Bananas contain vitamin C and B6 which help maintain the elasticity of your skin. They also contain antioxidants to protect your skin from free radicals which can lead to premature aging.
Cream helps soften the skin and milk products are a great anti inflammatory if you have skin problems. It will also leave the skin looking more radiant.
