- Add 1 table spoon honey and mix well.
- Add 1 table spoon lemon juice to the mixture and mix everything together, to make a paste.

As you can see, the recipe is quite simply and doesn’t require any complex ingredients. We already know the benefits provided from bananas, but you should also know that honey acts as a great ingredient for your skin. It hydrates the skin and retains the natural glow. In addition, lemon juice also works as a wonderful ingredient as it exfoliates your skin, thus reducing acne and scars.
If you don’t have the time to do this, you can also rub the fruit on your skin and that works well too. As most of the beauty products manufactured nowadays is filled with chemicals, it’s best to go natural. That way, you will know that the products you prepare are non-toxic and will help you too.
