I enjoy DIY homemade facial masques and will try to share one with you each week.
MOTW- Masque of the Week
Banana bread is yummo and a banana bread masque sounds like fun! I found a few recipe variations but picked this one to share with you:
BANANA BREAD MASQUE
1/2 very ripe banana, mashed
2 TBSP ground oats
milk or cream, add as necessary
pinch of nutmeg
2 TBSP whole wheat flour
To make ground oats- place rolled oats in a blender and grind until fine powder.
Whip ingredients together, adding cream or oats to create a creamy paste consistency. Apply to clean face and rinse after 5 to 10 minutes, pat skin dry.
This mixture is perishable, use right away.
The bananas are moisturizing, oats are soothing, milk or cream is softening, nutmeg is an antiseptic and flour is an antioxidant.
