Use Orange peel to bring a glow on your skin


Today, I would be sharing with you a simple scrubbing method for your face without getting into the trouble of elaborate recipe making techniques. Yes, just as I talked about Banana peel last time, this time I am going to talk about how to use orange peel.

Eat your orange. Now, rub the peel directly on your face or anywhere else. Make sure you dig into the skin of the orange peel with your nails to extract its juice and apply it to your face. Keep on rubbing till the skin color of the peel changes into black. Do not wash your face immediately. Wait for 15-30 minutes. Then, wash off your face with cold water. Do not use any cleanser or soap after this application. Your skin will glow and be squeaky clean. And, this also ensures reduction in blemishes and dark spots. But, remember to do this at night as the citric acid makes the skin photosensitive and dry.

A tip: Dip the orange peels in raw milk for 1 hour before scrubbing. This would balance the drying effect of the orange peel with the moisturizing effect of milk.

  7. Hi...the above matter says dat 'we have to dig the skin of orange peel to extract juice n den we hv to apply it 2 our skin'..y should we do dis..is der any effect if apply it directly

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Naveen digging into the orange peels would release the essence of the peels which is extremely effective so dig into the skin and then apply it on the face!!!

  9. Hi I was wondering how often can you clean your face with the orange peel? Can I do it everyday or should I do it once a week?

    ReplyDelete
  10. hey...orange peels are very soft and mild so you can use it once a week for dry skin and twice a week for oily or combination skin!!!

    1. swati, dont u think the orange peels are too much drying? especially if u dont use a moisturiser or ur regular beauty routine?

      Delete
    2. no they are not exactly too drying but even if they are depending on skin type, I have only advised it anyway for one and two times a week for dry and oily skins respectively!!! so, its not exactly a daily routine either.
      and, whatever one follows or does not follow, moisturizing is imp and should never be skipped so these are extra treatments but basic treatments have to be followed religiously. in fact, I am gonna put up a post on moisturizing next week itself.
      would love to know your views :)

    3. @swati after applying it wld the skin turn from tan(dark) to fair,and if yes then (fot oily skin) how many days shld we aaply it

  11. I tried to rub the whiten side
    (inner side) of the peel,but it's dry, the juice come from outer side not from inner

    ReplyDelete
  12. hi Mehrun...yes the peel seems really dry but when you rub with it, you will feel the juice coming out of it and it wouldn't be as if it will be really wet or something but its more like you can feel the essence and digging into the peel helps release the essence better. But, if you find the juice comes from the other side, that's equally possible but I have no idea coz I never tried rubbing it on the other side. Will definitely try it :) thanks for the tip!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. i had powdered the dry peels( dried in sunlight for many days) in mixer and i apply it daily by mixing in water..i keep it for 15-20 min and then rinse it off with cold water! it gives super shine and glowing skin! removes pus from pimples too! very effective! :)

    1. hey Prerna...oh wow didn't know that it can remove the pus also from the pimples so I think it would be pretty effective on acne cysts too...should remember for future reference :)

  14. I grated the orange peel in mixer and put it in ice tray, and pore little amount of water into it and freeze that, and when ever i need that i take 1 cube and rub on my face. I want to ask is this a right way to apply orange peel?

    Also, i have oily to normal skin can i apply it daily or lesser.

    Please reply

    Replies
    1. hi...you can use air dry the peels until they are entirely dry and then powder them and keep them and use them as face packs whenever you want. I don't know how much of the essence of orange peels go into the water you pour over it as you freeze it immediately. It takes a warm temperature to absorb the essences. And, you can apply a face mask of orange peels every alternate day, preferably at nights as they make skin photosensitive.

  16. Hey, i make a juice of the raw orange peel and apply on my face .. I get an instant glow after doing it .. I've been doing it only for a week actually .. Do you think it will be effective to reduce my dark spots on my face? Or is it important to add some other ingredient with the orange peel juice? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hey, that's a great idea. Can you do a post on that??? I would love to know how the juice comes out and everything. Yes, it will be definitely effective but don't apply it in the morning. do this at night always. you can mix either tomato or potato juices along as they are good at removing spots.

  17. Will direct application of orange peel juice help reducing the dark spots?

  18. we should rub the orange peel from inner side(whiten side) or the outer side????????

    5. 1) Coconut oil and Walnut powder make good exfoliators for dark skin patches. ....
      Another great remedy which surely works is milk cream. Mix 2) milk cream with a pinch of turmeric and apply on the affected areas.......
      these both i got for my problem but i dont understand ,cocount oil simple we should apply?? and after apply we should wash off or not?? and how often we should apply and 2nd 1 i dont understand milk cream ?? and 2nd 1 how often we should apply plzzz i will b very gald to knw??

      Delete
    6. walnut powder is too harsh for skin and not recommended at all. coconut oil is used as a body lotion after you have bath on clean skin so applying 2-3 drops per area would be enough and you need not wash it off. you can apply it as many times as you want. milk cream is the surface on the milk which gets formed when the milk is allowed to stand undisturbed for long time. you can use milk instead of milk cream as well. you can apply it everytime before you wash your face.

  34. Hi Swati,

    I recently came across you blog and found it interesting. what’s most interesting is you patience in answering all of our questions. I too have one for you in regards to my skin problem and truly expect your suggesting on it. I am unable to identify my skin type coze at times it too oily and at time is so dry that if I don’t apply a moisturizing cream then i end up with dry skin irruption and later my face becomes black. How safe is it to apply Orange peel, also can i get an orange peel powder in the market, it so can you please suggest the brand that I should use or go with. Thanks Preethi

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thanks a lot for your kind words, Preethi :)
      probably your skin is combination and depending on the humidity levels, it goes to oily to dry coz same happens to me :)
      ok, may be you could try out lotus whitening emulsion...that's something which is suiting me since i have started using it and the only moisturizer which i have liked till date!!
      also, i would suggest you to make your own orange peel powder because generally the ones in the market are adulterated but if you can't then there is this brand called dr. jain which is not exactly available everywhere but you can give it a try!!!
      or, go to any ayurvedic shop, you can get all these :) they are more or less reliable!!! hope this helps :)

    1. when you have the peel, it might look dry but it has a lot of extract of orange in it so when you scratch or fiddle with the peel, you will find a lot of that extract coming out. so, in the inner side of the peel which is white, you can make holes using a fork or your nails...that will release a lot of the extract...i hope i was clear :)

  64. ive rubbed the zest of an orange to my face, an ive fell that my skin has not oiled for hours. thou for the first, it feels a bit minty but after a minute or two. it feels really great and my skin stayed smooth. all you have to do is to grate the outside portion of the orange skin to get the zest and rub through out your face. trust me, it really feels great and you'll have a smooth skin through out the day :)

    Hey Swati, this is the first time Im visiting your blog. Congrats for the success and I appreciate your good work :)
    I'd love to share something very important with u and with all the visitors on your blog. You r right when u said we dont have organic oranges available in India But there is a way to remove the pesticides from oranges or any fruit or vegetable we eat. Take oranges in a big bowl or bucket, pour white vinegar, add some baking powder to it and table salt. mix it in water and leave for 10-15 mins. Before throwing water, rub the oranges nicely with your hand. Now rinse with fresh water 2-3 times and your oranges are free of pesticides. To make your "anti-pesticide liquid" more powerful, u can add some lemon juice. This is the best home made method based on my research to remove pesticide.
    Stay healthy and beautiful :)

    1. you can use the peel mask every night after cleansing your face. also, to prevent excess oil, apply aloevera gel at night instead of any moisturizer. it will gradually improve the oiliness. and, for face and neck, check this post:

    1. hey Shruthi....thanks for your kind words :)
      yes, mix it with chickpea powder or moon bean powder and almond powder. don't mix it with oil, apply the oil separately but remember that olive is a little heavy so you might end up feeling greasy! hope this helps :)

    1. yes, its absolutely fine because the peel doesn't have any juice. it just feels a little wet and then dries off pretty quickly. yes, you can rub the orange juice on your face. it helps lighten the skin spots and blemishes and removes tan. you can check out the benefits here:
