Lush Cosmetics Banana, Peach and Almond Face Mask Recipe

This face mask is really amazing; it’s made of fresh ingredients you can find in your kitchen.


  • 2 medium, nicely ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons of runny honey
  • 1 fairly ripe peach (peeled and pitted – can be frozen since if not in season)
  • 2 generous tablespoons of ground almonds
  • Fine ground oatmeal

Directions: Blend the bananas, honey, and peach together to make rich mucilage.  Bananas are excellent skin softeners and have potent moisturizing properties.   Peaches are a good fruit choice for young skins as they cleanse and help remove excess sebum without stripping the skin.   Honey is excellent for all skins, especially if you are prone to breakout, as it helps keep spots at bay and reduces redness.  Add the ground almonds and mix together – the almonds are to help polish the skin and remove dead surface cells.  Finally, add enough oatmeal to make a paste that can be spread onto the face and neck.

Usage: Apply gently to face and neck area, being careful not to drag the skin.  Leave for 10-15 minutes and remove gently with warm water.
