Why You Should Add Bananas To Your Skincare Routine As Soon As Possible?
These days, it seems everyone is making banana bread. In fact, the Instagram hashtag #bananabread has had over 1.4 million posts. It makes sense. This classic comfort food is easy to make, tastes delicious, and allows you to take advantage of produce that has gone bad, minimizing food waste.
The recent comeback of banana bread has given us a different inspiration. We already use it in our skin care routine. Please hear us out. Bananas are filled with vitamins A and C, two powerful antioxidants. They also contain magnesium, which has an effect on the overall appearance of the skin – and they have an anti-inflammatory effect, which means they can help relieve irritation.
So, ready to add a banana to your skincare routine?
