Hey guys, so a few weeks ago I showed you some at home spa treatments and decided that I would share some at home face masks to pamper your skin. This way you can get the refreshed, relaxed salon-fresh feeling without leaving the warmth of your own home, especially as the days are getting colder and colder. These face masks are so easy to prepare and will allow you to have a littletime for yourself. So let’s get started shall we??

Papaya Face Mask

This mask is suitable for all skin types, helping to create an even skin tone and leaving your skin soft, glowing and super hydrated! Papaya and pineapple contain papain and bromelain, two enzymes that promote skin renewal and dissolve dry skin cells. Papaya benefits the skin as it is rich in vitamin A, E and C and anti-oxidants which moisturise the skin and clear any dirt and dark spots on your face.

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons raw papaya
  • ½ teaspoon fresh pineapple juice

Mix the pineapple juice with the mashed papaya in a small bowl, until you form a smooth paste. apply this paste onto your clean face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Rinse off and voila! For best results use this mask once a week.

Banana Face Mask

Bananas contain lots of vitamins that are beneficial to your skin and their natural acids help remove dead skin cells to brighten your complexion. For a natural face mask that’s delicious enough to eat, you can use:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons honey

All you have to do is mash up a banana with a fork and then mix in two tablespoons of honey. If you want you could also add a few drops of lemon. Apply your homemade mask to the face for 15 minutes before rinsing with a cool or steaming warm washcloth and follow with a good moisturiser to lock in the goodness!
