Need a quick ‘pick-me-up’ for your skin?
Try our nourishing, Banana and Avocado Face Mask recipes that will love all skin types. It only took me about 10 minutes to make this in the kitchen from ingredients I had on hand. I can feel the skin-loving ingredients working their magic on my face as I’m writing this. (mind boggles doesn’t it?) My skin really needed a nourishing moisture boost after spending most of the weekend in that balmy autumn Sydney sun and this is the perfect little pick-me-up.
Bananas are rich in vitamin A, B and E and work as an anti-ageing agent whilst yoghurt will revive dull skin giving it that soft, supple feeling.
Avocado is Mother Nature’s skin moisturiser and the honey in our mask with help give your skin the maximum benefits.
Half a ripe avocado
Half a ripe banana
1 tablespoon plain yoghurt
¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil
2 teaspoons runny honey
- Mash the avocado and banana together to form a paste.
- Mix in the yoghurt, honey and vitamin E oil and stir well.
- Massage the mask onto your face and leave on for 10-20 minutes.
- Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
*You can follow up with your regular moisturiser but on washing this off my skin didn’t need it, it felt beautifully soft, supple and moist.
