One of the tastiest and not to mention healthy fruits is the banana. With so many different vitamins and minerals, bananas are officially classified as a “super food” by health professionals and nutritionists.  However, the banana has been shown to contain plenty of beauty benefits as well, some of which will surprise you with how much it can do:

  • The banana peel, seen rotting in landfills and used in countless comedy productions over the years, is surprisingly a very good source of potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C.  It also has many uses including clearing off bug bites and poison ivy, reducing itching and can even serve as a teeth whitener. Banana peels are also well known for removing warts and eczema.
  • Bananas themselves are also good for moisturizing. It’s fairly simple to do, start by mixing 1/2 ripe mashed banana with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply the mixture to clean skin. After 15 minutes finished by washing the mixture off.
  • Not only is it good for moisturizing, bananas may even work as an anti-aging mask! The mask is easy to make. Begin with mashing or blending 1/2 ripe banana with 1/2 avocado and wear for 15 to 30 minutes.Rinse off with cool water.
