A healthy diet is always very crucial when it comes to the health of the skin because our skin will act upon to what we consume. We must therefore be very careful of what we eat, although this advice is ignored by many and so suffer the consequences. Junk food should be avoided at all times.

For years, I saw my grandmother storing orange peels and when I inquired, I was told that it was to make tea which is a good remedy for arthritis. The dried peels are more effective for this condition. The fresh orange peel may be made into a paste and place on acne as a treatment. Today, I find it very hard to throw away orange peel, unless they pile up in abundance.
Orange can be a part of a unique homemade hand lotion. This is done by combining one ounce of orange juice, two drops of orange flower oil, an ounce of warm olive and an ounce of cocoa butter (melted.) This should result into a smooth and soft paste for the skin. Store into an container that is airtight and use on skin as you so desire.
