Orange peel is citrus and therefore a natural astringent for cleansing and toning. Because it is citrus it is very good for those prone to oily skin or enlarged pores as it helps to unclog pores reducing sebum production thereby helping to eliminate acne, pimples and blackheads.
Orange peel removes dead skin cells and helps to fight against skin blemishes. Orange peel powder may lighten skin tone with frequent use and its Vitamin C content helps to fight premature aging of the skin by restoring collagen.
Orange peel powder is not easy to apply directly on skin on its own as it needs an emollient to bind it and make it more pliable. Therefore, it is best combined with Multani Mitti and Rose Petal Powder for an excellent pore cleansing mask or can be mixed into yoghurt which is useful for removing blackheads.
What skin type?
Suitable to all skin types but particularly great for oily skin. Avoid if you have really dry skin. Instructions for use:
- Combine Orange Peel Powder with Multani Mitti (about ¼ tsp of each as it goes a long way), mix with water and apply to cleansed (but damp) face. Leave on for at least 30 mins. Orange peel is citrus so may sting for a few seconds on application. Wet face first and then wash off gently with warm water.
