Rejuvenating Bath Booster
Everyone knows that luxurious bath products don’t come cheap. If you want to enjoy a rejuvenating bath without ending up with an enormous hole in your pocket, allow some orange peels to dry under the sun. Once all dried out, grind them with the help of your food processor. Sprinkle some of them in your bathwater to enjoy a revitalizing bath.
Deep Hair Conditioner
Ground dried orange peels may also be used for deep conditioning you tresses. In addition, they also have anti-dandruff properties, thus allowing you to enjoy scalp that’s free of itch and white flakes. Combine some of the powdered peels and water at night. The next day, massage on the scalp and hair to get rid of dandruff while providing deep conditioning.
Dead Skin Cell Remover
You may use ground dried orange peels to make your complexion radiantly healthy. All you need to do is combine some of your powdered orange peels with granulated sugar and olive oil. Gently massage the mixture on your face using circular motions to remove those dead skin cells. Wash off a mild facial cleanser and water afterwards.
Gentle Skin Whitener
Do you end up with irritated skin after using some of today’s skin whitening products? You may enjoy lighter skin tone minus the unfavorable side effects with the help of ground dried orange peel. Simply combine some of it with a pinch of turmeric powder and a tablespoon of honey. Apply on your face and wash off thoroughly after 30 minutes.
Boil orange peels in water and transfer the solution in a small bottle once already cool. You may apply it on your t-zone with a cotton ball to eliminate the shine effectively. It’s a wonderful idea to keep this bottle in the ref to cool the solution inside. Applying it not only helps zap excess oils but also shrink those unsightly large skin pores.
Bad Hangover Eliminator
It’s hard to look phenomenal if you are suffering from a terrible hangover. You can get rid of the annoying problem simply by boiling orange peel and a dash of salt in water for about 20 minutes. Allow this to cool for a bit and sip slowly. This is certainly better than drinking coffee that leaves you dehydrated and makes your hangover worse.
Mosquito Bite Inhibitor
There’s nothing flattering about skin dotted with mosquito bite marks. Aside from making you look horrible, the bite of a mosquito can even put your health in danger. An all-natural way to keep mosquito bites at bay is by rubbing orange peel on exposed skin. As a reward, you get to end up with a citrus-y smell that can really delight the senses.
