You may know that oranges are a great source of Vitamin C in your diet, but did you know that orange peel and orange zest can help your skin? Used in a face mask, orange can help your skin look healthier and more vibrant!
Orange peel powder has a high concentration of Vitamin C, an important ingredient in promoting the production of collagen, which helps with skin elasticity and firmness. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that can help your skin protect from and repair damage from UV exposure. This is especially important for us Floridians!
If you want to try this skincare tip for yourself, you can either purchase orange powder, or you can make it at home! Just cut thin slices of the orange peel, avoiding the white inner portion, and keep them covered until they have dried up. Once they’re dry, you can use a food processor to blend the peels into a fine powder.
