Welcome friends to the weekend and to another Face It Friday! Today we show you how to make 3 easy face masks at home using the ultra nutrient rich banana and other kitchen staples.
Bananas are packed full of good for you vitamins like Vitamin A to help reduce dark spots, Vitamin E to protect against harmful UV rays, and Lectin to help fight bacteria.
The first face mask is to help acne prone skin.
2 Tbsp of mashed banana
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of turmeric
Mix together and apply to a clean, dry face. Allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes then rinse with cool water and pat dry.
The second mask is to help brighten dull and tired skin.
2 Tbsp of mash banana
1 Tbsp of honey
Mix together and apply to a clean, dry face and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat to dry.
The third was is to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
2 Tbsp of banana
1 Tbsp of yogurt
1/2 Tbsp of lemon juice
Mix until incorporated and apply to a clean, dry face. Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes then rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Remember that the banana peel is great too! Place the peel under your eyes to help lighten dark circles!
