When I was a young teenager I loved trying new face masks. Each weekend my friends and I would gather at someone’s house for a slumber party and make various concotions to slather our faces in while we did our nails and talked about the latest drama like only 13 year olds can! I can’t tell you how many egg white masks or hot oil treatments those days had-primping was my thing!
As a grownup with a bit less primping time on my hands I’ve had to pare down my beauty routine but homemade masks are still part of my repertoire. My favorite mask is this easy to make Honey Banana DIY Face Mask for it’s double duty magic! The banana is soothing for my dry, sensitive skin while the honey clarifies and brightens!
- 1/2 banana
- 2 tbsp honey
Simply mashed the banana in a small bowl with a fork until fairly smooth.
Add the honey and mix well. Does anyone else love the smell of honey? I’d wear it as perfume if I could!!
When you’re all mixed apply liberally to your face (it might get messy, I do this over the sink!) Allow the mask to dry for 30 minutes then wash off with a gentle cleanser. You’ll be surprised how refreshed your skin feels afterwards!
Do you have a favorite DIY face mask you like to make? I love that this one is all natural and you probably have everything you need int he kitchen right now!
