can reduce swelling and infections from other skin issues, including Psoriasis, Eczema, and even painful bug bites. You can even rub the peel of the banana on your skin for these types of skin conditions and it will help soothe your skin tremendously.

Bananas are also loaded with Vitamin C and other anti-oxidants which when applied to the skin (even the peel), can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Blood flow will circulate better and collagen production will be boosted.

Honey is a wonderful antioxidant proven to help reduce impurities from the skin and help battle mild acne. It also helps restore skin’s texture due to its anti-microbial properties, and will help repair skin damage from the sun and daily environments. Enjoy this mask to the fullest…you and your skin will love it!
