DIY Beauty: The Land of Milk and Honey


Today’s post comes to you from my kitchen! It’s been a while (i.e. years) since I made any kind of home-made beauty remedy, but this face mask sounded so easy and promised such good things that it felt rude not to give it a go!

With only three ingredients, this mask is a cinch to make.  First you mash up the banana.

Then add a well-rounded teaspoon of milk powder – I used full fat because that’s what I had kicking around the house, but you could use semi-skimmed if that’s what you have.


Then add a teaspoon of honey.


Mix it all together well and that’s it! Apply it to your face – I used a Mac Foundation brush, but you could use your fingers just as well – and wait 15 minutes before washing off. 


You’ll be left with radiant, glowing skin, with none of the harsh additives you sometimes find in commercially bought masks.

Cue the requisite no-make-up photo:

So very easy and so very effective! This makes enough for two faces, so maybe do it with a friend?

I’ll definitely be doing this again, but if you know any other homemade mask recipes I should try, let me know in the commnets below!

      Thanks so much Ayan, have you been making the scrubs yourself? If so, I’d love to hear how?
      Hope you like this mask if you get around to making it 🙂

    I don’t know if I could do this because the ingredients are so close to making a banana cream pie!

      Haha! I totally know what you mean, Olivia – I forgot to mention how yummy this is, just in case you might inadvertently eat a bit as you go along!
