We have the recipe you bring the energy

…and the ingredients and some kitchen utensils please




Why a banana facial, what are the benefits of banana for me…or my skin?

They are one of the most nourishing fruits available because they contain large quantities of magnesium, potassium, zinc, iodine, iron and vitamins A, B (folic acid), E, and F and much more…Guess what, that's all good stuff especially for your skin

Because of these qualities it is often used to battle dry skin and wrinkles. Banana facials moisturize and soothe your skin


If you want to find out more about Bananas as an active ingredient in do-it-yourself facial masks visit our homemade facial mask basics page by clicking on the link. There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe


Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page


When you have applied the banana facial of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water


To make your face mask experience even more satisfying we suggest you check our quick facial tips page. These will smooth things out just a little bit more

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
