If you love oranges, you know that when you peel an orange it can leave a sticky white residue on your hands, not to mention an oily substance that comes out from the skin. Most people eat oranges because they just taste good, but they toss out the orange peels without knowing they’re throwing out more vitamin C than they’re eating. Orange peels contain more vitamin C than the orange pulp and this is why they are often used in beauty and skin products.
Every 100 grams of orange peels contain 136 milligrams of vitamin C. The white part that we always peel off and throw in the garbage has 70 milligrams to 100 grams. This is vitamin C that could be going into your skin making it glow since it renews worn out skin cells.
Orange Peel Powder
If you have a cheese grater, you can easily grate an orange peel and make orange peel powder. You can also let the orange peel dry and then blend it, but it will be harder than if you do it when it’s fresh.
