  1. Moisturizing face mask: Mash up a banana and smooth onto your face and neck. Let sit for 10-20 minutes. The banana will moisturize your skin and leave it smoother and softer.
  2. Sugar scrub (for dry skin): Smash a ripe banana and add sugar to it. Apply it on your skin and rub gently. While banana moisturizes dry skin, the sugar granules help to remove dead cells to reveal brighter skin.
  3. Acne mask:Take one banana, a teaspoon of milk, a pinch of nutmeg and a tablespoon of oatmeal powder. Mash it (or put in a blender) and apply to clean skin. Let dry before rinsing thoroughly.
  4. Lemon face pack (for oily skin): If you have oily skin, add a tablespoon of milk and two teaspoons of lemon juice to smashed banana pulp. Apply the pack on your face and wait for 20 minutes. Wash with clean water.
  5. Honey pack (for dry hair): Mix three tablespoons of honey with ripe banana and apply it on your hair while it is still wet. Wait for half an hour and shampoo. This pack will increase the moisture content in your hair and your scalp will be soothed.
  6. Healing of the skin: Banana peels are surprisingly helpful to your skin, as they are super soothing. They can speed up the healing process of a bruise or bug bite.
  7. Teeth whitening: Rub the inner white side of a peel against your freshly brushed teeth for about 2 minutes every day. The combination of plaque-busting, astringent salicylic acid and gently bleaching citric acid in banana peels will effectively lighten surface stains on teeth without wearing down the enamel. You’ll have bright pearly whites within a week!
  8. Reduce puffy eyes: Potassium helps to counter salt intake that leads to fluid retention. Rubbing pureed bananas underneath the eyes can help reduce swelling.
  9. Cracked heel salve:Mash up two ripe bananas and apply on the heels of clean, dry feet. You can then put on old socks or keep your feet raised for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. The banana penetrates deep into dry, cracked skin to create soft, smooth feet.
  10. Removing warts: Take a piece of banana peel and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a bandage or surgical tape.
