Banana peelBanana and banana peel help treat acne, reduce pimples and remove wrinkles. You just need to rub the peel on the area with the pimple until the inside of the peel gets dark, leave it on for a while, and clean your face with warm water. Repeat the procedure for a few days. And to remove wrinkles, apply a little mashed banana to the wrinkled area. Bananas and their peels are useful for skin nourishment and hydration because they contain a lot of vitamins and minerals like potassium, magnesium, fiber, and protein
CucumberCucumber is also considered to be a good product for your skin both alone and in combination with yogurt. A cucumber mask cools down the skin, revitalizes and hydrates it, and reduces swelling. It's good for relieving sunburns and getting rid of puffiness around the eyes. To do the latter just put two slices of cucumber on your eyes and relax.
