Hello fellow plebeians! If you’re the kind that likes to use leftover food items that most would usually throw away, then this post is for you!

~Oranges are a lot more than just a delicious fruit! Vitamin C is a must if you want glowing skin, strong nails and hair, and a low insulin level. Healthy weight loss!

But have you ever thought of using the peel?

Save your orange peels and let them dry for a couple of days. Pop them in a blender and you’ve got a fine powder, which won’t just make your kitchen smell like a tropical paradise, but will do wonders for your skin!

If you have dry skin, like Peach, then the perfect concoction for you is Orange peel powder+raw milk. The powder brightens and tightens your skin, giving you a firmer, youthful glow. The milk acts as a moisturizer, leaving your skin feeling baby soft. Peach couldn’t stop touching her face last night, obsessive, you think? 😉

If you have oily skin, like Kuma, then the perfect concoction for you is Orange peel powder+freshly grated cucumber. The orange works the same magic as above, whereas the cucumber removes the excess oil from your face, and gets you that, usually unattainable, freshness!

The final face-masks look good enough to eat, as you can see.

On the left is the Orange peel powder+raw milk mask, which is a little creamier in texture. On the right is the Orange+ freshly grated cucumber mask, which has more of a runny consistency. Use these quick masks as essential exfoliation for your skin!

Tips~ Store the leftover powder in a cool, dry place for future use! Make your own face-mask concoctions using honey, lemon, banana, or even oatmeal. 


~We are sure that by now, the world knows the many benefits of Green tea.

It increases your metabolism, lowers your cholesterol, and is enriched with anti-oxidants. If applied to skin, green tea substantially reduces under-eye puffiness, acts as a toner, and can even be used as a primer for your sun-screen!

The next time you have your daily cup of green tea, tear open the soaked teabag and apply the tea leaves on your under-eye area.

~Have a zen moment and introspect about your purpose in life, while the green tea seeps through your skin and does its job! Your skin will be left feeling refreshed and ready to face the world.

Psst…they’re healthy!
