Benefits of Orange on Skin

This fruit belongs to the citrus family and is best know for its astringent and toning properties. Oranges are a good source of Vitamin C which is known to improve the skin texture and color. They help restoring collagen in our body which is responsible for skin firming and preventing early aging of skin. So, daily serving of citrus fruits helps our body fight aging.
  • After eating orange, instead of throwing away the peels, dry them in sun and grind them. Store the mixture. And, use it as a body scrub.
  • Mix the above made scrub and milk or milk cream and apply on face. It gives an instant glow to your face. And, reduces the dark spots and blemishes on your skin.
  • If you do not want to go through the tedious step of grinding the peels, you can make a refreshing face spray using the peels.
  • If you do not use a face spray, simply pour boiling water on the peels and leave for a day. Next day, filter the liquid and store it in fridge. Apply the liquid on your face using a cotton ball. Let stay till it dries up. Your face will be firm and glowing.
    • You can use this liquid in preparing face masks. Use the liquid in a day or two.
    • You can pour this liquid in your bath water and enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating bath. Your skin will smell fresh all day.
    • Use the liquid as a hair rinse to get shining hair. It also helps in removing dandruff.
  • A very innovative tip: Take the juice of 2 oranges and freeze it in an ice tray. Rub your face with frozen orange juice cubes. It will instantly freshen you up and lift up the tiredness from your face. The juice will give your dull and oily face an instant sheen. And, the chilled ice cubes will close and minimize the size of your pores. This also provides relief to acne prone skin and pimples.

  7. does anyone know how dry should the orange peel be? Should it be crackling? I've noticed that it's easier to grind a crackling dry orange peel but it might not have much minerals left.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. to make the orange peel powder, it should lose the entire moisture in it and should be like a dry autumn leaf. yes, crackling would probably be a right way to describe it. and, no, it doesn't remove the minerals in it. only, don't let the orange peel dry in direct sunlight.

  25. Does anybody know how many days are we supposed to leave the liquid in the fridge

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. just till it gets frozen or if you are talking about how many days can you leave the orange juice without needing to squeeze the fresh one, i would say use it as soon as it is squeezed because the enzymes in the fresh juices disintegrate very fast!
