Our skin tends to get dark and dull after long hours of sun exposure. Using a sunscreen can protect your skin from the harmful rays but it definitely gets tanned no matter what. There are a lot of anti-tan products available in the market but they contain synthetic and toxic ingredients and seldom work. Below is a recipe for anti-tan scrub that can help restore your natural complexion and also give it a brightened glow:
Orange peel powder- Orange peel powder has concentrated compounds that have skin brightening and anti-tanning properties. It also helps keep skin clean and clear.
Milk- Milk brightens skin, softens it and helps add a brightened and healthy glow. It also has anti-tan properties.
RECIPE FOR ORANGE PEEL SKIN BRIGHTENING SCRUB:
Things you need-
- 2 tablespoons pure orange peel powder
- Enough milk
How to make orange peel powder –
Select good quality organic 3 large or 4 medium sized oranges. Wash and pat dry with a cotton cloth.
Using a sharp knife, peel them. Only try to get the top orange layer, as much as possible. Chop up the peels into thin slices so that they can dry faster. Spread all the peels on a tray and place under the sun to dry.
After the peels are dried, add them to a food processor and grind to a fine powder.
In a bowl, add orange peel powder. Add in milk to form a spreadable paste.
In the bath, scrub the product on face and body. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until dried and use a soap as usual.
Use this once everyday.
