#8. Stop Your Skin From Itching

If you have a non-serious allergic reaction to mosquito bites or close contact with certain types of plants like poison ivy, putting a banana peel on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes can help you get some relief from the itchiness. The vitamin E, C, and magnesium in the banana peel have antihistamine properties calming down the allergic reaction your skin is having.

After it is a bit closer to the surface it will be easier to take out with a pair of tweezers.
