You don’t need to go to the shop and spend loads on fancy face-masks, in fact some of the ingredients for the best face-masks are sat right in your kitchen! Face masks made with food isn’t a new thing, but if you haven’t already given it a go, now is the time to try and give your skin a big dose of goodness!
We go bananas for bananas here at SkinBase, they really are an amazing fruit. Just eating one banana can really help with period cramps and it’s also one of the top foods for face masks because of its high content of vitamins A and E. Apply banana directly to your face and it will leave skin feeling soft, smooth and nourished. If you have a ripe banana on hand, mash it up and apply it to your face for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and enjoy your baby soft skin.
Strawberry is another fruit that offers a host of skin care benefits and beyond. You can use strawberries to help whiten your teeth, cleanse your skin, treat acne, fight dandruff and even treat pigmentation. Making a face mask with strawberries is easy. All you need to do is mash up some strawberries and apply it to your face. Your skin will be brighter, tighter and super soft.
Honey is one of those foods that are so useful in a variety of ways. Can be used to help the symptoms of acne, moisturise dry skin, cleanse and heal burns and cuts. You can use honey alone for an antibacterial and moisturising face mask or use it as a spot treatment for acne. If you like to take baths, you can also add 2 cups of honey to your bath water for a soothing soak.
