If you have a banana which has been left too long and has gone all black, here is a face pack treat idea to use it up and make your skin all soft and lovely:-
Mash up the banana with a fork in a bowl,
Add a spoon full of honey, very moisturising,
Mix in some oats to firm up the texture and give gentle exfoliation.
Put this yummy mixture on your face for ten minutes, relax in the bath or a big comfy chair and let your mind go somewhere beautiful. Wash it off and feel brand new!
It is a great way to avoid waste and make your skin look and feel great using ingredients good enough to eat. Let me know how you get on with this or if you have any other home made cosmetic recipes!
