Strawberry Banana Smoothie Mask

Strawberries are in season and they're one of my favorites.  They're really good for your skin too!  Strawberries leave your skin soft and smooth, and smell fabulous.

And, of course, strawberries always pair well with bananas.  Who can resist a strawberry banana smoothie for your face?  You probably have everything you need for this mask in your kitchen right now.  And it's really easy to make.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Mask
1 strawberry
1 tablespoon chopped banana
2 teaspoons yogurt
1/2 teaspoon honey
1-2 teaspoons finely ground oats

Chop the strawberry and put it in a small bowl.  Using a fork, mash until smooth.  Really ripe strawberries, even ones that are a bit overripe, work best because you can really get them nice and smooth.  It will make a difference in the feel of your mask.   

Add the banana to the bowl.  The measurements aren't super important; I just cut a small piece of banana.  I'd say it's about 1 tablespoon or so.

I'll eat the rest of the banana later.

Mash the banana with the strawberry.  Again, try to get it as smooth as possible.  You could use a tiny blender or food processor, like the "Mini Bullet" if you'd like.  Average sized blenders are just too big for this tiny amount of fruit, though.

It's easy enough to mash with a fork, though.

Next, I'll add about two teaspoons of yogurt.  The Greek-style yogurt is good because it's so thick, but you can use any type of yogurt you have at home.  I'm using plain, but you can use any flavor too -- vanilla, strawberry, even lemon.  Use what you have on hand.

I'll add the extra yogurt to my leftover banana for a nice snack.

Then, a drizzle of honey and 1 teaspoon finely ground oats (just put some uncooked oats in a blender).  Mix it up good.  If your mask seems a bit too runny still, add another teaspoon of ground oats.

Looks pretty, right?

Now, massage over clean skin and let set for about 10 minutes.  You'll feel this one working -- it tingles.  If your skin is sensitive, take it off after about 2-5 minutes.  Remove with a warm cloth and rinse well.

Your skin will feel super soft and smooth.  If you have any leftover, you can keep in in the fridge, but use it within 2 days.
