Is your skin looking dull and lifeless? Are you suffering from acne? Is your skin dry from all those chemical laden cleansers? Do you want a glowing, flawless skin? The single answer to all these questions — Orange peel powder! Did you know that orange peels have more vitamin C than the orange itself? Yes, those orange peels that go straight into your dustbin! The vitamin C and magnesium in these peels reduce free radical damage and give you a healthy, acne free, glowing skin while the calcium and potassium treat dry skin and keep it hydrated.Next time, when you are eating an orange, save those precious peels! Because, today i am going to tell you guys one easy peasy DIY recipe with orange peels to achieve the skin of your dreams!!
I think i am currently going crazy over natural cleansing grains and powders. In my last post, I shared a cleansing powder recipe for acne prone skin. Now, here comes another one! This one is much more simple with lesser and easily available ingredients! It is suitable for all skin types too!
You will need:
- Orange Peel Powder
- Oats Powder
You can always buy orange peel powder from the market, but you can make it at home with very little effort. It just took me 2 minutes to make, so give it a try! All i did was to place orange peels in a plate near the window, whenever i ate an orange. I usually keep two plates — one to keep fresh peels and once they dry for a couple of days, i transfer them to the second plate and let them dry completely for a week or two. Once they are dry enough, blend away the peels! Make sure the blender is super dry and no traces of water in it. If you want to skip this whole thing and purchase the powder directly, check this one out.
Oats is not only a great option for breakfast, but also for cleaning your face. This gentle skin exfoliant absorbs dirt and impurities from the skin, leaving your pores squeaky clean. Making oats powder is much more easier than making orange peel powder. Just add some oats to the blender and blend it away! Same rule here — “NO WATER”!!
Take a look at this pic to see how your powders should look like:
Now, mix both these powders in 1:1 ratio and store it in a glass container. Whenever you want to wash your face, take a little bit in your palms/bowl, mix a few drops of water to make a paste and apply it all over the face. Leave it for 5-10 minutes and wash it off by massaging in circular motions.
You can also use this as a face mask by mixing it with yogurt if you have oily/acne prone skin and milk if you have dry skin.
