Being beautiful can be very easy on your pocket if you choose to use natural beauty ingredients.Bananas are my favorite fruit because they are not only packed with health benefits, but are also one of the excellent natural beauty products, for treating various beauty ailments.

Beauty uses of Bananas

Bananas are accessible at all times of the year and help a great deal to keep you healthy and beautiful. From now on never ever throw a ripe banana because it can easily be used for skin care . Read on to learn about the amazing ways of using bananas in your daily beauty routine.

Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash with warm and cold water alternatively. The results are really amazing, you will experience soft and supple feet just by one application

Acne, blemishes and pimples

Bananas are anti-bacterial in nature and are excellent in treating skin blemishes, acne and pimples. The antioxidants and vitamins in bananas restore collagen in the skin and are useful for anti-aging skin too. Make a mix by mashed bananas with a tablespoon of milk, a pinch of nutmeg, a tablespoon of oatmeal and apply it on a clean face. Wash it once it is completely dry. Regular use helps to deal with acne, blemishes and pimples to a great deal.

Dry Eyes

Eating a banana every day can be very useful, if you suffer from dry eyes. Since bananas are very rich in potassium, they help to control the balance of sodium and release of fluid in your cells, which results in preventing dry eyes. Simply eat banana a day and get rid of dry eyes.

Dandruff , frizzy and dry hair

If you have dry, frizzy hair or flaky scalp, and dandruff then banana hair mask is just for you. With regular use the banana hair mask can increase the moisture content of your hair, smooth frizz, and soothe your itchy scalp immensely. Make a mix by using 2 to 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 to 3 ripe mashed bananas. Before applying the mask wet your hair in the shower to provide moisture. Next, apply the mask over your hair making sure to massage the mix into each strand, the roots, and your scalp.

After application wrap your hair in a towel, plastic wrap, or a shower cap and allow the mix to saturate your hair for at least thirty minutes. After thirty minutes, rinse, shampoo, and condition as usual.

Hair loss

Take a ripe banana and mix it with a cup of fresh yogurt. Apply this paste on the scalp and leave it on the scalp for an hour. Then wash as usual. Do this religiously for a month and you will definitely feel decrease in hair loss and at the same time the condition and texture of your hair will improve tremendously.

Dry Skin

Bananas are rich source of Vitamin A and Potassium, and they are very good at softening and hydrating the skin. Take a ripe or over ripe banana, and mash it in a bowl. Add a spoon of granulated sugar to the banana mash. Apply this mix to your face and hands. Banana mash works as an excellent exfoliate scrub and moisturizer for buffing away dead skin. It is a very effective and cheap natural remedy.
