DIY Beauty Treatment: Tropical Island Face Mask

My best curlfriend Nu went to Hawaii on vacation and while I was stuck here in Kentucky I decided to treat myself to a little tropical flare by whipping up this face mask.

Tropical Island Face Mask

  • ½ a banana
  • splash coconut water
  • 1 tsp of honey or agave nectar
  • few drops teaspoon of jojoba oil
  • optional: 1 Tbsp brown sugar (to exfoliate the skin)
Slice banana into small pieces and place in a bowl.  Add water, honey/agave and oil and mix with a spoon or fork.  You may add brown sugar to create an exfoliant.  Cleanse your face to remove any dirt and oil.  Massage mask into face and neck and allow to sit for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
You can combine the remaining banana, coconut water and honey with ice in a blender to create a refreshing drink.  Or add a touch of rum for extra fun.

Bananas soften the skin and add nourishment due to levels of  potassium and magnesium. Coconut water tones and balances skin’s natural pH level.  Honey and agave are humectants which enrich the skin with moisture.  Jojoba oil is closest to the skin’s natural sebum and can help balance oil production.
