. 1 ripe ripe Banana
. 1 T Honey
. 1/2 teaspoon Jojoba oil
. 1 T Yogurt
. 1 egg white
. 1 T Kaolin (white) clay

The best way to use this masque is while sitting in the tub because it is a bit messy. Apply to the entire face, neck and shoulder area. As it sits, keep applying more while you build the masque up as well as massage it in. Let sit for at least 10-15 minutes and then remove with a warm washcloth. Finish with a tonic or hydrosol on a cotton ball to remove any excess product from the skin, then moisturize as usual.
This is a wonderful softening and firming treatment in one.
