I have always had oily skin and when I was younger I had pretty bad acne. I’ve found many products over the years that I have loved. And I have also found many products that have made my skin worse. I recently found a face mask for oily skin. And the best part about it, is that it’s made from things you can find in your kitchen! I am big on homemade beauty products, although I will admit I don’t use them as much as I should. This face mask was so easy to make and it actually felt like it was working.
This mask comes from Homemade Beauty by Annie Strole.
Oil-Reducing Banana Mask
– 1 Banana
– 2 Tablespoons yogurt
– Juice of 1/2 lemon
Mash banana until free of lumps. Transfer to a bowl and stir in yogurt and lemon juice. Apply evenly over face, focusing on your T-zone (your forehead, nose and chin), where oil is most prevalent. Let sit for 20 minutes, and rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Banana works to reduce oil, acne and pore size for maintaining moisture and giving skin a beautiful glow. Use this mask twice a week, and you’ll notice a dramatic different and your skin. I’ve been really enjoying this natural face mask.
