When I want to take care of my skin, in most cases, I open the fridge and I think “Mmmm…what can I use to prepare a healthy face mask???”. Fruits are amazing to prepare fresh and healthy hair and skin masks! In this post, I will show you how easy is to prepare a wonderful fresh face and hair mask with banana and cucumbers.

Fresh Face and Hair Mask with just 2 ingredients
Even though my fridge is the most of the cases dramatically empty, this time I found 3 ingredients:
- a banana
- a cucumber
- a beetroot
I preferred to avoid the beetroot after seeing my hands. I was cutting it with the aim of smashing it and take just a bit of juice but my hands and the glass was so dark pink that I immediately though at my face after the treatment!! My God not! So I only drank my fresh beetroot juice and prepared the other 2 ingredients for my facial mask!
Procedure: banana and cucumber face mask
I cut the banana and the cucumber and I mixed them with my hand blender. So easy so efficient! The benefits of bananas are reported in another post (face mask rice banana & honey ) but what about cucumber!?!? Cucumbers are made mainly of water but they contain also important nutrients such as potassium, manganese, magnesium and then vitamins such as A, C, and K but also anti-oxidants. It’s really good for our skin and makes it soft and revitalized! It’s also good for reducing eye bags. In fact, a cold slice of cucumber on our eyes for 20-25 min can get rid of this annoying problem.
After cleaning my face, I applied the mixture and kept it for 3-5 minutes. After removing it, I applied a moisturising cream and started the day!
How to make a fresh hair mask
These two ingredients are also really good for our hair, so why not to use them also for a hair mask? Bananas, for example, are great for our scalp and control dandruff while cucumbers let the hair grow faster.
To make my mask even more efficient, I added also some drops of silk proteins.
They are really beneficial for our hair. With their sheathing and smoothing properties help hairs making them soft and shiny.
So if you have cucumber and banana at home just try it! 🙂
