This winter has been never ending, I feel every time I look outside and I see my hill of snow getting larger and larger. I've been pretty much indoors and hibernating from this brutal weather. We have the fireplace on from dawn to late night and sometimes more than that. All this heat although its a blessing is causing my skin to dry up like sandpaper. I need some cool moisture and looked around my kitchen for the perfect ingredient. A banana!
Bananas are rich in Vitamin A and Potassium which make a perfect nutrient for supple soft skin. It has Vitamin B that helps with moisturizing the skin and corrects the blemishes. Due to sun damage the face is the most prone to pigmentation and discoloration often occurs. Banana helps with lightening the skin so an even tone appearance is achieved. An added benefit is the Vitamin E in this wonder fruit, it tightens the skin for reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A organic Botox without the needles. I love it because it not only heals but corrects the skin.
This mask is very easy to make and apply. Take 1/2 of a small ripe banana. Mash it up with a fork. Apply to a cleansed dry face with a brush in circular motions. Leave on face for 15 minutes. Wash with cold water with your favorite face cleanser. Make sure all of the residue is wiped off otherwise you may have some banana odor which is not the most attractive. Follow up with your favorite face lotion. You will notice a tightening appearance which is the natural Botox in the Banana, that will leave your face moisturized and defined!
