Lisa’s DIY Vitality Facial Mask

Lisa Consiglio Ryan shared her smoothie to enhance breast health on Goddess Huntress last October.  She is back with another great recipe and this time it is a mask that you can make out of yummy staples laying around your kitchen! Lisa says…

My favorite facial mask is a combo of bananas (moisturizer), honey, lemon (exfoliate), and cucumbers. The cucumbers make this mask so fresh and clean. Cooling, hydrating.  The best part is that they reduce swelling and water retention.

This DIY facial mask is a great pick me up after the winter dryness.  This is a super way to revitalize and moisturize at the same time.

DIY Vitality Facial Mask: 


  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (from lemon, squeezed or juiced)

Let’s make it:

Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid by putting it in a glass bowl, immersed in hot water. Put the banana and cucumber in a food processor. Add the liquid honey and lemon juice and mix until you have a smooth substance.

Spread the mask gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear.

Now get comfy, lie down and leave the mask on for 20 minutes.

Wash it off with lukewarm water and gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
