Banana Beauty Benefits

Banana is extremely good for your hair and skin since it has natural moisturizing properties. Banana is rich in minerals and vitamins (Vitamin E, C, B and A) that help to promote healthy skin and hair recovery. It is a rich storehouse of potassium and natural oils that make banana an excellent emollient. Tryptophan is an amino acid, contained in bananas and this makes it perfect for beauty treatments.

Easy Banana Beauty Tips:

• If you want to moisturize your skin instantly, take a ripe banana and smash it. Apply the pulp on your skin and wait for fifteen to twenty minutes. Your skin will feel moisturized and soft.
• Mash a ripe banana till it becomes creamy. Apply it on your face and wait for fifteen minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water followed by cold water. Regular practice would prevent wrinkles.
• If your feet feel dry, application of banana pulp on the cracked and dry areas would help. Just wait for ten minutes after application and wash off alternately with trepid and cold water. Your feet become softer.

Banana Beauty Recipes And Applications On Skin:

• Sugar Scrub (for dry skin): Smash 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.
• Strawberry Body Scrub: Cut a banana and a few strawberries in small pieces and place them in a bowl. Knead the pieces till the mixture becomes smooth and add two spoons of olive oil. Add three spoons of sugar. Apply it on your body and scrub gently. This exfoliant is gentle on your skin and this practice can be done once every week to get rid of dead skin cells.

•Lemon Face Pack (for oily skin): If you have an oily skin, add a spoon of milk and two spoons of lemon juice to smashed banana pulp. Apply the pack on your face to wait for twenty minutes. Wash with clean water.
•Honey Face Pack (for normal to dry skin): Take mashed banana and add a spoon of honey to it. Apply on your face and leave it on for fifteen minutes. Both banana and honey have natural moisturizing properties that hydrate dry skin and make your skin feel supple.
•Sandalwood Face Pack To Make Skin Glow: Mix one spoons of smashed banana with one spoon of sandalwood powder and honey. Apply it on your face to get glowing and young looking skin.

Banana Beauty Recipes And Applications On Hair:
Banana is very good for hair and scalp. It imparts luster to dull hair and rough hair becomes manageable. Regular application of banana is known to control dandruff and moisturize dry hair. It helps to soften hair and take care of damaged hair. Here are a few easy recipes you can make at home and try out for your hair:

•Avocado Hair Conditioner: Mix ripe banana with avocado and add coconut milk to the mixture. Apply it on your hair and wait for twenty minutes. The pack conditions damaged hair and makes hair soft.
•Yoghurt Pack (To Treat Hair Loss): Mix ripe banana pulp with yoghurt. Apply the smooth paste on your scalp and rinse with cool water after one hour. Shampoo as usual. This hair pack is known to reduce hair loss and improve the texture of your hair.

• Honey Pack (for dry hair): Mix three spoons 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.

Krupa, I understand. But we usually post articles that we are sure about- usually makeup product reviews and some beauty articles. We hold articles that we are not sure about, mostly nail arts, and some others… so don’t be disappointed. Good articles from you are never held up. :)

Also, as I said in my earlier comment, this was sent months back, earlier than yours.

Banana is my allllll time fav fruit..though keeping an arms distance these days as wanna shed off pounds. Very informative tips. Only prob with me is ..whenever I use any food product on my face/hair…hubby has sarcastic comment to offer.. :tongue: e.g. easiest & my most fav tip for my greasy hair is ACV rinse..but then he says..I smell like pickle.. :chewnails

Hi,
Im probably commenting on this after almost a year. But I just came across this one.
The tips are really cool and I just had one querry. I’ve heard that ripe bananas tend to turn your hair grey. Is that true? I just wanted to be sure before I try the Banana honey mask for hair.
