Skin Care Natural Peels

Banana Peel:

We all know about the many benefits of banana. But did you know that banana peel is amazing as well? All you need to do is rub the inside of a ripe banana peel on your face for two to three minutes and then wash it off using lukewarm water. It not only moisturizes the skin but also protects it from sun damage, reduces pimples, and helps it glow.

Orange peel:

Keep this peel out in the sun to dry. Next, blend it in the mixture to make a paste. Add honey and yogurt one tablespoon each. Put it on your skin and allow it to dry. It will take around 20 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water. Enjoy a spotless, glowing skin.

Apple peel:

Take apple peel powder (made in the same process as above) and pour in buttermilk to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and neck. Leave it to dry and then wash it off with cold water. Enjoy soft and supple skin.

Pomegranate peel:

Keep it handy if you have acne or dark spots. Make peel powder and store it in a bottle. Take two tablespoons of this powder and add lemon juice and honey (one tablespoon each) to it. Apply it on your face and neck. Use lukewarm water to wash it off.

Lemon peel:

Many beauty recipes use lemon as their essential ingredient. It comes as little surprise that lemon peel too would come with numerous benefits. Just add almond oil, brown sugar, and honey to the lemon peel powder to make a pack that boosts complexion and radiance.
