BEAUTY ARSENAL: Zap Zits with Banana Peels

This is the Beauty Arsenal. We’re bringing you beauty tips and tricks every other Tuesday to help you look your best.

Plagued by acne? Zap those zits with banana peels! Here’s how you do it:

– Cut a small piece of banana peel (after you’ve eaten the banana, of course).
– Rub the inside of the banana peel over the affected area for 5 minutes or until the peel’s inside turns brown.
– Clean the skin around the affected spot with lukewarm water but be sure to let the peel work its magic and dry out the zit.
– Repeat at least three times a day.

This idea and the directions come from Kanel Strand. She did a second post showing the day-by-day progression of the treatment.

The other pimple treatment we know involves rubbing a dab of plain toothpaste on a red, sore zit. In a matter of a day or two, it’s dried out, but still a little red if memory serves.
