We all know that a healthy and balanced diet with regular exercise is key in having great skin, but truth be told sometimes we’re so busy and especially with the holidays (food overdose) we haven’t really had the chance to hit the gym or keep a proper skin care regimen. Our skin is looking dry, dull and just missing that radiant glow which we all love. The following mask is super easy and is great for both women and men. While having your morning coffee and getting ready to head out into the cold try to apply this super hydrating mask to your skin, in order to give your skin the moisture needed. Say no to thirsty skin! (thirsty skin over produces oil thus leading to breakouts and it also speeds up the aging process)
All you need is a banana and some honey.
As we have explained before, honey is a humectant. It’s super soothing and has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It reduces swelling and really treats wounds and scars.
Bananas are loaded with vitamins and minerals, nourishing our skin and increasing its elasticity. Vitamin A present in bananas restores our moisture, so this is a major plus.
How to make your mask.
Remember you will apply this mask to clean skin. All you need to do is mash a banana and mix it with honey.
Apply on your skin and let it sit for 15 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Follow with your favorite moisturizer and your set!
This mask is great for both women and men and is one of those winter pampering treatments which benefits all skin types from normal to acne prone skin.
