Fruits are good for our skin and hair, but the humble Orange is a phenomenal fruit as it’s full of ingredients that will help you to achieve glowing skin
Eating one orange a day or drinking a delicious tangy glass of fresh squeezed orange juice may aid weight loss, boost your immune system, and produce healthier skin. Oranges are rich in calcium, fibre and vitamin C and are low in calories, so they really are a wonderful start to your day.
How about using orange peel directly on your skin
It’s not important to make oranges part of your diet, but even you can use it directly on your skin. In fact, in the case of oranges, just the peel has way more Vitamin C than the orange itself. Bright, shiny and tangerine, the peel of the orange contains antioxidants and using it regularly in face packs will give you clear and brighter skin in no time.
The peel has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties which make it great for curing acne and oily skin. It also works as a skin lightening agent and can do wonders for marks on the face and pigmentation. Besides its medicinal use, there are more such properties including face packs with orange peel can also be used as face cleansers and leave the skin looking refreshed.
What’s even more interesting is that the astringent and antioxidant properties of the peel stay intact when used to create an elaborate face pack. Moreover, different mixtures of orange skin are suitable for all skin types.
Orange peel is used in a powder form.
You first need to dry the peel under the sun and powder it.
You can store this in an airtight container for the next 6 months and use it to make fresh face packs. Combine it with other base ingredients for fresh, younger looking, clear skin.
