A DIY Face Mask for Oily Skin

Let’s get straight to today’s DIY face mask:

For oily skinIngredients:

  • Ripe banana (1)
  • Lemon juice (1 tbsp)
  • Honey (1 tbsp)
  • Dash of sea salt (optional)

Mash the banana in a bowl, then add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of honey. Mix well.

Apply the mixture to your face and allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with warm water.

Sorry for such a quick post. I promise I’ll make it up to you in future blog posts. Does anyone have any suggestions for future blog posts? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!

DIY: Banana and Avocado Hair Mask

IMG_8375

Are you looking to put an avocado and a banana to good use? I was, and I crossed my fingers as I mixed the two together that this would work. I could have sworn that months ago I had saved the information, either on my computer or in my journal, for a similar hair mask. Unable to find it, I assumed it would be fine as I have definitely seen both of these ingredients used in other hair masks before.

This is as simple as combining a banana and an avocado together in a bowl and mashing. I cut both into smaller pieces before I began mashing. It wasn’t difficult, but next time I think I’ll use my Magic Bullet.

Before I began, I took a shower and washed my hair. I used a towel to squeeze excess water out but it was still quite damp. Immediately before applying the hair mask, I used a comb to get any tangles out, and I draped a towel over my shoulders/around my neck, then using my fingers, I combed the mixture through my hair.

The last time I used a conditioning hair mask I left it on for 20 minutes, so I did the same with this. After 20 very relaxing minutes, after all, there’s not much you can do with banana and avocado in your hair, I rinsed my hair in the shower and dried as usual.

Success! My hair is super soft, and it smells amazing!
