Oh! Banana has amazing values and does magic for the skin. Even I apply mashed banana once a while and then wash off with milk. My grandma often tells me to mix curd, banana and besan...to make a fine paste and apply it over the skin. I am sure, it will really help. Moisturizing the skin over the winter months is essential if you want soft skin. Other than this, I am currently using Parachute's new body lotion Deep Nourish to take care of my skin.
