My dry skin can become sensitive at times. Therefore, I like to whip up this soothing mask because it is packed with vitamins and
minerals that help in keeping the skin soft and moist as it calms.
Bananas, for one, have both potassium for
plumping up skin cells and vitamin A to help encourage new cell growth.
Cucumbers in this recipe also have an anti-inflammatory property to calm
irritation in addition to a hydrating effect.
Honey is a natural humectant
that attracts and maintains water for lasting moisture.
You also will need
lemon. Due to its citric acid, the lemon will help exfoliate and pave the
way for a better complexion.
To all those wonderful ingredients, you add
just a bit of olive oil, preferably extra-virgin, to enrich the skin with plenty
of vitamin E and A.
I have been having nice results with this
recipe. All the ingredients are probably in your kitchen right now so I do
hope you decide to give this recipe a chance. Once you do, I think you
will be quite pleased with how much healthier your complexion might become.
