So here is the long awaited second installment of the pantry beauty series – sorry about the delay!
The banana has long been a lunchbox favourite and it can now proudly be dubbed one of our pantry beauty favourites aswell. Banana has wonderful soothing and nourishing properties, perfect for tired hair and skin. Rather than using those overripe bananas to make a loaf of banana bread packed full of sugar, why not try these simple beauty treatments?
SIMPLE FACE MASK:
1 ripe organic banana mashed
Spread the mashed banana all over your face and leave to sit for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water
BANANA AND HONEY FACE MASK:
1/2 ripe organic banana, mashed
2 Tbsps full fat sour cream
1 Tbsp organic honey
Mix the ingredients together and apply to the face. Leave to nourish for 15 minutes before rinsing with cold water. Follow with your normal moisturising routine
BANANA AND AVOCADO HAIR TREATMENT:
1/2 organic avocado
1 organic banana
Mash together the banana and avocado. Apply to damp hair, tie hair in a bun and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse and style as normal.
And there you have it… say goodbye to all those overripe bananas, and goodbye to dehydrated hair and skin!
