4 Orange Peel Powder Masks for an Instant Glow

Orange, is one of the most beneficial fruits, not only when it’s a part of your diet, but also when you use it on your skin directly. In fact the peel of orange is more beneficial for your skin, than its pulp.  The Vitamin C and antioxidants present in orange peel help rejuvenate your skin, and make it smoother and healthier. And the presence of citric acid aids in exfoliation and brightening of the skin.

 

So while you gulp on the pulp this season, save all the peels and use them to make your skin glow.

 

Prepare the Orange peels for use:

Cut orange peels into slices and dry them under the sun for 3-4 days. When the peels are completely dry, crush them into powder in a blender. Store the powder in a jar and use it whenever needed.
