Why Banana, Sour Cream and Honey?
Banana - Banana pulp has soothing, moistening and smoothing effects.
Sour Cream - Sour cream is rich in lactic acid and helps soften and remove dead skin cells.
Honey - Honey has the ability to absorb and retain moisture which helps keep skin hydrated and fresh. Honey has natural antioxidant and antimicrobial properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays while supporting the ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin. Another advantage to using honey as a natural skin care ingredient is for the treatment of acne. Honey absorbs impurities from the pores in the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent.
