Going Bananas

The Philippines is among one of the Asian countries known as producers of banana plants. It is why most Filipinos are pimple free. You could not find a monkey with pimples, not ever! Kidding aside, I made a research on this fruit. I found out there is truth in this widely circulated jokes.

By pressing regularly the inside, of banana peel on our forehead and our cheeks, it tightens the skin thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It may not produce an instant result. But by doing it regularly and continuously the skin will look fresher, more toned and healthier. Banana peel speeds up healing of bruises because of its natural healing properties. It helps regenerate and restore skin cells. Banana peels can be used to heal warts. Cut the peel to the size of the wart and tape it in place. It takes around five to seven days to heal the wart completely.

Banana fruit can be used as anti wrinkle topical treatment. It can help detoxify the skin. When used as exfoliating mask. Combine one fourth cup of mashed banana and honey or other ant-oxidants rich fruits. Another way is by combining mashed banana fruit with white cosmetic clay. Mashed banana is used as facial mask to brighten up the skin and clear up acne. If you have no time to buy facial mask, mash one half of banana fruit. Add two teaspoon of flaxseed oil and four to five drops of rose water. Mix them all together to make a fine paste. Apply on your face and neck. Relax for twenty to thirty minutes, then rinse face with cool water. Bananas are rich in oils the helps skin from drying out. The soothing properties of banana fruit prevent acne and other types of imbalances causing inflammation.

Hi JP, Today I taped 3 banana peels to my face and went out shopping. My face is completely pimple free now but everyone was laughing and making fun of me!!!

Don't do this activity outdoors....

Oh wow! I love natural skin care recipes! I currently use lemon scrub every night before going to bed. I just use a slice of lemon and use it as a scrub for my face. Sometimes, I would mix lemon and oatmeal too. It makes a good scrub as well. Lemon is also good for the skin. It helps to lighten up dark spots and even out skin tones as well as fight acne. I think I'm going to try bananas next. Thanks for sharing Ate JP!

@FarmGirl-Welcome to my blog. It is good to see you. I like bananas because of its nutritional values. I never thought this fruit can do wonders to our skin.

Jolly Princess said...

@Janz- Yes I had used lemmon scrub and really good for my skin. It is natural and no additives. I will use this banana paste as alternative. :)

@Jean- I will try it myself. I like eating bananas because of its magnesium and potassium contents. Now, I could use the banana peel on my face before finally throwing it on the trash bag. :)

I wish I could grow bananas! I am LOL at Ryan's comment. I'm gonna tape my entire face with banana peels to remove all wrinkles and pimples. Well, if I do least people won't see the wrinkles and pimples.

interesting banana info!

Jolly Princess said...

@Ryan - Do not worry I will heed your advice. :)

@Nensa and Jill - I will try this myself. I am glad I can still make use of the banana peel before throwing them away. :)

@Out on the prairie - Please be careful not to drop the banana peel while holding your camera. I do not want to miss those lovely photos. :)

@atsexylegandbody - Thanks Colin. Glad to see you again. :)
