Skin Care 101: How to clear your skin

Hello! My name is Marieli and as my sister has already pointed out I have a slight obsession with finding different ways to get beautiful skin without spending a lot and using natural ingredients. I have been testing out ideas for about a year and a half now and always just kept this my little secret. Now here I am, sharing what I have learned along the way!  

My first thing I want to share with you guys will give you a quick fix to your skin and it is my go to when it comes to breakouts. Since summer is finally here we can all use a quick fix after those long months with heavy makeup and dry skin. It's time to shed the makeup and let your skin breathe! Don't worry about spending a lot of money on a product because these are tips you can find in your house (or go to your moms house).
First step, go to the kitchen and look for a banana...... Yeah, you read that right. Bananas are rich with amino acids and antioxidants that provide nutrients to your skin and hair.  Bananas are a good source to get rid of acne, dry skin, wrinkles, dry hair/ itchy scalp, and a way to lose those dead cells.

Getting Rid of Acne & Pimples:

Open the banana and just rub the inside of the peel on your face. Leave it for about 20-30 minutes and then rinse off. Do this twice a day.

**If you do not like the smell of bananas, I recommend staying with the banana peel. **

Fixing Your Complexion and Saying Bye to Acne Scars:

1 ripe banana, 1tsp of honey, and 1tsp of lemon juice. Lemon juice helps exfoliate— reducing the appearance of acne scars. Honey hydrates the skin to give you that glow you need. If you want you can do this with just honey and banana. Mix in a bowl and make sure you really mix it well or else you will have chunks of banana falling from your face. Also, make sure you do this over a sink because it does get messy. After placing it on your face, let it sit for 15-20 minutes then clean with cold water and moisturize.

Warning: After doing at least one of these you will never look at banana’s the same and you will wonder why people throw away peels. That’s like throwing away a good cleanser!
