  • 1 medium-sized banana
  • 1 tbsp pure honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • clean bowl, fork, and mask applicator/tongue depressor


  1. Peel the medium-sized banana and remove the fibrous parts adhering to the inside of the fruit. Place it in a clean bowl and with the use of a fork, start mashing it until the consistency is that of a sticky paste.
  2. After the banana has been mashed, pour 1 tbsp. of honey into the bowl and further mix and mash the mixture. Add the lemon drops to the mixture and mix it well.
  3. Place it in the refrigerator to make it cool so that upon application, the coldness will make the pores closed and more firm.
  4. Wash your face with clean lukewarm water and a hypoallergenic facial wash and pat it dry with a soft towel.
  5. Gently apply the mixture all over your face equally, putting more on the areas with heavy acne or pimples, and open pores. Leave it for 20 minutes until it dries up. Relax for a while and think of the ingredients seeping deep into the skin.

Rinse your face, make sure not to use any soap after. Let the vitamins pamper your skin by washing it off with any facial wash, soap and putting any creams after. Pat it dry after washing.
