a Scottish girl living the American dream. Fashion, beautiful and everything fabulous to me!


During all seasons, throughout the year, especially dependant on where you live with lots of pollution it can all take a toll on your skin, leaving it dry and lifeless. Over the years I have tried to make my own face masks which I feel has made more a positive impact on my skin compared to facials at Spa’s or out a packet.

This is a Banana, Honey and a touch of Cinnamon homemade face mask.

Ingredients: 

a banana
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Begin by mashing the half banana in a bowl with a  spoon. Once you’ve created a smooth, consistent texture, mix in the honey and cinnamon.
To apply, start with a freshly cleaned face. Gently apply the mask with your fingers, and leave it on for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, gently rinse and wash your face with a hot towel.
The banana is to help sooth dry, irritated skin. The honey is beneficial in so many ways, but the main reason I chose honey as the main ingredient is because it helps replenish your skin from the harshness of every day life, including time spent in the sun. The cinnamon is a nice touch to fight blemishes and open your pores.
Do you have any homemade facemask recipes you can share? Would love to hear from you.
