Get Super-Soft Lips!

Combine ingredients in a small container. Apply a thin layer on the lips and let sit for 10 minutes then scrub away for perfectly soft lips!
Get Flawless Skin!
When you're stressed, skin can look red and blotchy. Combat ruddiness with mashed bananas, which contain vitamins A and E (which are great for treating flakiness and toning down redness). The heavy cream in this mask also contains elastin to leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
Mix this into a nice mousse. Add the water last—a little at a time to get a nice consistency. Apply to the face, leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse.
