Banana & Turmeric Face Mask for blocked poresSaturday, 16 December 2017 | Fiona
Turmeric is known for its amazing medicinal properties - which is why it's gained popularity in smoothies, lattes and face masks. It's said that the active ingredient in turmeric (curcumin) has strong anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.
Here's our recipe for a banana and turmeric mask with manuka honey and lemon. This mask will help fight against congested skin and bacteria on the skin, as well as helping calm angry looking breakouts.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 Tbs of Manuka honey
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (or finely grated fresh turmeric)
- 1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Mash the banana with a fork then add the other ingredients. For a super smooth consistency you can blend the ingredients, otherwise apply generously straight to your face. Feel free to massage the mixture into your skin so they the ingredients get into your pores as much as possible. Leave it on for at least 5 minutes, then rinse off.
