Banana face mask for lightening the skin

This face mask is good for lightening the skin, removal of blemishes, dark spot removal, brightening of dull skin. There are other powerful ingredients that made this face mask a more effective one. The mixture include honey and lemon juice with banana. Honey terminates bacteria, eliminates dark spots and has skin lightening properties. This is the more reason it has to be added to the mixture to create an effective result. Lemon juice, on the other hand, contains citric acid which evens out discoloration. 

Mash a ripe banana into smooth lumps and mix with one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of lemon juice, leave the mixture to sit on the skin for 15-20 minutes and then wash with a mild soap and pat dry with a towel.

Banana face mask for treating acne and pimples

This is a formulation to treat pimples and acne with the help of banana being mixed with other 'fighting acne' ingredients like baking soda, turmeric. Check my previous post on turmeric to understand more about the benefits of turmeric on the skin. 
Mash a ripe banana into a smoothie, add half tablespoon of baking soda and half tablespoon of turmeric powder, then mix up the ingredients very well. If you have a very thick paste, you can neutralise with little water. Apply on the face with a makeup brush, wait for that for a while then wash off and pat dry your face. You should try to apply with a makeup brush to avoid getting yellow stains on your fingers. The mixture may sting you a little but never panic, it is because of the presence of the baking soda in the mixture. When washing the mixture on your face, do not wash with soap. Apply moisturizer after drying, this is to prevent you in producing excess oils. 

Banana mask for eliminating wrinkles

Banana naturally has nutrients that diminish the appearance of wrinkles, leaving the skin in a glowing and younger outlook. To empower the banana as a face mask that fights wrinkles, orange juice and yoghurt must be added. 
Mix the banana smoothie with one tablespoon of yoghurt and one tablespoon of orange juice. Apply on the face, wash off with soap and pat dry thereafter. Apply the second time with a more thicker paste, you can achieve a thicker paste by adding more thick yoghurt or banana smoothie. Let it sit on your face and watch as it works wonders on your face. Rinse with cold water in order to tighten your skin pores. Apply a good moisturizer of your choice and you will be suprised with your supple skin.
