Orange Peels Benefits
Orange is good for our skin and hair, and it is full of ingredients that will help to boost our complexion! Eating one orange a day or drinking a delicious tangy glass of fresh squeezed orange juice may aid weight loss, boost our immune system, and produce healthier skin.
Oranges are rich in calcium, fibre and vitamin C, and are low in calories, so they really are a wonderful start to our day.
Recently oranges are being recognised for their beauty enhancing qualities, as their natural properties may improve the look and feel of our skin.
ORANGE PEEL has enormous amounts of benefits that help our skin and health.
Surprisingly, orange peels have about four times more health benefits than the actual orange fruit.
Orange peels contain flavonoids and other phytochemicals that are highly beneficial for our health. Flavonoids are antioxidant compounds that help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer and heart diseases. In fact, orange peel has a higher content of Vitamin C than the orange itself. In addition, orange peel contains considerable amounts of copper, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, and dietary fibre.
The orange peel is perfect for creating face masks and body scrubs, drawing out all the impurities and leaving a beautiful healthy glow.
