Do you know how many ways people use a banana peel? None!? In fact, it is always thrown into the trash, at most in the differentiated organic bin.

A banana peel, however, before being disposed of, can be used on many different occasions --- from whitening teeth to fertilizing the soil.

Knowing how beneficial a simple banana peel can be will make you re-evaluate it!

Reduces wrinkles

The nutrients contained in banana peels (vitamin C, E, potassium, zinc, iron, and manganese) help to restrain the development of wrinkles. Here's how you can use it to keep your skin smooth: 

Place the banana peel on the skin area to be treated and leave it for 30 minutes, even better if overnight. 
Rinse the skin and moisturize it. 
Repeat the treatment three times a week.

Fertilize the soil

Decomposing banana peels in the soil means enriching it with calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphates, potassium, and sodium. All of these nutrients are beneficial for plants that need rich soil to grow well. 

Cut the banana peels into small pieces
Spread the pieces near the plants or the place where you are going to plant them. 
Water the plants to let the banana skins settle in the ground.
