According to Healthline, banana peel, rich in antioxidants, fibre and essential nutrients, helps brighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. It even acts as a moisturiser and helps in hydrating the skin. Several studies have found banana peel to have anti-inflammatory properties, too.

It can also be used to relieve itch in case of psoriasis by applying the peel on the affected area.

Turns out, banana peels can also be eaten.

So, how can you use the peel for your skin? “Gently rub the inside of banana peels (the white part) on your face. Allow to remain for about 15 mins and then wash off with cold water,” Bhagyashree suggested.
