Today’s the day that Fairtrade’s Facebook challenges. As you will have seen from my previous blog ‘Fearne Cotton, Alistair McGowan and Harry Hill go Made for the Fairtrade Facebook Challenge’, I’m up for the ‘Fairtrade your mum‘ challenge and have already started having fun with Fairtrade fruit and with the help of my willing accomplice (my 8yo).
Using the brilliant Wean Machine, the no fuss, no mess baby food machine (which I’ll be reviewing for making baby food shortly!) we made a lovely banana facemask. Now I say lovely, as you’ll see from the photos it definitely doesn’t look lovely, but I can assure you my skin felt fabulous afterwards.
We made simply squidged a banana with some honey and a little lemon juice and voila!
As a fan of fruity facemasks too, Tilly Beazeley, the inventor of the Wean Machine, has also sent some of her favourite recipes for me to share, why don’t you give these a go. They’re not only fantastically easy to make, they are completely natural and cheaper than most over the counter concoctions.
Take a couple of fresh strawberries and mix with a tablespoon of natural yoghurt – spread on face and wash off after 10-15 minutes.
Mix half an avocado with a tablespoon of runny honey – spread on face and wash off after 10 minutes. This one is particularly good for dry/mature skin.
Have you got any facemask recipes you’d like to share – if you dare, I’d love to see you wearing yours too.
