"The Banana Peel"
Mia's has named her natural skin care
banana face mask recipe, "The Banana Peel" because it makes her laugh every time
she makes a
sharing your banana face
mask peel recipe Mia!
Mia is impressed with this recipe because she can actually feel the
"The Banana Peel" tighten her skin as it is drying.
It is a rich,
moisturizing facial peel that leaves her skin soft and silky smooth.
For the best results, Mia likes to use her facial steamer to steam her
face just before applying this natural skin care peel so that her pores
are open, and her skin is warm and moist.
That way, all the nutrients can be easily absorbed through the
layers of skin. As an alternative, you can just apply a warm face cloth to the skin.
Mia explains that the banana is rich in potent anti-aging properties such as Vitamins A, B, C, E, potassium, zinc, iron, lutein, esterified fatty acids, and manganese that work to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, reduce minor scarring like acne marks and protects the skin from sun damage. Banana is also known as a significant hydrator for skin, both from the outside in and from the inside out providing more supple and softer skin.
Face Mask Peel
- Finely mash 1/4 of a small banana into a paste which will yield about 1/8 of a cup
- Briskly whip one egg white with a whisk until very frothy
- Slowly add one tablespoon of cornstarch while continuing to whip briskly
- Beat in the mashed banana until completely incorporated
Apply a thin layer to the face and let set for up to 30 minutes. Rinse completely with warm water.
*Tip: Any unused mixture can be kept refrigerated for up to three days.
As an alternative to a banana face mask, a quick and easy treatment can be as simple as using the peel of the banana.
The peel is considered an exceptionally powerful treatment simply by rubbing the inner part of the banana skin directly on the skin for 10 to 15 minutes.
