What you’ll need: 1/2 ripe banana, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon grounded oats.
Mix the grounded oats with mashed banana and add a tablespoon of honey to form a thick paste. Make sure the consistency is not too thick. Apply it onto your face and neck and let it work the magic for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water, pat dry and tone your face; and you’re all set to shine!

3. Tightening face mask
Has your skin been feeling all saggy and wrinkly? Whisk and fix the shiz up to look sweet 16 forever!
What you’ll need: 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Whisk the egg white a little, add honey and lemon juice to prepare the mask. Apply the mixture carefully with a brush as it is quite fluidic. You can also dip a face sheet in the mixture and use it on your face for even better results.
USP: Egg white is known to shrink the enlarged pores and make them less noticeable. While honey acts as a moisturising agent in the pack, lemon juice cleanses the pores before the egg white shrinks them thus, leaving the skin tightened, hydrated and clearer.
4. Glow enhancing face mask
Citrusy fruits are not just healthy for our body on the inside but also on the outside. Let the Vitamin C from oranges take your facial glow up by a notch.
What you’ll need: Sundried orange peels, sandalwood powder, and rose or distilled water.
Ground the sundried orange peels to a fine texture. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sandalwood powder to 1 teaspoon of orange peel powder and form a paste by adding enough rose/ distilled water. Apply the mask on your face and neck, let it dry and wash off.
USP: The Vitamin C and antioxidants in orange peel and sandalwood powder fight the damage done by free radicals and unveil the clear, brighten skin. The combination also removes tan and fights acne, thus, leaving the skin glowing and more radiant.
