This new banana face mask did a pretty good job at removing acne. After last weeks fiasco with my face turning yellow, I decided to take a different approach to the turmeric, namely by using it as a smaller ingredient instead of as the main part of the mask. And in comes the banana face mask for acne. After tons of research I came to the conclusion that the most popular variant of the banana face mask is this one. It was a pretty simple mask to make, all I needed was a banana, half a spoon of baking soda and the same amount of turmeric powder.
I would recommend recuding the ingredients to a about a third of what you can see in the video if you only want to use the mask once, as I had a lot of leftovers. However, you could probably use this mask twice a week with no problem, you will have to see how your skin reacts to the baking soda.
As for the process of making the banana mask, it was pretty simple to mix up the ingredients. It did take a little longer than I expected to get rid of most of the bumps of banana, but no worries.
I suggest you wear latex gloves when you work with turmeric powder, or turmeric in general, as it tends to stain the tips of your fingernails. So unless yellow tips is in fashion where you live, I suggest you either grab some gloves, or be really careful, and apply the mask with a make-up brush. My mask was a little bit runny as I applied it, and it took quite some times. This is what I disliked about this mask, and the reason why next time I will be replacing the banana with a good dash of honey, or perhaps some coconut oil.
After you left the mask on for about 15 minutes, go to the sink and wash it off. Be careful not to get the mask in your hair etc, it was tricky to get out. Now, if you have dry skin, I suggest you apply some moisturiser, you might want some if you have oily skin as well, but for me as a person with pretty damn oily skin, I decided not to wear any after this particular mask.
Like I mentioned, this is not my new favourite mask, due to the runny banana, but it did do a great job at cleaning my skin.
