DIY Homemade banana and honey face mask for dry skin

Homemade banana and honey face mask

1 banana
2 tbsp honey
natural yoghurt

Here is my DIY Homemade  banana and honey face mask, perfect for reviving dry skin.  My skin has been really dry this winter so I’ve had a big interest in face masks that add moisture back. I’ve been doing some research into winter facemasks so in my face mask I have added banana to help soothe dry or irritated skin. The honey helps to  replenish your skin and retain and provide moisture. This mask is perfect for winter and anyone with dry, sensitive skin who wants a natural revitaliser.

To create this mask

#1 Begin by slicing your banana into a bowl
#2 Pour in the 2 tbsp honey
#3 Add a dollop of natural yoghurt
#4 Blend or mash with a fork , add more yogurt if necessary for a better consistency.
#5 Pour into a sealable container. Keep refrigerated until use.

What is your favorite type of face mask?

      Ahh I totally wanna try this, I’m not usually into home made stuff but this sounds good! How long will it last in the fridge? And how many masks do you get from the mixture? Thanks xxxx

        I have 2 sisters so I didn’t really need to worry about it going off. I would assume a couple of days depending on how fresh your ingredients are. I got 3 masks out of the mix but it depends how much you use and how much yogurt you use to get the right consistency :)

    Great post. I like an exfoliating mask that’ll inject some radiance into my skin like the Ren one.



    • 2014/01/25 / 22:22

      Thanks for letting me know, I’ll look into a DIY project that incorporates that :) x

    I think I’m going to give this a go later on today! I’ve never thought to use banana in a facial. I’ve just been sunburn too so it will be nice and soothing, thank you! Great post :) xoxo

      Show off with your great weather :p it’s a very soothing face mask so it should help your sunburn xx

        Haha, oh if it helps we’ve had crazy weather lately, it’s been getting a little chilly – probably not comparable to the cold you’re experiencing – and it hasn’t stopped raining (however, I must admit I do like that kind of weather anyway). And I can now tell you the mask was a success and I’ve made up three batches so far! xx

        • 2014/02/08 / 01:29

          Brilliant, so glad you’ve liked it. Been reading about success stories with honey to clear up skin and blemishes, home remedies seem fab. We just seem to have rain constantly, so hard to do outfit posts in this weather! x

    thanks for sharing, need to try it out, I used to just mix avocado and honey together and apply in bath, or as a scrub version honey and blended coffee beans

    I’m absolutely a fan of face masks and I have yet to try a DIY self made one. I’m looking forwards to it and I will comment again and let you know how it worked out once I’m done!
