Banana consists of high levels of antioxidants which have a real impact on achieving a healthy natural balance in the skin. It is excellent for treating bruises, allergies, wrinkles, dry skin and even acne.

Banana peel is high in potassium, which makes for a great treatment in itself for acne, wart, poison ivy and psoriasis.

High in nutrients and vitamins, using a banana scrub will give you soft, supple moisturized healthy skin in no time by gently removing dead skin cells that we all accumulate.

3-4 tbsp granulated sugar

¼ tsp pure vanilla extract (you may use a different one if you prefer)
