A little while ago my sister’s, some friends and myself had a pamper party at home and it was awesome. How lovely to have some treatments done in the comfort and privacy of your own home. One of the things that we did was make our own face masks and the honey, oatmeal, banana mask is the one I used and the results were fantastic!
Ingredients: 1 soft medium banana
1/3 – 1/2 cup of oatmeal
1 tablespoon of honey
Mash the banana, add in the oatmeal and mix well. Add the honey and mix. Apply to your face and neck and relax for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with warm water and reveal your soft, supple, smooth and glowing skin!
If you have some time, do try and make this mask. The results are amazing and there is an immediate difference in your skin. Lovely.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the benefits to be found in these ingredients:
Banana moisturizers, acts as a gentle exfolliant, fights acne, prevents signs of aging and provides relief from sunburn.
Honey has antibacterial properties (great for acne!) as well as antiseptic properties. Honey soaks up impurities in the skin and moisturises at the same time all while it combats the signs of aging (win!)
Oatmeal opens up the pores to flush out dirt, treats mild skin irritations, exfolliates, treats itching and has anti-inflammitory properties.
All this skin loving goodness can be found in our kitchens, how great is that?! Have any of you ladies tried this recipe or similar types? Please let me know how it was!
