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.

Rice Flour Muffins

Love Rice? Me too!

I NOTICED readers like my blog recipes for face and food and that you search for recipes for rice flour a lot.

As you may know I love to eat rice and wear it too on. Check out my face mask recipe in a previous blog if you have not tried it yet. Your skin will glow.

So, here’s a recipe and a mix I found that I simply had to share with you. There is an amazing health food store in Gainesville, Florida I love to drive to even though it is over an hour from my house….it’s called Wards and it is the food bomb~ LOVE this place. Love shopping from local  farmers and small business owners too~
