If you didn’t know already, bananas can do wonders for your skin by making it appear radiant and youthful. The fruit, in fact, is packed with ingredients for great skin: vitamin A to fade dark spots and blemishes and to smooth out rough skin; vitamin B to reduce dryness; vitamin E to reduce the appearance of wrinkles; and potassium to moisturize and hydrate. So the fruit makes a perfect all-natural, homemade face mask that leaves the skin looking and feeling softer.

Here’s a quick and short recipe for making and doing a banana facial.

How To Make:

Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste.

How to apply:

Gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water.

Or, if you’d like to get more out of a banana facial mask, try adding plain yogurt and honey:

Mix 1/4 cup of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey (a natural acne remedy), and one medium banana.

A DIY facial mask of this type can be a perfect addition to your weekend relaxation.
