Banana Peel and Pulp for Glowing skin - Jamaican Beauty Tip

Beauty Tips - Logo

woman peeling bananaBanana as a home beauty aid is quite popular around the world! In Jamaica, especially, women use both the pulp and peels on their skin for that fantastic glow. After peeling the banana, they rub the inner part of the peels on the face and neck and follow it up with a banana mask made by crushing the banana pulp with a few drops of olive oil added to it. This is allowed to stay for about 15 minutes and then rinsed off with cold water to get fresh, smooth, radiant and rejuvenated facial skin.

    I heard about the banana thing and thinking of the potassium content, I crushed a potassium pill and made a paste then applied it to the wart and covered it with a band aid. Mich easier than a banana peal. It worked.
