Beneficial Fruit Peels

 With summer around the corner, it’s time we gear up to keep our bodies hydrated through different ways. Water being the primary source of keeping ourselves cool during summers, there are more ways to survive the summer heat!

Fruits are beneficial to the body but there are more uses to them than just eating or drinking their juice. We bring you some ‘did you know’ facts about a few fruits:

Orange

On a summer day, one citrus fruit that can keep you fresh is an orange. May it be eating the fruit whole or drinking its juice, it definitely puts some life in our body.

Did you know?

  •         Orange peel (dried) powder can be used as a rejuvenating body scrub.
  •         Make a paste of orange powder and apply it on your scalp to bring a shine to your hair!
  •         Drop a few fresh orange peels in your bathing water to have a reviving experience. You can use the peels as a scrubber, if you’re taking a shower.

Lemon

There is nothing as refreshing as a lemonade on a scorching summer day. While the juice quenches our thirst, the peel can be used to quench our thirst for beauty.

Did you know?

  •         Dropping fresh lemon peels in your bathing water will infuse a fresh lemony aroma. You can use those peels as a scrubber if you’re taking a shower.
  •         Scrub lemon peels on your elbow to keep them white!

Banana

Although a very common fruit, we tend to overlook its exoticness towards our body.

Did you know?

  •         The inside of banana peel (the white side) helps condition your skin when rubbed on face.
  •         The white side of banana peel, when rubbed over acne, helps reduce them.
  •         Sprinkle some sugar on the white side of the banana skin and use it as an exfoliating agent!

Watermelon

A soothing fruit that goes down well anytime during the hot season, watermelon is one of the best ways to keep yourself hydrated during summer.

Did you know?

  •         The inside of watermelon peel can be applied on face to get that refreshing feeling. The cool nature of the skin will help you get rid of the exhaustion.

The next time you help yourself with these fruits, don’t forget to bask in the glory of their peels as well!

Happy Summer!
