All you have to do is browse a few birthday cards before it becomes really apparent: people have an aversion to getting older. We’re all for age-acquired wisdom and a lifetime of memories to look back on, but we also wouldn’t turn down eternally youthful skin!
Our team put together some face mask recipes we love for keeping skin looking youthful. Many of these ingredients are fresh, so your skin will benefit from the high nutrient content.
Banana + Raw Honey + Yogurt Anti-Aging Face Mask
Take one ripe banana in a glass bowl and mash it properly.
Now add three tbsp of plain yogurt and one tbsp of raw honey to it.
Pour it in a saucepan and warm this paste on low flame for about a minute so that its texture becomes even.
Make sure that your paste is only a bit warm and not hot.
Apply it on the face as well as your neck as a mask with help of a brush.
Leave it for ten to fifteen minutes.
Wash your face with cool water.
How it Works:

It is rich in Vitamin C and A that hydrates and moisturizes our skin and gives it a youthful look. Yogurt is an antioxidant that prevents skin damage from sun, blemishes, and wrinkles. It is a rich source of lactic acid that slows down the process of aging and keeps the skin moisturized. Raw honey is a humectant that acts as a moisturizing agent and keeps the skin hydrated.
