Face Mask


-2 medium, nicely ripe bananas
-2 tablespoons of honey
-1 fairly ripe peach (pealed and pitted - can be canned if not in season)
-2 generous tablespoons of ground almonds
-Fine-ground oatmeal

Directions: Blend the bananas, honey and peach together to make rich mucilage. Bananas are excellent skin softeners and have potent moisturizing properties. Peaches are a good fruit choice for young skins as they cleanse and help remove excess sebum without stripping the skin. Honey is excellent for all skins, especially if you are prone to breakout, as it helps keep spots at bay and reduces redness. Add the ground almonds and mix together. The almonds are to help polish the skin and remove dead surface cells. Finally, add enough oatmeal to make a paste that can be spread onto the face and neck.

Usage: Apply gently to face and neck area, being careful not to drag the skin. Leave for 10-15 minutes and remove gently with warm water.
