Participant Beatriz Reis, from the reality show Big Brother Brasil 24, caused a stir on social media by customizing her bikinis with leftover oranges and bananas. However, the show's production team soon warned her about the dangers that fruit peels could pose to the skin.

The Risk of Phytophotodermatitis

CNN, dermatologist and member of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology (SBD), Michele Kreuz, clarifies: “The main danger of fruit peels coming into contact with human skin is the risk of phytophotodermatitis. This intense inflammatory reaction can appear after contact with the peels and then exposure to solar radiation, often appearing within the first 24 hours. “

Citrus fruits, such as lemon, orange and tangerine, are the main villains. They contain furocoumarins or psoralens, substances that increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun. When someone touches these fruits to their skin and is outdoors, exposed to solar radiation, a burn occurs. The skin may experience intense redness, blisters and even severe burns.

Questionable Benefits

But what about banana peels? Dermatologist Ana Carolina Sumam, a specialist at SBD, reassures: “Banana is not a fruit that usually causes phytophotodermatitis.” Therefore, using banana peels does not pose the same risk. In general, fruit peels do not offer significant benefits for the skin.

“Banana peel can even relieve itching, but does this benefit outweigh the risks?” reflects Michele Kreuz. “As a dermatologist, I am against this type of practice. There are more modern and safer alternatives.” If you like customizing clothes with fruit peels, remember the risks. Protect your skin and opt for safer methods. After all, your skin's health is as important as fashion.
