To treat acne with a section of a banana peel you’ll want to first wash your face with soap and water to remove any dirt and oil on your skin. You can allow your skin to air dry or gently pat the affected area dry with a soft cloth.
Use a banana peel from a nicely ripened banana. Cut about a once inch square from the peeling and apply gently without scrubbing to any affected area until the peel turns brown. Leave the residue on for a minimum of 30 minutes. If you can try leaving it on for 2 or 3 hours and even overnight.
Gently wash off the residue once you’re ready to remove it and repeat 2 to 3 times per day. If you apply this before bedtime you can leave it on all night.
