Avoid the flaky skin issues this winter and flaunt your glowing skin with this homemade banana face pack, writes Gayathri Das.
Take a half-peeled banana and cut it into small pieces and blend. Add 1 teaspoon of milk powder or 2 or 3 teaspoons of raw milk to the banana paste. Add 1 teaspoon of curd and 1 teaspoon honey to the above. Mix these ingredients well and apply this on a clean face with a brush or cotton. Keep it for 30 minutes and wash it off with cold water.
This banana face pack controls dryness and works as a wonderful anti-ageing option and even controls acne. The potassium content in banana hydrates the skin making it soft and light. The lactic acid in the milk powder lightens and smoothens the skin.
The alpha hydroxy acid removes the dead cell from the skin. Yogurt helps tighten skin pores. The antioxidants in honey helps repair the damaged skin.
