Before you use the orange peels for your beauty treatment remember to dry them under the heat of the sun. Keep them in the sun light for a week. Let the peels dry till the time they can be easily crushed by hand. Make smooth powder from the dry peels to use for your beauty therapy.

Natural Bleach

To bleach your skin naturally you need the powder from two orange peels and a little amount of milk. Make a mix of the orange peel powder and milk thoroughly. Apply this paste on your skin and leave it for 20 to 25 minutes. When your skin is completely dry wash your face with cold water.

Surely our finances can be overcome with taking care of the oranges. Besides for food, oranges can also be used to treat the skin. <a href="">ClickMe</a>
