BANANA Photo

I love bananas and the more unattractive the better!
Just like people …please don’t judge a book or banana by it’s cover.You never know what you will find.

I love to snack on them!
Whip up fresh muffins with these mushy flavorful delights.
Rub elbows and knees with them.
Make hydrating hair masks with bananas!

Here is a skin moisturizing face mask for YOU try this fall. It is fresh,fast and easy to make!
My southern hunk husband loves it too!

I’m Bananas D.I.Y. Face mask

1 tablespoon of honey
1 over ripe banana
1 ripe avocado

*Add a dash of lemon juice so the avocados don’t turn.But it is not necessary.
Mash all of the above and give your skin some LOVE!

Apply it to your face and neck. Skip the eye area but you can apply mask to the lips.

Honey makes it all stick together and helps hold in moisture. The beautiful banana can both hydrate and gently tighten the skin.
Avocados are rich in goodness and hydrating bliss.

Got any left over??? EAT it.

I love to cook,play in my kitchen and do makeup.

What do you do with fresh bananas?
Share a recipe with me.Post a comment. I would LOVE to hear from you.

Day 5 to more beautiful skin!

Hands looking older,dry and are your cuticles looking unkept? Now is the time to book and appointment for a paraffin dip and skinny dip with your hands. Paraffin treatments at salons or spas are mini hydrating vacations for your skin.

It takes about ten minutes total and will refresh your skin and moisturize it too. Follow up with a decadent hand and body lotion or cream. Take care of your hands they say so much without your saying a word.

Cozy concoction for dry skin

Shea Butter is all the rage and is a very old beauty elixir. After a long day of work and no flip flop weather here in sunny Florida it is in the 30’s !

My skin is so dry and I am in the mood to whip up a salve for my skin and lips. I took a large scoop of shea butter out of a tub that I have and placed it in a bowl. I then took a pestle and mortar and started to stir the shea. I squeezed in some honey from the bear bottle to add a sweet moisturizing delight to the mix. BOTH moisturize and honey is an antibacterial. After you have the amount you want I placed this mix into the microwave and cooked on low 60 seconds. (depending on your microwave may be warm it more)

Stir this creamy butter, sit down and drap the area  where you will apply this with a small towel so you don’t stain sheets or carpeting. Rub in as it warms into your skin and enjoy the kisses of moisture on your skin. I love to use this on my elbows,knees and feet. I also love to put on white loose and cozy soft socks afterwards and go to sleep.

Wake up to softer skin… Guys and Gals~ Got a bit leftover on your finger? Apply some to your lips~

*Of course do not try this recipe if you are allergic to any of these ingredients.
