Anyone care for a DIY collagen face mask? Here is how to incorporate a DIY collagen mask into your skincare routine that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Collagen Face Mask can help to firm and tighten sagging skin, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the size of pores, hydrate and get rid of the dead and rough skin cells that make the skin look dull and hamper the skin’s natural cell-renewal process.
Such benefits are made possible by the essential skin nutrients in Collagen:-
- Amino acids and peptides: The building blocks of healthy, smooth, and clear skin;
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): Actively causes the production of growth factor receptors that stimulate cell renewal, eliminate the cell-damaging and age-inducing free radicals, and help to restore the skin’s moisture and elasticity

For those that want to know more on the ingredients, e.g. Why banana? Why yogurt? Why milk?
Simple! Banana is one of the best source of moisturizing and anti-aging skin nutrients as it contains large quantities of vitamins and minerals, esp. Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Zinc, Iodine, Vitamin A, B, E, and F that are essential to the proper functioning of the skin. In combination with Fishkol Collagen Powder, this face mask helps to nourish and moisturize the skin while helping to restore the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
Whereas, yogurt has exfoliating properties, it helps to close the pores and milk has lactic acid, a natural alpha hydroxyl acid, or AHA, which helps to remove the dead skin cells that block the pores.
