My skin has been crazy this last month. I didn’t change anything, but my skin decided to change on me. Lots of red bumps out of nowhere. FUN. Has this ever happened to you? To combat the problem, I stopped using my oily hair products and added a stronger spot treatment. I saw no results, and finally decided it was time to call the dermatologist. When the office told me it was going to be three weeks before I could get an appointment, I was beyond frustrated. Then, I stumbled upon Lauren Conrad’s DIY Miracle Mask. Since I am not one who believes in experimenting with at-home remedies, I was skeptical. But, I figured I couldn’t make my skin much worse before my doctor’s appointment.
Why It’s a Miracle Worker
The mask is a DIY mixture of bananas and honey. So simple, yet so amazing. Bananas contain vitamins A, C, E, B6, and B12. They are also filled with potassium and magnesium. When you apply them to your skin, they help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and control oil. SOLD! Honey is an antimicrobial – just what I needed to fight the acne that was appearing on my skin. It helps heal your blemishes and diminish the appearance of scarring. In addition, honey helps your skin absorb and retain moisture. Sounds like the perfect concoction for balanced skin.
1/2 large banana sliced
1 tsp honey
Pour honey over the sliced bananas. Then, mash the bananas with a fork. Apply the mixture to your face for 15-20 minutes. Wipe it off with warm water. (I like to half the recipe for my face)
In just one day, I noticed that my skin looked better. I liked it so much that I’ve tried the mask multiple times since. My skin is more even, my pores are clearer, and almost all my breakout areas are gone! My husband even told me that he’s “glad I finally found something to help my skin.” Well thanks… I think.
Who Can Benefit From the Miracle Mask?
I think anyone can benefit from this miracle mask! I love how gentle it is on the skin. It is also easy to make and really affordable. However, the following individuals are ideal candidates for the miracle mask:
- People with sensitive skin
- Natural product lovers
- Women who are pregnant
- People that cannot handle retinol but want anti-aging benefits
- Teenagers that struggle with acne – proactive and other options are usually too harsh.
