ARLINGTON, VA - JUNE 05: Recently laid off worker Lyn Talent receives a free Botox injection during an event called the "The Botox Bailout" where the first 50 recently laid-off workers could exchange their resumes for free Botox injections June 5, 2009 in Arlington, Virginia. The event, which took place in a Reveal store, also featured recruiters to help job seekers network, collect resumes and offer on-site interviews.

It’s bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Sorry I had to. And if you get that reference it might be time for Botox. I’ll be honest it’s crossed my mind. I have several friends a few years older than me who do it or have even done it since their mid-twenties. But the cost and the fact that I am not good with needles have me saying “no way”. So when I came across this Tik Tok life hack, I was intrigued. A Tiktoker @alaynaryan1979 posted a video in which she takes a banana peel and rubs it on her face saying that it will give you the same results at Botox. It has just under 2 million views, 130,000 likes, and 97,000 shares.

And she gets it, she starts off the video by saying it’s really really gross (it kind of is). But that it works. She says she’s been using this technique for years, and in the video, it does appear that she doesn’t have any wrinkles. Though this could easily be attributed to a filter as well. She does not elaborate on how long it takes to see results or how often this process needs to be repeated. But, it’s cheaper and less painful than injecting fillers into your face. And it’s natural. Will you try this banana peel Botox hack? Next time I have a banana peel laying around I may give it a go!
