If you see the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your 20s or 30s, it is all thanks to the harsh UV rays and pollution. Your skin is exposed to environmental aggressors all the time. These aggressors accumulate on the surface of your skin and when mixed with natural oils and makeup products, clog your pores.
If you’re looking for natural ways to reduce premature signs of ageing, then here’s a DIY botox mask that can come to your rescue. Made of simple everyday ingredients, this face mask can be your best bet.
What you need:
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons yoghurt
1 teaspoon honey
Step 01: Mash one banana. Blend it well so it is free of lumps
Step 02: Add two tablespoons yoghurt and one teaspoon honey to the mashed banana
Step 03: Use a brush to apply the mask onto your face and neck evenly. Go over with it in small circular motions. Alternatively, you can use your fingers for a more seamless application
Step 04: Let the mask sit on your face for about 20 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water
Step 05: Finally, rinse your face again with cold water as it’ll help shrink the pores.
- Banana: Did you know that bananas are known as nature’s botox? Packed with anti-ageing benefits, bananas contain wrinkle-fighting nutrients that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and at the same time, fade age spots.
- Yoghurt: Loaded with antioxidants and lactic acid, yoghurt can be good news for ageing skin. This miracle ingredient prevents free radical damage and premature ageing. Thanks to its mild bleaching properties, yoghurt helps smooth out discolouration and uneven tone.
- Honey: Being a humectant, honey helps achieve younger-looking, plumper and more beautiful skin. Loaded with antioxidants, honey helps fight off free radicals and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
