Ingredients:

2 teaspoons orange peel powder

1 teaspoon organic honey

1 teaspoon yogurt

Directions:

Mix all the above ingredients in a small bowl.

Apply a thick coat of the mixture onto your clean face. Let it sit for 15 minutes or until it dries out.

When the time is up, rinse your face gently until all of the mixture is completely gone. Pat dry with a towel.

If your face is dry after this mask, use a drop of coconut or olive oil as a natural moisturizer.

Tips:

1.Make sure to gather your hair away from your face before applying this mask. Put on a headband or plastic shower cap to prevent the mixture from going on your hair.

2.You can add more honey or yogurt to make the mixture a little runny to apply it effectively.

3.Don’t over proportionate the orange peel powder as it may burn your skin.

Check out the benefits of each additional ingredient below:

Oatmeal-Gently exfoliates and scrubs skin clean. Absorbs and eliminates impurities

and dirt from the skin’s surface.

Baking soda-Deep-cleanser for skin.

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons orange peel powder

1 teaspoon oatmeal

1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.

Gradually add water until a thick paste is formed.

Using clean fingertips, massage a thick coat of the mixture onto your face in a gentle circular motion. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Rinse your face with cold water and pat dry with a clean towel. Your skin will feel amazingly soft and look clean and moisturised. If your face is a little dry after the mask, especially in acne areas, simply use a drop of olive oil as a natural moisturizer.

Tips:

1.Make sure you're using baking soda, and not baking powder!

2.Ensure not to smile or talk with the face mask on! This will stretch your skin around the mouth and eyes and actually cause wrinkles to form.

3.If the orange peel powder and oatmeal used together feels a little rough on your skin, add more olive oil but don’t make it too runny as it will create a drippy mess.

Orange Peel Face Mask for Oily, Pimple-Prone Skin

Got very oily and acne-prone skin? Worry no more with this simple and cleansing orange peel face mask, which will leave your skin oil-free and moisturized at the same time! Orange peel is known to absorb excess oil or sebum from oily skin. This face mask also uses coconut oil, which works wonders in driving out the ‘bad’ acne-causing oil from deep within your skin pores.

1 teaspoon milk

1 teaspoon Coconut oil

Directions:

In a small bowl, mix the above ingredients until a thick mixture is formed.

Steam your face to open up your pores.

Apply the mixture onto your face using clean finger tips in a circular motion. Let sit for 15 minutes. In this time, you can take a quick soak in the bath or read a chapter of that book you’ve been meaning to finish. Keep yourself relaxed.

When the time elapses, gently and thoroughly rinse your face and pat it dry with a towel. Your face will have a wonderful glow and feel silky and soft!

Tips:

1.To open up your pores, you can also have a quick splash with warm water as an alternative to steaming.

2.To liquefy your coconut oil, place it in a bowl of hot water and it will melt in a few seconds.

3.It doesn't matter if you use low fat or skim milk instead of full fat milk in this mask.

Why Homemade Face Masks Are Better:

Homemade face masks are filled with nature's restorative goodness, in the form of the nutrients, minerals, acids, and oils explained in the tables above, without any of the chemicals that store-bought masks have to contain for an extended shelf life. Fruits are rich in AHAs and other micro-nutrients that nourish and heal the skin. When expensive skin creams claim to contain 'fruit compounds,' they usually only contain a fraction of the nutrients that are found in the fruit itself. Save yourself the money and the chemical damage and make your own homemade skin products.
