Oranges are much more powerful than you thought. You usually only eat your oranges, right? Well the peel is just as good too! This is what I found out.
We already know that they are rich in Vitamin C. This means that they help boost your immune system which is why we have products such as Emergen C flying off the shelves when people get sick. They also are filled with antioxidants, and flavinoids. The flavinoid in oranges is called hesperidin. There are also studies that say oranges are great for your eyesight!
They are great for acne because of the high amount of Vitamin C and its acidity. Rub the peel on freshly cleansed skin. Then use the juice from the orange and rub it on any areas that are breaking out. This works for both dry and oily skin.
If blackheads are your issue then you need to try using the ground up orange peel with yogurt. Mix the two together and place the mixture on your blackheads for about five minutes. Rinse your face when you are done. This week I will try this out because I recently bought a huge tub of Greek Yogurt to use as a facial cleanser. It wouldn’t hurt to add some yummy oranges to the mix.
Try out these two ideas and check out the articles below I used for reference. They have a ton more more information about oranges that you might find useful.
