DIY Banana Face Mask

Bananas are packed with ingredients for great skin, vitamin A to fade dark spots and blemishes and smooth out rough skin, vitamin B to reduce dryness, vitamin E to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and potassium to moisturize and hydrate.

So the fruit makes a perfect all-natural, homemade face mask that leaves skin looking and feeling softer.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup plain yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons of honey (a natural acne remedy)
  • 1 medium banana
  • A container

 

Method:

Step 1: Mash up a medium-sized banana into a smooth paste.

Step 2: Mix in yoghurt and honey.

Step 3: Gently apply it to your face and neck and let is set for 20 minutes.

Step 4: Rinse off with cold water.
