Winter’s harsh weather can be hard on skin, leaving it dry, dull and even raw. Homemade face masks can restore skin to its springtime glory and—better yet—can be made with ingredients from your kitchen.
To slough away dead skin cells and restore moisture, try this banana facial mask recipe. This rejuvenating facial only requires two ingredients: banana and honey. The acids in the creamy banana core slough away dead skin and leave you with a glowy complexion, while the honey blends the mask into a smooth consistency and helps your skin hold in moisture.
Choose a banana that’s turning on the brown side. The ripened banana will add extra moisture to the mask. Plus, that means no wasted food for you eco-minded beauties.
Mash the banana and honey together in a bowl.
Using your fingers, pat the mixture onto your face. Be sure to avoid your eye area.
Let the mask work it’s skin-rejuvenating magic for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse.
