Banana beauty balm

My face was very dry, sensitive the other day and I was running out of hydrating mask. How ah? I remembered looking at some home remedies for beauty from the net. I left it in my car. I went looking for it and found this piece of economical way of hydrating my face. So I just picked up some ingredients from the kitchen.


½ fresh banana
1 tablespoon fresh heavy whipping cream, lightly warmed
1 teaspoon honey, lightly warmed
1 drop German chamomile essential oil
1 tablespoon finely powdered oats (add more if product seems runny, less if it seems too thick)

I substituted whipping cream with a tablespoon of my son’s milk powder *hehe*, I drop the essential oil, didn’t pound the oat. Add all the ingredients with a little bit of hot water, stir well and massage over skin/ face using gentle, sweeping motions. While waiting for it to dry before rinsing, I gobble up the remaining of the mixture for my supper while watching my favorite Chinese sitcom. *yummy*

It was quite cool, cheap ingredients, no need to buy expensive mask. Enjoy!

Does the mask work? Is it nice?

Sounds cool. But if I need to do that mask, I would need to buy almost all the ingredients except honey :P
