1 What Is Orange Juice?
First, it must be mentioned here that orange juice – whether it is a concentrate or juice – is a real vitamin C bomb. Assuming a glass of orange juice with 150ml and fruit content of 100%, then in this glass is more than 50% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. In addition to vitamin C is found in orange juice but also vitamin B (folic acid). Folic acid is essential for a healthy pregnancy.
But the juice of tropical fruits provides not only vitamins but also valuable fiber. So in a 150ml glass of juice about 0.28g fiber are included. Incidentally, the US Nutrition Society recommends a daily intake of 0.30 g fiber. So for the general health orange juice is very good.
Of course, orange juice also contains sugar. The average salary is about 10%. With our 150ml glass, it would be 15g of sugar. However, in this case, it should not be forgotten that this is not empty calories. Because every gram of sugar contains important micronutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, and calcium.
So it can be said that orange juice quite uncomplicated and easy to contribute to a healthy diet & good for skin.
2 Benefits Of Orange Juice
We summarized the advantages of the O-juice in 5 points. Its healthy effect on the body is reflected in the fact that the juice has a positive effect on the digestive system and at the same time regulates the blood sugar level. Also, orange juice is a right anti-aging agent and at the same time strengthens the immune system. The last benefit of orange juice is that it can help regulate heartburn. Here are the advantages in detail:
I. Orange Juice Has A Positive Effect On The Entire Digestive System
Meanwhile, there are quite some studies that have demonstrated the positive effect of orange juice on the stomach and the digestive system as a whole. For example, it has been found that by drinking orange juice, between meals, stomach acid can be broken down. Also, stomach ulcers can be alleviated. Also, possibly bad digestion and the onset of flatulence can be counteracted thereby.
Drinking orange juice diluted with water can alleviate digestive problems.
II. Regulation Of Blood Sugar Level
The type 2 diabetes has now developed into a real folk disease. Orange juice is, due to its low sugar content, very good for people who have this type of diabetes. Another advantage is that oranges and oranges also have draining properties.
Furthermore, it is entirely possible that orange juice can regulate a high blood sugar level. Similarly, the enjoyment of orange juice minimizes the risk that any potential complications of diabetes such as blurred vision, various infections or poor wound healing occur.
III. Orange Juice Is An Anti-aging Agent
In modern times, there is a desire to preserve the youthful appearance as long as possible. Countless cosmetic products are used and who can afford it also likes to help the plastic surgeon. A much cheaper anti-aging agent is the orange juice. This contains a lot of antioxidants and is, therefore, an effective remedy for free radicals. So if you want to maintain a youthful appearance as long as possible, you should regularly take orange juice.
IV. Orange Juice Strengthens The Immune System
It has already been mentioned earlier in the article that the content of vitamin C in orange juice is very high. If you drink a full glass of orange juice daily, you will feel much more vital and fit, even in the cold season.
Because the contained vitamin C strengthens the immune system, thus, the typical diseases that occur in autumn and winter, such as cold, cough or flu can be avoided. Also, it has now been scientifically proving that the daily consumption of orange juice significantly shortens the duration of such a disease.
V. Orange Juice Can Regulate Heartburn
It has already been mentioned that orange juice can positively influence the digestive system. Those who suffer from heartburn more often should drink orange juice during the meal – as a scientific study recommends. Because the subjects had taken the orange juice, no heartburn occurred even in hard-to-digest meals that were very greasy or high in carbohydrates.
The enjoyment of orange juice brings once a flat rate with no problems. At least when consumed in moderation. Some people can tell an allergic reaction to orange juice or who experience a migraine after drinking orange juice.
For some people, the quality of the fruit juice also plays a role. The freshly squeezed orange juice is time better than juice is obtained from concentrate.
3 What Makes A Successful Exfoliation?
It should moisturize, refresh the skin and the peeling granules should be large enough to fight the dry winter skin, but not so big that they damage the already sensitive skin.
In my orange-coconut peeling, the coconut oil provides the moisture kick that is even noticeable even after the shower and makes a body lotion obsolete. Coconut oil supplies not only effective care but also moisture.
Also, it has an anti-inflammatory effect and therefore also prevents impurities. It is a non-irritating care product, which should not only be found in every kitchen but also the own beauty cupboard.
Incidentally, Coconut Oil Is Also Perfect For Hair Masks And Make-up Removal!
Freshly squeezed orange juice is also an important part of my scrub. Thanks to the fresh orange scent, you feel refreshed in the shower, and the skin is happy about the vitamins. As exfoliating grains, I chose brown cane sugar and abraded orange peel. The scrub dead skin cells, but are still not too hard.
And so you can imitate the orange-coconut peeling in a few minutes for you, or as the best gift for a friend, your mother or sister:
⇒ 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
⇒ 2 Tbsp Brown Cane Sugar
⇒ Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice From Two Oranges
⇒ 2 Tbsp Grated Orange Peel
After you have heated the coconut oil in a pot, you can mix the melted oil with the above ingredients and pour into a container of your choice before it becomes solid again. For the mass to set faster, I would put the scrub in the refrigerator for a while.
Below and in the middle, the sugar-coconut mass will settle, while the fresh orange juice will form the upper layer. In the shower, you can easily mix the two phases and use them as a refreshing and nourishing exfoliation.
Since the scrub does not contain any preservatives and the oranges just fresh ingredients, I recommend you not to make too much amount of peeling and use the self-applied beauty product in three to four days. It would be too bad if the scrub would be wrong. Love many small portions one after another, as one big at a time.
My Other Beauty Tips:-
An anti-inflammatory and refreshing face mask can easily be created with a little quark and orange juice. The lactic acid pulls inflammation from your skin (great even with sunburn), and the fresh juice makes your skin rosy and bright.
And if you do not like cold orange juice, but still do not want to give up the vitamins, you should try the following: pour the juice with boiling water, ginger pieces and a little honey – super yummy and good for weakening defenses!
