NOURISHING BANANA MASK
This face mask will gently detoxify and rehydrate your skin, leaving it glowing. Bananas are a good source of potassium, vitamins A, B6 and C – all are wonderfully effective at softening and hydrating the skin.
Our skin has a protective layer to keep water in and foreign substances out. Cold or hot weather, wind, air-conditioning and heating can all damage this layer, making it dry and flaky. When you smear this banana mixture on your face, oil molecules form a temporary waterproof layer over your face, giving your skin cells a chance to rebuild their moisture levels.
- Mash together half a small banana, 1 teaspoon of hemp oil and 1 teaspoon of manuka honey.
- Smooth the mixture over your skin and leave for 10 minutes before gently rinsing it off with warm water. This mask won’t keep, so make it fresh whenever you want to use it.
