5 Homemade Orange Peel Face Packs for Glowing Skin

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 anti-bacterial and anti-microbial 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.

Orange peel is best used in a powder form. And for that you first need to dry the peel under the sun and powder it. You can store this in an air tight 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.

Tart and citrusy, a fresh and pulpy orange can make all the difference to your health. So while you bite into the pulp, use the peel in 5 totally genius ways to get fabulous glowing skin.

1. Orange Peel and Yogurt – Face Pack

Take 1 tbsp of orange peel powder and 2 tbsp of yogurt. Mix well. Apply on face and wash off after 20 minutes to get clear, fresh, and toned up tight looking skin. This is an instant rejuvenating face pack which you can apply before a party or any big event.

2. Orange Peel, Turmeric and Honey – Face Wash

Use this face wash over a period of time to remove stubborn tan. Take 1 tbsp orange peel powder, just a pinch of cosmetic turmeric, and 1 tbsp of natural honey. Mix everything well into a fine paste. Apply on the face and neck, and wash off after 5 to 10 minutes with any gentle face cleanser or rose water. Try not to use this on acne prone skin but if you decide to do so then follow it up with an acne skin face pack.

3. Orange peel powder and walnut powder and sandalwood paste – Exfoliator

Take a tbsp of orange powder and add 1 tbsp of sandalwood powder and a tbsp of walnut powder. Then add 2 to 3 drops of lemon juice and 2 tbsp of rose water to make a paste. Leave on the face for 5 minutes and rinse off to get bright skin which will give instant glow post gentle exfoliation.
