¿Pueden las pieles de plátano aclarar realmente las ojeras debajo de los ojos??

The hack
Using banana peel to relieve that most persistent beauty bugbear: circulos oscuros (o círculos oscuros periorbitarios, si estamos siendo elegantes) debajo de los ojos.

The promise
An old trick revivied on Tik Tok makes an under-eye mask from banana peel.

The test
The causes of dark circles vary – genetics, age, lifestyle and skin type can all play a part. Using a retinol-based product to stimulate plumping collagen can help a little, but I get the allure of the banana skin hack, because it is known to be nutrient-rich – and some retinols can irritate the skin. I take the skin, and scoop out the white fibres inside with a spoon – some users then suggest mixing this with aloe vera gel – before applying it under my eyes for 10 minutos. While I understand that the mildly exfoliating salicylic acid in the banana skin could lighten my dark circles, after a week, and three tries, I can see no difference at all. I try using just the peel itself, cut into strips and placed directly under my eyes. En lugar de, I end up with a “phloem bundle” (a banana string) stuck in my eyelashes.

The verdict
If you have a banana skin handy, Por qué no? But realistically, using a retinol-based eye cream and a concealer such as Monica Blunder’s Beauty Blunder Cover (£45) – and seeing a specialist if you’re concerned – is the way to go.
