If you have sensitive skin and often find your skin is red, itchy and irritated this simple recipe is super calming, soothing and nourishing. The best part is; its only three ingredients, and its more than likely you will have them sat in your fridge/cupboard at home.
The Soothing One
1/3 of a banana
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon of oat flour
Start out by mashing your banana piece well, try to get it as smooth as you can. Next, mix the milk and oat flour together until you get a smooth paste. Finally add the mashed banana to the paste and mix everything together well.
Apply your mask to a freshly cleansed face. Sit back and relax for 15 – 20 minutes, then rinse the mask off and apply your face cream whilst your skin is still slightly damp, to lock in that moisture.
We find this face mask is great for soothing any redness and itchiness in your skin. It has a great anti-inflammatory effect and helps soothe and nourish. Milk and oat flour will eliminate any dull looking skin and refresh your complexion whilst the banana provides your skin with many nutrients & antioxidants leaving it well-hydrated and protected.

Dry and dehydrated skin is one of the most common skin complaints that most of us will suffer from at some point in our lives. This simple mask is only two ingredients and will leave your skin feeling nourished and hydrated.
The Hydrating One
1/4 cup of honey (preferably Manuka)
1/2 ripe Avocado
Carefully cut your avocado in half removing the seed. Mash half of the avocado into a smooth paste then add your honey and stir well. Apply your mask to a clean face and sit back and relax for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask with warm water and then apply your favourite nourishing moisturiser whilst your skin is still damp.
Avocado is an excellent ingredient to use for dry skin as its rich in many oils. In addition, honey is effective in treating dry skin and its related problems such as eczema. This ingredient also helps protect the skin from UV rays and makes the skin look younger and more hydrated.
After the age of 30 your collagen supply decreases. The good news is antioxidants present in coffee prevent the skin from ageing. These antioxidants limit the production of free radicals which are responsible for damaging the skin.
The Anti-ageing One
1 Tablespoon of coffee powder
2 Tablespoons of milk
Its our simplest mask yet! Mix together your coffee and milk to create a paste. Once well mixed apply to a freshly cleansed face and leave for 15-20 minutes. Rinse the mask away with cold water. Whilst your skin is still wet apply your eye cream and moisturiser to lock in the hydration.
The lactic acid in the milk can help improve skin appearance and its firmness. This mixed with coffee which has many properties that helps improve the appearance of ageing in the skin and firmness is a simple but highly effective DIY mask. We advise applying this mask twice a week.
