Bananas contain substances called chitinases that are associated with the latex-fruit allergy syndrome. If you have a latex allergy, you may very likely be allergic to bananas as well. Be careful when trying new masks on your face. Stop immediately if you have any reactions such as a rash or an increase in acne. When in doubt seek advice from a dermatologist.
Bananas are surprisingly effective in reducing skin inflammation. The antioxidants and potassium that are contained in the pulp and skin of bananas make them the perfect all-round remedy against persistent acne, dry skin, wrinkles and even warts. The antioxidants present in the banana help in neutralizing the negative effects of free radicals on skin. The high amount of vitamin C in bananas works for deep cleansing the skin and in preventing inflammatory diseases. Skin masks that include bananas moisturize and soothe the skin thanks to their large quantities of magnesium, potassium, zinc, iodine and iron.
