My skin really needs a pick me up so I thought why not make a fresh face mask. I looked up different face mask recipes and found this one to be the best.
The banana has potassium which hydrates and moisturizes your skin, zinc that fights acne caused by germs, vitamin A that heals dry skin, fades dark spots and acne scars. It also has lectine that destroys bacteria that is causes acne and pimples, amino acid that nourishes the skin, vitamine E that protects the skin from UV damage and vitamine C that is god for skin oil control.
The baking soda fights acne and pimples, improves skin complexions and exfoliates the skin.
The lemon is a great source of vitamine C and citric acid which naturally disinfects the skin and removes oil, it also gets ride of dark spots and pigmentation and heals acne.
Banana face mask
2 tablespoons mashed ripe banana
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Mix everything together. Apply on clean skin and let it sit for 10 -15 minutes.
- Clean your face and apply moisturizer.
Apply this 2-3 times a week for the best results. My skin felt really soft and clean of course afterwards. As you can see, I have been breaking out this week so I will be using this mask in the next couple days. So hopefully this mask will help.
Update: my skin got better and cleared up, you can’t keep it in the fridge because it does brown really fast unfortunately so you do need to make the mask fresh.
