I suppose the idea of beauty recipes start coming to mind when the weather begins to get warmer. Winter-dried hair and skin need attention, and you can take care of all that without breaking the bank. Here are two great recipes you can try out.
Moisturizing Banana Hair Mask
Dry hair can be repaired and moisturized with this awesome mask.
1 Ripe Banana (the riper the better)
1 Tbs Honey
1 Tbs Olive Oil
Whip ingredients together until smooth and creamy (make sure it is really creamy and not clumpy). Apply mixture to damp hair and thoroughly massage in. Cover your hair with plastic wrap (I usually put a towel over this as well) and let sit for 30 to 60 minutes. This is a great time to catch up on your reading. Rinse thoroughly.
Now this might sound weird but bananas are also amazing on the skin. Yogurt contains lactic acid which will smooth and soften the skin, honey is a natural antiseptic and...yay!!!! tightens pores! Add in the nutrient rich banana and you are good to go! Check out the recipe.
1/2 of a Ripe Banana
2 Tbs Plain Yogurt
1 Tbs Honey
First be sure to mix the yogurt thoroughly before measuring out for the mask. Blend all ingredients together and apply to the face avoiding the eye area. Leave mixture on face for 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
