Mum reveals easy hack to keep skin smooth and soft using BANANA PEELS
A mum has revealed how she keeps her skin smooth and soft by scrubbing it with a banana peel - spending less than £1 on the routine a week.
Abena Adaziwaa Moss, 28, who is originally from Ghana but now lives in the UK, discovered the hack when she was pregnant with her first baby.
"I had so much face hyperpigmentation and lots of black sports," she said.
"I felt like I wasn't beautiful and didn’t want to show my face to anyone.
"The banana peel was a lifesaver. I started to do a little reading and I saw somewhere that banana peel is good for the skin.
"I doubted it at first until I tried for few days and it did magic for me."
Abena simply takes the peel after she's finished a banana and covers it with a little sugar before rubbing it on her face.
Although she chooses brown sugar, she says any type of sugar or even salt can be used.
The mum focuses on dry areas, aiming to use the peel and sugar to exfoliate and moisturise.
She said: "You need to make sure the banana is ripe so you can get enough moisture from it. I do it for about five to 10 minutes and then wash it with lukewarm water.
"Afterwards, use your face moisturiser."
Abena says she does the peel scrub about four times a week and feels it has improved how her face looks.
She said: "For me, it helps with hyperpigmentation and dark spots. It makes my skin smooth and bright and helps to reduce face rashes."
She posted the trick on her TikTok and the video has been viewed over 750,000 times.
