Natural Anti Aging Banana Mask for Your Face and Hair
natural mask for your face and hair
Give your skin (and hair) a boost with an anti aging banana face mask.
Bananas contain beneficial amounts of iodine, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and vitamins A, B (folic acid), E, and F.
This makes them one of the most skin and hair nourishing fruits available.
Simple Banana Face Mask
Mash 1/4 to 1/2 banana until it becomes
soft and creamy.
Spread the banana mix all over your face
and neck and leave it on for 15-20 minutes.
Rinse it off with warm water followed by a
splash of cold water.
Gently pat your skin dry.
You can add a small amount of honey, yoghurt, milk or olive oil if you want
For example you will need:
1/2 ripe banana
3 tablespoons yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
Put the banana, yogurt and honey in a blender and mix until creamy. This creamy consistency helps to keep the face mask moist.
Yogurt is known to be a natural exfoliator, and honey is a moisturizer.
As a natural exfoliator, the yogurt will help to remove any dead skin cells, while the honey and bananas work together as anti-aging moisturizers that will smooth your skin and reduce your wrinkles.
This combination works well to exfoliate, heal and moisturize all at the same time, and this rejuvenating face mask is quick and simple to make.
You can keep this mixture fresh in a refrigerator for about 6 hours, so you may find it easier to make in advance and have it ready when you want to use it. You will feel the benefits more if you use this banana mask 3 times a week.
Face Mask Benefits:
Helps really dry skin
Nourishes aging skin
Promotes younger looking skin
You can use up over ripe bananas that are turning soft and dark because they are more sugary - many alpha hydroxy acids are fruit and sugar cane based, so it makes sense that over ripe bananas will smooth and exfoliate your skin better.
You can actually feel the skin on your face tightening up as the banana starts to dry.
Never throw away over ripe bananas again! The mushier and darker they are the better.
Banana Hair Mask
A banana mask is good for your hair too it will make it bouncy and soft and it will smell lovely.
Blend the banana in a hand blender so it's not lumpy and smooth it through your hair, especially the ends, then tie your hair up, cover it with a plastic wrap and jump in the shower to let the hot steamy atmosphere activate it while you have your shower.
Rinse the hair mask out while you’re still in the shower, then shampoo and condition as usual.
Make sure you rinse your hair well or you might have little bits of banana left behind.
Do not let it dry on your hair because it will set like cement and you will have a difficult job getting it out.
There’s no waste either because if you have any left over from doing your face and hair, you can always just eat it!
