How to use bananas to beat crackly winter feet from Plus Size LIfe.co.ukFollowing on from the last post about how to get flawless skin in 3 steps, I’ve decided to share a new-found beauty secret that I’m in love with!

It’s how to use bananas to treat cracked and dry winter feet and it’s a beauty must-have for anyone who suffers from extra dry skin in winter.

So the relaxing luxury of a spa has gone out the window.
