The answer is simple. They are all jam-packed with Mother Natures curative ingredients. I’ve been using this recipe for years and it’s been described by experts as the ‘painless free botox mask’. No needles needed to look amazing!

So What are some of the ingredients? 

Bananas are loaded with essential minerals including potassium and, contain a compound called alpha-linolenic acid, which demonstrates significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  It enhances blood circulation, which also makes them a perfect ingredient to add to a face mask.

Lemon contains Vitamin C, known for its anti-aging and skin rejuvenating properties. Using masks or face creams rich in vitamin C helps to boost collagen production.deborah leonard makeup artist blog

Honey is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to the skin. It is well known for its curative and antimicrobial properties that help your skin to repair and protect itself.

Combine all three of these ingredients and you have a powerful, skin repairing antiaging and rejuvenating face-mask.

The Recipe

  • A small ripe banana
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • 1  tsp Lemon Juice

How to!

Mash your banana in a small bowl. Add a tablespoon of natural honey and a teaspoon of lemon. Simply stir the ingredients together with your fork. Then the fun begins. You can put this on using your fingers or with a flat foundation brush (I use a foundation brush). Apply down T-zone, across forehead, cheeks, and chin.

Tip – Run a nice hot salt bath. Apply your mask before you sink into it. Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes while you soak.  Keep your feet elevated whilst wearing it as this will increase blood flow to the face.  Increased blood flow delivers more oxygenated blood, promotes cell growth and eliminates toxins from the skin.

Additional Benefits to this painless botox treatment – Your skin will feel hydrated and soothed because of the antimicrobial and nourishing properties in the banana and honey.  Thanks to the lemon, this simple mask will have a deep cleansing effect, which aids desquamation (fancy word for shedding dead skin cells), pores will be refined, fine lines plumped out, and your skin will look bright and radiant.

This is great for women of all ages, especially the fab over forties. You can apply it up to three times per week at night and follow it with you night oils and moisturizers. Go banana’s and peel back the years.
