1 Ingredient Wonder: Banana

Bananas are high in Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Potassium and Vitamin K making them an ideal regenerating means.

For Wrinkles: Take the peel of the banana and rub it on fine lines and wrinkles to help diminish their appearance and prevent new lines from forming. The vitamin C and other antioxidants help increase circulation in the skin and boost collagen production. Using the peel of the banana gives an extra bit of exfoliation to reveal smoother and fresher-looking skin.

For Blemishes: Bananas are an effective treatment for blemishes.  The potassium in bananas suffocates the bacteria in cells, helping blemishes heal at a quicker rate.

For Hands: Banana is an excellent regenerative remedy for skin. Banana masks can be used as emergency remedies for weather and chapped hands skin.  Simply mash a banana, rub all over hands and let sit for 20 minutes.  Rinse in warm water then moisturize.

Skin Irritations: Irritation from bug bites, poison ivy and other allergic skin reactions can be soothed with the flesh or peel of a banana. The anti-inflammatory properties calm irritation while vitamins and antioxidants increase circulation for healing and the antibacterial properties heal any infection.
