Bananas enjoy a ubiquitous status in our lives but little did we know that the fruit will make it’s way on our beauty shelves too. Haven’t we all tried at least one DIY remedy with bananas? Not kidding, but bananas have been one of the most buzz-worthy ingredients in the skincare industry and are touted as effective against signs of ageing, and to soothe dry and parched skin. A healthy source of vitamin A and C – both of which are powerful antioxidants, potassium, and magnesium – products with banana as an ingredient help soothe skin irritation.
While home remedies with bananas for hair and skin are quite common, here’s a list of banana-based skincare products infused with this ingredient. If you’re looking for hydrated, plump, and younger-looking, you might want to give these products a try.
