A facial mask using Banana, Yogurt and Honey!

What do you do with overly ripe banana, old yogurt and old honey?
Make it to facial mask!

I had another episode of breakouts again, and as usual, I would google around for some funky ways of facial treatment. So I found this recipe while browsing through the homemade facial remedies and coincidentally I have all these three ingredients in my kitchen and most of them are not so-safe to eat anymore and a few days passed its expiry date.

Let's start!
Just add half a medium size ripe banana (mash it until creamy), 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and 1 tablespoon of natural honey. That's it!

Voila! A gooey bana-ney-yo facial mask!
Lie back and leave it for 15-20 minutes. I can feel a bit of an itch half way, haha! After that, wash it down with cool water and pat your face dry.

Honey is an excellent antiseptic agent and is great to tighten pores. Whereas Bananas are full of vitamins and together with Yogurt (lactic acid), these would make excellent combo for a smooth and soft skin! Can be used once or twice a week. Try it!


  1. Interesting.. But i think it would make a mess XD

  2. LOL! Can't say it's not. I have an old towel standby for this after experimenting it with my friend. If not, the mask will drip down to ears and neck, haha!
