Let’s get straight to today’s DIY face mask:
- 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!
This is surprisingly one of my favorite lip scrubs, I say ‘surprisingly’ because I do not like honey. I guess I am too focused on the results to care about the ingredients. For those of you who do like honey, this recipe is completely edible. I heard about it from a friend of mine, and every time she uses this, she licks it off her lips.
You will need a small glass or plastic container with a lid. If you enjoy making products like this start saving lip balm and eye shadow pots. You can also buy suitable containers if you don’t already have some. I purchased the container I used on sale from CanWax.
Aside from a container with a lid, all you’re going to need to make this is sugar, honey and lime juice.
In your container, combine equal parts honey and sugar, then add slightly less lime juice. If you wish to thicken the product to get more of a scrub, add more sugar. Stir well. If the product starts to separate between uses, give it another quick stir.
Store your lip scrub at room temperature in your lidded container and use once or twice a day. When using, massage onto your lips with your finger and continue to massage for a minute or two.
