Acne is among the most frequent skin diseases affecting teens and adults. You don’t have to suffer; the issue can be solved as quickly as it begins with a basic home product.

Acne may be aggravating, unpleasant, and difficult to cure, but dark patches and permanent scars can develop if left untreated, leaving you irritated and confused. Sure, many acne treatments are available, but many of them cost a fortune and even worsen the condition.

If only there were an affordable, natural acne treatment…oh wait, there is! Instead of discarding your leftover banana peel, preserve it and use it to get rid of acne.

How Does it work?

  • Banana peels are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E, which help to maintain healthy skin.
  • Because banana peels are abundant in manganese, iron, and zinc, they assist in soothing irritated skin.
  • Banana peels are a natural antibacterial, which may help prevent acne-causing bacterial infections.
  • Banana peels are high in antioxidants, which help to battle acne-causing bacteria.
  • Banana peels contain a lot of enzymes that moisturize the skin, repair scars, and prevent new acne from forming.
  • Bananas’ high starch content helps dry off excess oil that clogs pores.
