Banana Yogurt Face Mask DIY


I use face masks twice a week.  Once a week, I use a charcoal mask or a clay mask to help reduce pore size.  


In between those masks, I use something for brightening like this banana face mask recipe.  I’ll also use this mask or this mask, depending on what ingredients I have on hand.


Here are some more DIY face mask recipes to try at home:


 


Is Banana Mask Good for Face?


Yes, there are several banana face mask benefits. While bananas aren’t commonly used for face masks, they are an excellent ingredient.


Bananas naturally have silica that can promote collagen production.  This can help prevent the signs of aging if you use a banana face mask DIY once a week..


Bananas are also high in the following:


  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A (small amounts)
  • Vitamin B6
  • Potassium


What Does Banana Do to Your Face?


Here are some of the banana face mask benefits:


  • Bananas are high in antioxidants to help fight free radicals in the skin, which can make your skin glow.
  • You can use a banana face mask for acne.  While it’s not as good as using acne medication, a homemade banana face mask can reduce inflammation from blemishes. 
  • A banana face mask DIY can reduce hyperpigmentation, including acne scars.
  • A banana yogurt face mask DIY is good for dry skin.  It moisturizes your skin to reduce dryness and flakes.

 


Is Yogurt a Good Face Mask?


Yes, yogurt is a great addition for this honey and banana face mask.  Yogurt has natural fats that are moisturizing for your skin.  It also helps lock in moisture to prevent dryness.


Yogurt has lactic acid, which is a natural acid that’s mild on your skin.  This acid helps loosen the bonds that hold onto dead skin cells.  By breaking the bonds, the skin cells fall off for smoother skin.


Yogurt also has probiotics that can reduce the bad bacteria on your skin.  This can help reduce blemishes and acne.


I make my own cold start yogurt in the Instant Pot.  I freeze it in a silicone ice cube tray and thaw a cube as needed to make a hair mask or homemade banana face mask.

Honey Benefits for Skin


I also added some honey for a honey and banana face mask.  Raw honey is a humectant.  This means that it helps pull moisture from the air to your skin and helps hold the moisture to your skin.  


Honey is also high in antioxidants and is naturally antimicrobial.  Honey is also calming for sensitive skin.

What Can I Add to Banana to Make a Face Mask?


I like this honey and banana face mask because I really like using yogurt on my hair and skin.  However, you can try adding one of the following in place of the yogurt and honey.



Vegan Alternatives for Banana Face Mask Recipe


If you are vegan and don’t want to use yogurt or honey, then you can easily adapt this recipe and still get banana face mask benefits.


You can swap the Greek yogurt for coconut milk yogurt.  Of the non-dairy yogurt alternatives, coconut milk will have the most benefits for your skin.


You can omit the raw honey if desired.
