What’s in season will make your skin glow! Not only when it’s part of your diet, but even when it’s used 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 antibacterial and antimicrobial properties which make it great for treating 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, more obvious properties, 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. Also with different base mixtures along with orange peel it’s best for face remedies for all skin types.
