4. Say no to wrinkles
The powerful anti-oxidants in oranges fight off oxygen free radicals that deprive healthy skin cells of oxygen by stealing oxygen molecules from them. These free radicals play a significant role in creating wrinkles in skin and also lead to sagging of cheeks. The significant amount of calcium in orange peels is also very effective for protecting against premature aging of the skin.
5. Tone your Skin
The abundant vitamin c and anti-oxidants in orange peels maintain the oils of the skin-preventing both very oily and dry skin. Applying orange peels on skin helps remove dead cells, dirt and keeps the skin well moisturized and toned.

What might be the best mixer to use your dry facial grains scrubs you ask? I worked out your answer. I have been trying and testing suitable liquids that mix and hold the grains without drying the skin. Castile soap is the best! I use this either as my own lavender Castile facial wash, or as any of the compatible component blends that I create. Wild Earth - Acne - Wild Thyme Lemon Castile. Rose Grains - Lavender Castile. You see, get the combination code? These blend accordingly for even better results, I love how these work. My skin was glowing (I used Sage and Lemon scrub + Castile) and not dry at all, the grains hydrate and gently exfoliate, the Castile prevents the grains from dripping and dropping, it holds them more in place as you massage. I left off my moisturizer for several hours to see if there was dryness, but nothing, my skin stayed hydrated, fresh, and this is rare, my skin drys out like sand paper.
