Never Throw Away Banana Peels… Do These Instead

#4 – Treat Bug Bites

banana benefits for skin


From solving a pest infestation problem to soothing an annoying bug bite, the accident-causing banana peel can bring huge benefits if used correctly. In case of a mosquito bite, the insect ejects an anticoagulant agent that prevents the blood from clotting. Due to this, they can suck as much blood as they could before fleeing.

In response to a bite, the body experience itch as a tiny immune system reaction. The polysaccharides from the banana peel provides anti-inflammatory benefits which soothes the itchiness and cools the swelling. Just rub a banana peel to the fresh bug bite and feel the comfort in a short while.
