Banana Beauty !

Did you know that The Body Shop used 250,000 bananas each year for their banana products !!!

So we thought that we would take a closer look at bananas and how they can play a part in our beauty regimen.

It’s a little known fact that Guatamalan ladies often used mashed bananas to help relieve dry skin. So if you can talk yourself into a nice leisurely rest for 20 minutes or so, slice a banana and then simply lay the slices on your face to allow the oils and vitamins to permeate the layers.
