Rich in moisture, watermelon will hydrate oily skin from deep inside, moisturizing, and nourishing skin cells. Most oily skin is dehydrated beneath the surface and so the skin’s oil glands produce a lot of oils to make up for the lack of water. Such skin must be revitalized from the inside. Watermelon coupled with banana will water skin and regulate oil production.
DirectionsCut 1/4 of a small watermelon, extract only the flesh without seeds into a small bowl. Mash 1/2 ripe banana and the watermelon flesh with the back of a fork thoroughly. Now add 3 drops of acne-fighting tea tree essential oil and mix again. Using clean hands, apply the mixture onto your face. Let it settle for 15 minutes. Rinse off using cool water. Pat dry using a soft clean towel.
Sticky hair. Gather your hair away from your face into your ponytail and wear a headband to protect your hairline from the mask.
Skin reactions. Use a test patch in your inner elbow to make sure your skin isn’t allergic to any of the face mask ingredients.
Protect your clothes. Wear an old t-shirt or apron over your clothes to prevent the face mask from ruining your clothes.
