I really love bananas! I eat them in winter and summer. Mom says there’s nothing useful in them! But I decided to apply them in home cosmetics. As it turns out, bananas still love to apply and cosmetics manufacturers.
Bananas in cosmetics
Large and fashionable cosmetics brands buy bananas in large quantities. Create all kinds of masks, creams, lotions. They are part of shampoos, face and body creams, body souffle. I somehow used this cream, incredible flavor!
Are bananas so good, since they are used by well-known manufacturers of cosmetics? I think it’s good after all. So I decided to try to make at least a couple of masks from a banana. Then she got carried away and decided to make masks not only for the face, but also for the hair.
The benefits of banana face masks
Banana mask is not in vain considered useful. After all, this tropical fruit contains many amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Often, women simply cut the banana in circles and put it on the face. Excellent prevention of wrinkles – known enemies of women!
I use only freshly cut or depressed banana for masks. After all, it is known that this fruit deteriorates very quickly, it turns black and loses its beneficial properties. The yellower the banana, the better. And the more useful it is for our skin!
So what’s the use of banana masks, you ask? Yes, the banana can nourish and moisturize and soothe irritated skin. He softens her perfectly and leaves a pleasant scent on his face. In the benefits of banana masks, I was convinced myself. But, in fact, my face masks:
As you have already guessed, for the preparation of this mask you will need only 2 ingredients: honey and banana. Take a half of a tropical fruit and knead it to a puree state. We add 1 tbsp. l natural honey. Here honey plays the role of moisturizer. After all, it perfectly moisturizes and nourishes our skin.
All should be mixed and applied evenly on the face for 15-20 minutes. Then wash off the mask, as usual, with warm water. The effect after the mask is wonderful: the skin is velvety, fresh. I make such a mask whenever possible. Especially when I buy bananas.
For its preparation it is necessary to take half a banana and egg white. Mash a banana with a fork or in a blender and add whipped protein to it. All must be thoroughly mixed and put a mask on your face.
We wash our face after the mask as usual: with warm or cold water, who likes it. But you can still remove the mask with a cotton pad dipped, for example, in a tea brew or in a decoction of useful herbs.
It is perfect for owners of dry skin. But just recently I read an article that oily skin needs nourishing. That is, no need to constantly dry and scrub it. Strange as it may sound, but it can dry out. I understand that it is necessary to nourish the skin of the face, whatever the skin type.
To the banana puree add 2 tsp. cream, yogurt or sour cream (you can also sour milk or kefir). To this mixture add 1 tbsp. l natural heated honey and 1 tbsp. l flour. But you can not take wheat, but, for example, oatmeal or rice. Mix everything well and apply on face for 15-20 minutes.
I hope to be useful to you. Try these masks, they are really useful and effective!
