Our skin has a protective barrier of fats that clump together and create a waterproof layer to keep water in and foreign substances out. Cold or hot weather, wind, air-conditioning and heating can damage this layer of skin, making it dry and flaky. When you smear the banana mask on your face, the fat molecules in the banana form a temporary waterproof layer over your face, giving your skin cells a chance to rebuild their moisture levels.
This is a great mask for wrinkles and smells yummy. Making your own moisturizing banana face mask is easy, less expensive than the shop brought face masks and fun.
- Mash the banana until creamy.
- Apply on face and leave for 15-20 minutes.
- Rinse off with warm water, pat skin dry.
- Enjoy your soft skin!
