Banana is amazing, not only for the skin, but also for your overall health. Bananas contain many nutrients that make it the perfect addition to lots of natural face masks. Some of the nutrients in bananas include:

  • Potassium: Hydrates and moisturizes dehydrated skin.
  • B Vitamins: Protects the skin against the damaging free radicals that cause oxidative stress and premature aging.
  • Vitamin A: Heals dry withered skin, as well as helps in fading acne scars and dark spots, while smoothing out aging skin.
  • Zinc: Fights acne causing germs.
  • Vitamin C: Necessary for your body to produce collagen, as well as fighting off free radicals and for oily skin control.
  • Vitamin E: Protects skin from UV damage as well as slows down the process of aging and fights free radical damage to skin cells.
  • Lectin: Destroys bacteria that causes acne and pimples.
  • Amino Acids: Nourishes skin as well as strengthens connective tissue and helps maintain skin elasticity and strength.

Banana and banana peels are easy and affordable to use as homemade remedies for treating acne and pimples. You can apply the inside of a banana peel directly onto your acne to reduce inflammation and destroy bacteria. Also, you can create a face mask with mashed banana, honey and turmeric to brighten, reduce acne and moisturize your skin. Leave it on for five to 10 minutes, then wash this off with cold water and pat your face dry.

Banana is a great exfoliating application, which helps slough off the excess sebum, or oil, on the skin’s surface. It also contains moisture, potassium and vitamins E and C, which all promote clear glowing skin. Rich in potassium, bananas hydrate and moisturize dry skin, making it soft and supple.

If your skin is peeling and dry, simply apply a banana face mask on your face. If you’ve got oily skin, use a simple banana face mask by adding a few drops of lemon juice and honey.
