Reasons I started using banana peel on my face

We all know that fruits and vegetables are a powerhouse of micronutrients and nourishes our body from inside but did you know some of the peels have a great effect externally as well?

Like everybody, we used to throw away the banana peels but we later found out that using them on your skin has so many benefits and I decided to try it for myself.

This helped us make the most of the fruit and well, who does not love glowing and healthy skin. After using it for a few weeks, I saw a lot of changes and well, it soon became a part of my skincare routine.

Here is how banana peels benefitted my skin:

  • Reduced puffiness

Banana peels helped reduce puffiness around my eyes. It did take a few days to see the effect but it soon became my go-to solution whenever I needed to see the effect.

  • Brighter skin

It enhances the natural glow of your skin and makes it look fresh and plump. You can evidently see the difference and your skin starts to look healthier after a point.

  • Reduces acne scars

It did work for me that way and this is probably due to the enzymes present in the peel which helps scars heal and eventually fade away.

  • It moisturizes your skin

If your skin is on the drier side then it will work well for you. After using it a few times, the skin starts to feel hydrated and less dry.

Here are some benefits that I reaped after using banana peel on my face. Make sure to confirm that you do not have any allergies by doing a patch test on your arm. And if you are being treated for any skin condition, speak to your dermatologist before trying this out.
