Orange Peel (Citrus sinensis)

 Orange peel has various uses and benefits and is widely used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

Orange peel has beneficial antioxidants that help in preventing your skin from premature aging and wrinkling. Orange peel face mask helps in providing a natural glow and radiance on your skin.  Orange peel absorbs the oils from the open pores in your skin, thereby helping reduce the greasy shine that results on the face due to excess oil. It also helps to pick up dead and dry skin cells from the surface, making the face look brighter and cleaner.

Orange peel is also beneficial for your overall health as it helps in lowering your cholesterol levels and in digestion related problems

Orange peel extract could fight skin cancer

Perillyl alcohol (PEOH), found naturally in mint and citrus fruits and also used as a food additive, is a powerful inhibitor of both UVB-induced non-melanoma and melanoma, reported researchers this week.

The compound has already been shown to inhibit the growth of many cancers and pre-cancerous lesions either by helping to fight cancer-causing chemicals or by interfering with signals that cause rapid cell division.

Speaking at the Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research meeting in the US this week, Dr Janine Einspahr from the Arizona Cancer Center in Tucson, said: "Our research has documented that perillyl alcohol is a potent in vivo inhibitor of both UVB-induced non-melanoma and melanoma in a transgenic animal model."
