3 Banana DIYs That Will Totally Transform Your Skin

August 4, 2017 by Stephanie Melia
shefinds | beauty

The best beauty products are the ones that are super easy to use and the ones that are useful in multiple ways. That’s why for this weekend’s DIY project, I’m going to show you how to use bananas for three different beauty concerns. In case you didn’t know, bananas can help rid you of acne, brighten your skin and prevent wrinkles. Check out the super simple DIYs below to get started:

If you have acne prone skin, bananas contain tons of vitamins that help reduce inflammation (mainly vitamin A), as well as vitamin C, which can reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Mix 2 tablespoons of mashed banana with a tablespoon of baking soda and a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice for a skin-calming mask that will help with acne and dark acne spots and scars.

For dull skin that could use some brightening, the citric acid found in bananas will immediately act as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin. The vitamin C? It’s an amazing brightening agent. To create this DIY, mix 2 tablespoons of mashed banana with one tablespoon of honey. Honey is super soothing and will work with the banana to help you achieve an awesome natural glow.

Finally, if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or you just want to get an early start on prevention, bananas are perfect for that. They contain vitamin C that boosts collagen production which leads to firmer skin. Mix 2 tablespoons of mashed banana with 1 tablespoon of cold yogurt (this will feel so good on your face) and add a little lemon juice. Yogurt works along with the bananas to anti-age your skin and your skin will feel so rejuvenated.
