Bananas have fruit acids that help remove dead skin cells, so a banana oatmeal masque is the perfect way to go when you want to brighten up your complexion. Bananas are full of beneficial nutrients for skin. They contain vitamin C and antioxidants that are fabulous for softening wrinkles and conditioning skin. Banana peels are a great solution for reducing the inflammation associated with psoriasis and eczema. The dry peel also exfoliates skin removing loose, flaky skin simultaneously nourishing it with antioxidants and minerals. Bananas are effective for use as an acne masque. Bananas are high in potassium which suffocates the bacteria in cells, helping blemishes heal faster. Bananas have anti-bacterial properties also.
Even as long as 4000 years ago people already knew about the skin soothing and other skin care properties of oatmeal. Where to begin? Scottish Oats absorb and remove surface dirt and impurities, they deep cleanse your pores, they scrub and gently exfoliate, and finally hydrate and soften your skin
For many people a simple Scottish oatmeal face masque has also been a natural and effective way to treat many skin conditions, like oily or dry skin, acne, zits, blemishes, sunburn, razor burns, and even chicken pox. It has even been clinically proven to heal dry, itchy skin; and its gentle nature makes oatmeal also perfect for sensitive skin. I use Scottish quality oats because only the Scottish know how to make the real oatmeal.
