DIY face mask: Banana, Oats and Honey


Hello!
How are you?

I love making my own fresh face masks. Today I'm going to show you guys how you can make your very own using only 3 ingredients. This Banana, Oats and Honey mask is made of 100% natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin, takes only a few minutes and makes your skin feel super soft and moisturized. 

To make the mask you will need:


A handful of oats, honey,1/2 a banana and water.


To make your face mask, start by crushing up your banana.


Then add a few drops of water to the banana paste and mix


Take your oats and add a few good dollops of honey





 Then add in your banana


And mix together



 Add a few tsps of water and mix again


Until it resembles this consistency




And voila, your very own handmade face mask! To use the face mask: lightly damp your face, apply the mask and leave for 5-10 minutes before washing off with luke warm water.



If you have any mask left over, it can be stored in your fridge for a few days.

I hope you've enjoyed this DIY,
let me know if you try it out!

Until next time,

  11. Hi Lizzie how are you? I hope you are well. Sorry I haven't spoken to you much, I been covering someone shift at work the past couple of weeks - urgh it has been doing my head in. Anyway when I was at uni i experimented with homemade face mask, i set up a panel of people testing them and getting their before and after, omg it was a laugh! There's video somewhere out there off me applying all sort of gooey stuff to people face.

  15. I love anything DIY. I made my mum homemade brown sugar and vanilla body scrub! I think I'll be trying out this nifty little idea, as I have loads of porridge oats to use up!

    Great job!
