banana honey mask
I buy bananas with the best intentions. I almost always grab a bunch (four or five bananas) for the week. In my mind, I validate the purchase: A healthy breakfast that's easy to take on the road. And perhaps, if I'm extra lucky, a delicious addition to my peanut butter toast. Come Friday, there's always one banana that didn't quite make it. Because I don't like throwing away perfectly good food (and because I don't like eating bananas that are too ripe), I found this easy banana face mask recipe.
All three ingredients can be combined in a mixing bowl and mashed with a fork. I found that my mask was still a little too chunky — a problem my immersion blender solved in a matter of seconds. After layering the mask over my freshly-washed face, I let it sit for 15 minutes. I washed it off with warm water and applied a light moisturizer. Voila!
