We’re bananas about bananas! As well as providing essential vitamins and minerals including a great does of potassium in your diet, bananas are also amazing at boosting beauty from the outside. There’s a good reason that they are called nature’s botox…

Using banana on the skin is claimed to hydrate and moisturise, fade dark spots and blemishes, reduce and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. The honey in this mask is a powerful anti-bacterial ingredient and helps to fight spots, in addition to soothing inflammation, preventing dry skin and promoting the generation of new skin cells.

Instructions: mash up a medium sized banana, mix in 2 tablespoons of honey, and voila! Smooth it over clean skin, leave it to do its magic for 20 minutes and then wash off with warm water. You might even find that you don’t need to use a moisturiser afterwards. Or dessert if like us you’re tempted to eat it!
