Don’t throw! 10 unusual ways to use banana peels

The most common result of banana peels is throwing them in the trash. Yet this often-overlooked fruit peel has all kinds of miraculous uses. The peel can be used in your kitchen as a cleaning product or as a beauty product. I have collected the most practical uses of banana peels that are sure to change how you feel about this fruit.

  1. They help reduce acne.

Banana peels contain vitamin C and vitamin E, and they also contain potassium, zinc, iron, and manganese. These nutrients can soothe inflamed skin and reduce acne breakouts. Additionally, banana peels contain lutein and carotenoids, which are fat-soluble compounds that help fight inflammation and acne breakouts.

Rub the banana peel on the skin and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse your skin. Repeat twice a day.
