toothpaste to remove the residue. Do this once a day for a couple of weeks to
remove the stains. 2. Dissolves Warts Since banana peels can help to fight disease,
they can help your body to get rid of unwanted warts naturally. They can do this because they contain enzymes

your skin the next morning. Do this daily until your skin tag drops off. 7. Diminishes Wrinkles and Fine Lines Banana peels are also great for the skin of
your face, as they help to remove or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They can also help to tighten your skin and
