Self-care toolkit #3: Breakfast-on-your-face scrub
I absolutely LOVE this recipe from Deliciously Ella! Wish I had known about it when my sons were learning to eat solid foods!
Three simple ingredients:
- Banana (1/2 a ripe one)
- Oatmeal (about 2 tablespoons)
- Honey (about 1 teaspoon)
That's it! Here are the photos from Ella's site:
Mash the banana with a fork then mix in the oats and honey. Then massage into your skin for a few minutes. Ella suggests doing it over the sink to avoid making a mess. She leaves it on for an hour before washing off with warm water. I rarely find an hour where I can lay still so I do 10-15 minutes. My skin feels really smooth afterwards!
(In full disclosure, this recipe supposedly makes 2 masks but I end up snacking on the rest of it before putting it on. You can pamper your skin and taste buds!)
