Packed full of nutrition and easy to eat anytime, bananas are a go-to snack for many of us but what about some other ways to use bananas?

It may be one of the most common and most consumed fruits, but there are some awesome ways to use bananas other than eating them.

1. Put a Shine on Your Face

Bananas can be mashed to create a sticky mask-like consistency, so one of the ideal ways to use bananas is to add them to your beauty regime.

Just like other fruits and vegetables, they’re full of good vitamins to nourish our skin.

Mash them up and carefully smooth over your face, leaving for 10-15 minutes before washing off with warm water – your skin will feel fresh, clean and moisturized.2

2. Conditioning Superstar

Rather than using slippery oils to condition your hair, try some mashed banana gently mixed to a smooth paste with some water until it’s the consistency of double cream.

Comb through dry hair and leave in for 15 minutes or however long is necessary for your hair length and dryness, then rinse out with warm water.

3. Go for Silver with Banana Polish

Sounds sticky and messy?

Another of the things to do with bananas is to use them as a polish to add a fab shine to leather and silver pieces.

Peel the banana and remove all the fruit and stringy parts, and rub the inside of the peel straight onto silver or leather.

Then just wipe over with a cloth or napkin and it will come up a treat.

The properties in the banana will enable a shine to glow from all your favourite bags and shoes and silverware!

4. Binding Your Baking

Vegans need good healthy options for replacing animal products in their cooking.

Most opt for dried egg replacement made of starches, but an all-natural way to use a banana is instead of eggs.

One banana per one egg in the recipe will act as the perfect binder in baking.

You can also use mashed banana as a replacement if you’re cutting down on calories.
