Do you guys like bananas? What about in your skincare?
Sounds a little wonky, but it’s good stuff. Banana is full of benefits. The good benefits…the kind that make you pretty
Here are some of my favorite benefits of banana:
Moisturizes – banana is rich in potassium so it hydrates and moisturizes the skin making it soft and supple.
Oil Control – banana is a great exfoliater that removes dead skin and gets rid of excess oil.
Anti-aging effects – banana has been called “Nature’s botox” by Google. It fights age spots, prevents fine lines and wrinkles.
Treats acne – banana reduces inflammation and destroys bacteria.
Lightens dark spots – this includes acne scars, tiny moles, just normal everyday dark spots.
Treats puffy eyes – banana calms the blood vessels under your eyes to decrease puffiness.
Treats itchy skin – includes mosquito bites, dry skin, rough patches, whatever.
One of my favorite banana products is the OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Face Primer. This is made with Vitamins C + E and banana powder-inspired pigments.
I’m obsessed with this primer. It improves make-up wear and is perfect for instant blurring and color correction. It applies like a cream, and it glow-boosting and brightens your skin! Finally it helps smooths skin and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
You can wear this product as a primer, a highlighter, or by itself for a natural glow. I saw so many reviews of people who have straight up quit wearing make-up because this primer is so good, so it’s all they need.
If you want to take the banana a step further, you can pair this primer with the Banana Bright Eye Créme. This product is a brightening, vitamin C and banana-rich eye cream. It helps with aging, reduces the look of dark circles, and improves concealer application!
What about you? Do you add banana to your skincare?
