Pour the honey and the juice in a mixing bowl and make sure you mix it well before you apply it to your face, be aware that it absolutely needs to be previously cleansed. Simple as that. Leave it on for about 30 minutes or more to allow full hydration, sit back and enjoy! After the amount of time has passed rinse with warm water and apply moisturiser to seal in moisture!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

What you want to do is take the skin off the avocado and mash into paste with smooth consistency, then add the olive oil and vinegar and mix thoroughly. Beat egg white in a separate bowl and add it into the avocado mixture to get it ready for application. Apply the mask evenly to your clean face and neck.

This is for all of you who have really dried out your skin. Bananas are well known for their moisturising characteristics and can be considered as one of the best solutions for those with dry and dull skin tones. They’re not only super soft but make your skin smooth too. Peaches help to remove excessive oil form the skin, preventing it to lead to acne in dry skin. That’s why these too are an ideal combination.

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 2 peeled peaches

You start preparing by taking a bowl and mashing the bananas, after you’ve done that add the honey and peaches. Make sure you get a fine paste. Finally apply it on your face and neck and leave it for 15 minutes. Finish the treatment by rinsing with warm water.
