You can use banana skins for different health and beauty benefits. I am sure you all eat the banana and throw away its skin. But you don’t know that banana skin is the most nutritious part of the fruit, so it seems a total shame throwing it out.
Cut two small pieces of the banana peel and apply them on the area under your eyes. This will help you rejuvenate this area and will make your skin softer. Also it will prevent wrinkles or if you already have some, after a few uses, they will be erased. Furthermore, if you wake up with under eyes bags, you can be sure they will disappear if you apply a cold banana peel on them.
Here’s a list of the most frequent uses of banana peels:
Cut pieces of the banana skin and then get a plaster or a tape. Place the outside of the peel onto the mask. Next, place it directly on your wart. Leave it overnight and make a new one every night for about a week. Your wart will be significantly reduced or even gone.
You can also apply this method to treat a splinter or anything stuck into your skin. Just tape the piece of the banana skin around the area and it will help to suck the splinter out of the skin and be stuck onto the banana peel after leaving it overnight.
All you need to do is chop off a small piece of banana and then just rub the inside of the peel onto your teeth for about a minute. It will take off the stains and you can do this a couple times per week. You will notice a significant improvement in the whiteness of your teeth.
Itchy Bite / Acne Remedy
Banana skin is a highly anti-inflammatory. So, if you have an itchy bite or inflamed and rashy skin, or pimples and acne, you can take a piece of a banana skin and rub it over the problematic area or hold it onto the area. You will see that the inflammation has reduced

You can slice them and put them in stir-fries or cut bananas in half and sprinkle some cinnamon or dark chocolate over the top and put them in the oven on 190 degrees for 10-15 minutes. You will have nicely roasted bananas which you can eat whole.
And of course, you can eat banana skin the way it is. Just make sure you wash it well before consuming it.
It is so good to get all those nutrients into your body. If you eat the whole banana, including the skin, you will double the nutritional value out of it.
