Have you heard about the banana peel craze??
Women everywhere are swearing by the beauty benefits of aged banana peels rubbed on the face a few times a week. Acne relief, reduced dark circles under the eyes, sun damage improvements, wrinkle reduction and even endless claims of benefits that rival Botox!
It’s really simple, just save your peels and rub the inside of the peel on your face and let stand for 5 minutes or more. Remove with water and follow up with your nightly moisturizing routine.
Banana peels offer:
- Gentle exfoliation
- A shot of nutrients: Bananas contain vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, zinc, and potassium, all of which are helpful for skin health, and thus support healthy skin aging. Bananas are also rich in silica, a mineral that plays an important role in collagen synthesis.
- Bananas contain potassium, which can help support hydration and reduce fluid retention in the skin.
Just research the results. You may be really surprised and we can all give this one a try.
