Banana Mask for Face for Every Skin Type!! We all know how wonderful bananas are for our overall health. This pre-packaged fruit contains a number of vitamins and essential nutrients. Most importantly it contains potassium and collagen which maintain the elasticity of the skin to keep it looking young. Here are 3 amazing banana masks you can apply to get the glowing skin (you might want to eat them too!).
FOR DRY SKIN:
Banana and honey mask:
2 tablespoons of honey (preferably organic)
Pinch of turmeric
Preparation: mash a banana in a bowl with the help of a fork. Make sure you get a paste-like consistency. Add the honey and turmeric. Mix really well and apply on the face using a paddle brush. You can add all the ingredients in the mixer as well to get the best consistency and a smooth face mask. Wash after 15 minutes with warm water.
Benefits: Bananas contain plenty of moisture. Honey is extremely hydrating for dry skin and helps to soothe the skin. Turmeric has anti-bacterial properties and that can never be bad for the skin, right?
FOR OILY SKIN:
Banana and lemon mask:
- One ripe banana
- Juice of one lemon
- Two tablespoons of gram flour
Preparation: mash the banana into a paste and then add the lemon juice as well as two tablespoons of gram flour. Apply the prepared paste and leave it on till it has dried out completely. Wet your fingers and dab some water on the surface of your face and start scrubbing gently. Do the same for 5 minutes and then rinse using cold water.
Benefits: lemons work really well for oily skin. They absorb excess sebum and also lighten pigmentation. Lemon juice helps to control oil production while the banana will make sure that the skin does not dry out a lot. Gram flour is a natural exfoliator and will help to scrub off dead cells which clog the pores and can make things worse for oily skin.
FOR TIRED AND SAGGING SKIN:
Banana and tomato juice mask:
- One ripe banana
- 5-6 tablespoons tomato juice
- One tablespoon yogurt
Preparation: mash the banana and add the tomato juice to get a paste. Add yogurt and mix well. Apply on the skin and leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse off with cold water.
Benefits: banana contains vitamin c which will help lift the skin. Tomato juice is used for tightening the skin and making it firm. Yogurt will reduce puffiness and shine to the skin.
