DIY Beauty Fridays: The Miracle of Bananas

Bananas are a very interesting fruit.  First, they grow in huge bunches on trees.  (Well, at least we call them trees.)  Second, they are one of the only fruits that can be eaten (and enjoyed) when they're not fully ripe.  Third, they come in different sizes, shapes and colors.  However, as interesting (or strange) the banana is, one can not deny how good they are for your body....and your skin.

Anti-Wrinkle Banana Facial Spread

1 medium banana
Almond oil (optional)
Honey (optional)

Mash the banana in a bowl and add EITHER some honey or almond oil.  (Enough to make a thick paste).  Spread evenly over freshly cleansed face.  Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse off with cool water.  **I added in the optional items because they make the banana a bit easier to spread on face plus almond oil and honey are really great for your skin.  However, you don't need to add them if you don't want.

Why this works?  Bananas contain tons of vitamins, valuable fats and acids that make your skin extremely stretchy and smooth.  Bananas make your skin supple and radiant.  I highly recommend this spread because, once done, you're skin will have a glow that wouldn't normally occur with other skin care products.

I'll be honest, bananas aren't normally my favorite food but I am slowly learning to love them.  They are a huge addition in the new diet I'm trying plus knowing that I can make some easy and fabulous skin care products with them makes these yellow bad boys my new super-fruit!!

Happy Friday and weekend ladies!
