Bionic Homemade: Banana Face Mask

by Bionic Beauty on 09.Aug.2010 · 2 comments

Welcome to another installment of Bionic Beauty Homemade with Joycey Couture!

Now that it’s summertime, I’ve been finding myself frequenting the local fruit stands. And for some reason, I pick up bananas every visit.

I’m blaming it on the Banana Split Flavored Lip Gloss by My Lip Stuff that Bionic Beauty gave me a few months ago (if you missed her review a few years back, check it out now). Or maybe my body craves some delicious potassium in the heat? Hmm…

Whatever the case may be- when everything looks too tempting to pass up at the stand, I find myself with a few too many squishy bananas in my kitchen.

So when thinking up ideas for my fruit addiction it came down to one of three options- 1) adopt a monkey, 2) make banana bread, or 3) come up with a homemade beauty recipe!

I opted for number three!

Check out this yummy banana face mask recipe!

Looking for a masque that both softens and tightens your face? Use your smushy bananas to rejuvenate your skin! This recipe is extremely easy to prepare and is an effective way to treat you skin against Summer dryness. By the way, here’s a huge thanks to Sharambrosia for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Gather up your face mask ingredients…

Whisk the egg white in a small mixing bowl, then blend in the plain yogurt, Jojoba oil, honey and Kaolin clay until it becomes a smooth creamy mixture.  In a separate bowl, mash up the banana until it is smooth. Then blend into the first mixture.
The best way to use this masque is while sitting in the tub because it is a bit messy (*wink!*).

Apply to the entire face, neck and shoulder area.  As it sits, keep applying more while you build the masque up as well as massage it in.  Let sit for at least 10-15 minutes and then remove with a warm washcloth.  Finish with a tonic on a cotton ball (or my natural favorite Witch Hazel) to remove any excess product from the skin, then moisturize as usual.

Stay Bionic,

Why not do all three, Joycey? :-) Hee-hee. *I* love monkeys, banana bread, and making stuff at home. Wish I had the resources to adopt a monkey.

Thanks for the recipe!! I don’t have all of the ingredients (yes on the bananas), but I’d imagine that at least some of them will still work well together. I look forward to trying it.

Interesting idea! I’m sure it would make my skin so smooth! Usually, I make my own Mint Souffle Mask – – It contains spearmint, oil and honey. I love it!
