In the Mirror: Banana & Rose water facial

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if I lived in the same town as my Mom, I would be doing this facial with her… I love you Mom! Last week I made Rose Water and I talked about a few things you do with it. If you have a free 30 or 45 min, the rose water is simple to make and it would be a great thing to do with your mom on her special day, find the recipe here.  This facial has anti-
aging benefits, helps with puffiness and it plumps the skin! Bananas have a generous amount of vitamin C in them, which can help give your skin a youthful glow!

What you'll need:
½ ripe banana
1 tbsp of rose water
That’s it!

What to do:
Mash banana until creamy
Add rose water and mix well
Apply on face and neck
Use peel around your eyes (de-puffing)
Leave ½ hour
Make a smoothie with remaining banana J
Rinse well
Tone with rose water

This mixture is best when used immediately. It will feel slimy and runny but it will dry:) Tip: try to mix all the clumps out of the banana to receive all of its benefits.  Mine was a bit chunky…oops!
