Do your kids ever do this to you? At the grocery store, they ask for bananas. You say no because they never eat the bananas. They beg harder. Then, a week goes by and you’ve got this situation
There is something you can do with those old bananas; PUT THEM ON YOUR FACE!! Bananas are loaded with Vitamin A (Retinol anyone?) and there are tons of ways to use bananas in your beauty routine.
This recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 Tablespoons of mashed bananas. Apply to your face for 20-30 minuets.
WARNING: People with sensitive skin may want to apply to the inner elbow first, like a patch test, before applying Cinnamon to the face.
I applied it to my face using my trusty old foundation brush dampened slightly. I found the consistency to be a little more watery than I expected. Also, next time I make this, I’ll mash my bananas a bit more.
As far as smell…well…It smells like Christmas on my face.
As it dries, I feel my face getting a firm texture like a clay mask as it dries.
The flies in the garden love me!!
Tip 1: Keep you hair away from your face.
Tip 2: Wear your ugly shirt when doing this mask. I dripped a few times on my nightgown.
