Beautiful skin is something we all desire, but often don’t think we have the money to afford. From pricey skin care creams to even pricier spa services, maintaining your skin can set you back a pretty penny. Well, no worries chicas. I have some easy, do-it-yourself alternatives to the expensive department store skin care options. These alternatives involve items you can purchase readily at your local grocery store or health food store. Here is a simple skin care recipe that will transform your skin from basic to beautiful in a matter of days!
Banana, Honey, Lemon Juice Cucumber Mask
This mask is great for those suffering from dry skin. Winter weather tends to dry out our skin, along with exposure to indoor heat and fireplaces. This refreshing mask infuses skin with much-needed moisture and hydration, all while tightening and toning skin for a youthful natural appearance.
1 Tbsp. Honey
4 Tbsp. Lemon juice
First thing you will need to do is get the honey pliable so that you can work with it. Warm the honey up in a small glass bowl that is sitting in warm water. After the honey has loosened up, you will need to put your banana and cucumber into a food processor or blender and blend until they form a puree. Add your lemon juice and honey to the puree until you have a nice thick paste. Apply the paste to freshly cleansed skin. Let sit for 30 minutes so the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from the fresh ingredients can work their magic on your skin. When you’re ready to remove the mask, just take a washcloth and soak it in lukewarm water. Gently wipe the mask off your face and you’re ready for your close-up.
