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.

      When I applied orange peel powder along with curd I felt very buring sensation on my face which I cannot tolerate….what is the reason

      • says

        ummm…probably you might not be using a brand which is suiting you (generally the powders in the market have other ingredients which might not suit), in case you are using the branded orange peel powders. or, it might be because your skin is too sensitive. you can mix the orange peel powder with chickpea flour or multani mitti and then apply.

    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.

    • says

      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.

      hey…yes, do not use orange juice on a kid. i would suggest you to just use handmade soaps and some good lotion to moisturize. their skin is very sensitive. and, don’t forget sunscreen if the kid goes out to play a lot.

    will daily application of orange juice on skin of a child make it dry?After applying it I am using the milk cream.Is it good or bad? Her skin is a dry one.

    • says

      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!

    I mixed orangr peel powder with rose water and scrubbed it for 5 mins. My skin started to burn. Should I continue to use or not.

    • says

      well, i would suggest you to make sure you are not allergic to either of the ingredients. till then do not use and do not scrub. apply ice on the area to cool it down and treat it with aloevera gel!!

    Hi…. I’m getting too much of blackheads… even if I remove…. dey jst keep on coming….. can u tell me anyway to completely remove it or stop it frm coming???

    • says

      hi. blackheads occur due to the oxidation of oil in the pores. this is an ongoing problem and can not be stopped unless you are using non-comedogenic products. so, get a face wash with salicylic acid like garnier pore unclogging face wash. and, use a moisturizer which is not too heavy for your skin. also, exfoliate your skin once in 3 days. is your skin oily?

  18. ayeesha says

    Madam I was applying orange powder with multani mathi mixed from pasr four days now many pimples came on my face what to do plzzzz suggest

    • says

      Hi ayeesha. You should not use multani mitti everyday. It is detoxifying so use it two or three times a week depending on your skin is dry or oily.
