The easiest at home beauty tips for brighter skin? Orange juice!
Yes, this is the strangest beauty hack I've ever used.
However, oranges (with all that natural vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids) really help perk up dull, dehydrate skin and smooth uneven skin tone and discoloration.
Besides being an exceptional anti-oxidant, vitamin C can also help build collagen, and lighten and brighten your complexion.
Because it's so important for healthy, youthful looking skin, I like to use a potent freshly mixed vitamin C serum as an age and sun spot treatment.
This L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) serum can be mixed with any of your favorite moisturizers or anti-oxidant creams. It's best to use this at night or if used during the day, make sure and use a sunscreen.
In between expensive store-bought beauty treatments, you can use natural ingredients like orange juice for a brighter complexion.
The easiest way to get an orange juice facial is to:
Orange juice contains citric acid, so if you have sensitive or dry skin, consider mixing a drop or two of your favorite face oil before applying it.
Another option - if you have oranges on hand - is to squeeze the orange onto a cotton ball or facial pads and run that all over your face.
Too lazy to find the cotton balls? Try what I do — just cut a fresh orange in half and rub it all over your face, neck, and chest.
Moisturize and Massage Your Face and Neck
After you've rinsed off the juice, on clean, slight damp skin, apply your favorite anti-aging cream or moisturizer. A peptide or omega-3 rich cream is a good idea here….since your skin is ready to absorb all its powers.
Take this time to give your face a good collagen building massage. Skin massage cannot be overlooked!
It’s a great way to increase circulation and bring much need oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the skin cells.
Prepare: Always start with a clean face. Examine your skin. Does it have any issues? If it's irritated, wait until it's calmed down before applying any home remedy.
Test: Start with a small dollop of the facial mixture. Apply to a small area on the jawline. Make sure you're not allergic to any ingredients. Also, it's best to avoid the eye area since this area is very sensitive.
And speaking of the eyes, while you’re waiting for your facial to do its magic, consider placing some cold tea bags, or cucumber slices on top of your eyes while you sit back and relax.
Finish: Take a warm washcloth and gently massage the concoction off of your face and chin. Make sure to firmly massage the cloth all over the face for more exfoliation action. Then moisturize well.
So, if you're looking for a budget friendly quick facial pickup, try orange juice. It can do wonders for your skin too!
Loaded with vitamin C, it helps brighten your complexion and even out tone.
But here's the cool part: it's got natural exfoliators called alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). These little wonders gently buff away dead skin cells, leaving your skin smoother and glowier.
Just remember to do a small test first to make sure your skin loves it as much as you do. 🍊✨
