In my attempt to be more natural with my cosmetics, I’ve recently discovered the world of at-home easy to make face masks.  Here’s one I recently, tried:

1/2 a ripe banana
1/2 a very ripe avocado
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil

Puree it all up and apply onto a clean dry face.  Relax for 15 minutes then rinse off with warm water.  Tone and moisturize.

I used my hand blender to puree for about 5 seconds.

My mask turned out a little runny since I had to add some avocado oil as I had run out ripe avocado.

So simple!  I put the mask on and answered emails and forgot about it on my face.  I
realized only a bit later when I wondered why I kept smelling banana.  I
didn’t understand it at all.  And then I remembered!

It left my face feeling really hydrated.  The banana and avocado are deeply nourishing, the honey is hydrating and cleaning and the olive oil richly moisturizing.  And don’t worry it doesn’t clog pores.   Trust me, I think I have the most cloggable *is that a word?* pores on the planet and they were fine.

Kids, do try this at home.
