My DIY Food Face Mask
Face masks can be very expensive and you should not have to break the bank to get clear and radiant skin which is why today, I would like to show you how to make your very own face mask for an exceptionally low cost in just three simple steps.
- 1/2 a lime
- 1 banana
- Firstly, peel your banana and thoroughly mash it in a bowl until it is practically lump free.
- Next add around three quarters of a tablespoon of honey to the mashed banana and mix it together.
- Finally, simply squeeze half a lime or lemon into the mixture (it doesn’t really matter what you are using) then mix everything together and pour it into a suitable container.
Each ingredient in this mask is very beneficial to the skin and has its own unique benefits which I have mentioned below.
Banana contains vitamin E and C which promote healthy skin. It also has lots of potassium which moisturises the skin. In addition to this, banana helps to destroy bacteria that causes acne and pimples and it also has lots of anti- aging effects and is known as natures botox.
Honey is naturally antibacterial so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention and it also clarifies the skin and opens up pores which make them easy to unclog. Just like banana, honey is also full of antioxidants which slow down aging.
Lime and lemon both help to fade dark spots and remove dead skin. They also have great antibiotic properties which prevent acne causing bacteria.
I will admit that I do love going and buying a good quality and nicely packaged face mask but this one works really well and not only is it cheaper, you can also make it at any time you like and you know exactly what is in it so you can be sure that you are not putting any nasty chemicals on your face. Although this face mask might not look the most appealing it does work and that’s really all that matters.
