How To... Clear Up Your Complexion

Give your skin a a jolt of energy with B vitamins and smooth honey. This face mask will be sure to calm and clean your skin just in time for those bright spring days.

Banana lemon honey face mask

Spring clean your face with our rejuvenating banana honey face mask. The vitamins in bananas are known to improve complexion and even smooth wrinkles when applied directly to the skin. Eating bananas is also a great way to beautify as the vitamins C and B6, manganese and water improve your complexion from the inside out.

While the banana helps nourish the skin, the honey absorbs and retains moisture, hydrating the skin and enhancing your natural glow. Lastly, a touch of lemon juice exfoliates the skin, reducing the appearance of scars and acne… yes please!

Wow, I just did this, minus the lemon and it seriously was amazing!! I have little wrinkles in between my eyebrows from furrowing them all the time - they are gone. no joke! Great mask!

You do not have to use lemon juice, but doing so will help improve the affects of the mask by reducing oil and shine for those with overly oily skin. It is also great for fighting acne.

I know this probably won't keep very long but if you make enough for two applications on a consecutive days, for example, so basically overnight, will that keep okay?

Its best to use lemon juice from a lemon instead of the bottled kind! Lemon juice is great for many things including fading scars, helps with acne, softens the skin, and the list goes on! The lemon juice is very important!
