Beauty Tip: Banana Peel for Acne

Rubbing a banana peel on your face can be effective for acne and as overall facial mask.


I know it sounds a bit odd, but the peel of a banana contains potassium and lutein (an antioxidant) and will leave your skin feeling refreshed and nourished.

Just rub the peel all over your face. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse.  You will be amazed at how wonderful your skin feels.

Some other uses for banana peels according to re-nest.com:

1. Help Your Garden Grow: Bananas are naturally high in potassium and encourages plant growth. Use banana peel or puree entire banana and bury with soil.

2. Shoe Polish: Use the peel to make your kicks nice and shiny.

3. Stop the Itch: Rub the inside of a banana peel on a bug bite helps itch relief.

4. Pain Reliever: The oil in a banana peel will help relieve the pain from burns and scratches.

5. Wart Removal: Tape a piece of banana peel on a wart, continue until it’s gone.

6. Make Houseplants Gleam: Just like peels can shine shoes, they can also be used to make the leaves of plants shine.

7. Removing Splinters: Similar to wart removal, tape a piece of the peel over the splinter. The enzymes will help dislodge the splinter and heal the wound.
