DIY recipe 4 beauty benefits of banana you will definitely love

Banana can be used topically for skin of all types. Containing anti aging and anti oxidant properties, a face mask will gently nourish, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize aging, acne-prone, dry, normal and combination skin.

  • Published:

We all know that banana is an instant energy booster and a perfect post workout food. But it is also packed with numerous beauty benefits, improving dry skin to limp hair.

Here are top four ways you can profit from the fruit's beauty benefits.

  • Banana face mask for glowing skin.

Banana can be used topically for skin of all types. Containing anti aging and anti oxidant properties, a face mask will gently nourish, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize aging, acne-prone, dry, normal and combination skin. You can also add extra skin friendly kitchen ingredients for a powerful face mask.

For oily skin, combine 1 mashed banana with lemon juice and honey. For dry skin, use 1 mashed banana, with 1 tablespoon pureed avocado, and olive oil.

  • Exfoliate skin cells.

Gently slough off dead cells on the surface of the skin using banana and other skin friendly kitchen ingredients, such as coconut oil and oatmeal.

Oatmeal has an abrasive texture that will help scour off excess dead cells on the skin surface while banana and coconut milk will keep the oatmeal from over exfoliating skin and hydrate and nourish skin.

  • Smoothen rough cracked heels.

If your heels look and feel rough, pamper them with a luxurious foot scrub to soften and smoothen them. After soaking your feet in warm lemon water, massage 2 to 3 mashed bananas onto your feet, concentrating on your heels.

Rinse off with tepid water and say hello to lovely soft heels.

  • Reduce puffy eyes.

The inner surface of the peel can cool and reduce puffy red eyes and remove under-eye circles. Place the peel over your tired eyelids and relax for 10 to 15 minutes.

When the time is up, remove it and wash your eyes with cool water. Eating them also helps reduce puffy eyes, as these fruits are rich in potassium and counteract fluid retention caused by sodium.
