DIY All Natural Banana Facial
If you are sick of blemishes, uneven skin tones or blackheads then I have a face mask for you! Show your face who is boss with this amazing do it yourself mask made of bananas. Stop using harsh chemicals! They really don’t work anyway. Turn to nature! I promise it will work so much better. Most over the counter masks tend to be drying or too oily. There are tons of Vitamins like B6 and Vitamin C inside of bananas so eating them often will help with your complexion as well. I try to make this mask at least once a week to make sure my skin stays smooth and even. This is what you do:
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Mash the banana into a puree in a small mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice and the the honey, and mix throughly. This should make a nice paste. Spread evenly over your entire face, missing your eyes and lips. Let this moisture packed mask settle on your skin for 20-30 minutes. Rinse well with warm water. Repeat with a warm rag.
Your skin will feel amazing. The banana helps to give your skin the nutrition while the honey adds moisture. I love adding lemon to my face care routine because it gives your skin it’s natural glow back. A glow is always a beautiful thing. I am so happy this combination works well together. Don’t forget to drink a lot of water as well when trying to improve your skins complexion. You will notice a huge difference when doing these two things together.

For some reason this didn’t turn into a paste. I did exactly as it said to do but I got a liquidy runny mixture that was difficult to put on my face.
