Written By:

Don't know about you, but banana has been that one snack which has satiated our hunger pangs one too many times!

However, what you didn't know is that it can do more than keep you well-fed. From drawing out toxins from skin, controlling oil production to clearing marks, banana face masks can be a literal saviour for your skin!

Banana contains vitamins A, B and E, which together form a powerful antioxidant that can slough off dead skin cells, unclog pores, tighten skin and promote regeneration of new skin cells.

Not just that, fatty acids present in banana help the skin lock in the moisture better, keeping the skin well-hydrated and supple.
