My love of simple beauty solutions began when I was a teen.  In fact, it began with this recipe: 

Banana Facial for Dry Skin

-mash half of a banana

-add 2 TBS olive oil

Mash and blend well.  Apply mixture to your clean face.  Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with warm followed by cool water.  Pat dry.

 

When my dear friend Molly commented later on my glowing skin, I was hooked.
