Who needs a facial acne wash when you have bananas? I never thought that something as ordinary as the banana peel could be useful in so many ways.
Before my discovery about this natural remedy, banana peels in our home would go straight to the waste-bin, and if I don’t feel lethargic, these peels will make it to the flower bed to decompose.
A couple of months ago, I read a blog on how to treat acne in just 4 days by rubbing the banana peels in the affected area.
It piqued my curiosity, and since I occasionally suffered from hormonal breakouts, I believe this is the best time to experiment if this remedy works.
Therefore, I religiously rubbed the peels for 4 days, and I could vouch my zit dried up and cleared fast than expected. Did it work you ask? Surely it did.
How to Apply:
Make sure to use the black/yellow banana instead of green ones. While rubbing, the interior part of the peel deteriorates into black which will result on some smut on your face.
Let the smut particles stay on your face for another 10-15 minute before rinsing with tepid water.
Banana peels contain an antioxidant known as lutein , and rich of potassium that soothes skin and helps remove infection from your skin.
