Shampoo hair and rinse thoroughly.  Massage in orange mix and leave on for about fifteen minutes.  Rinse thoroughly and your ready to style.

Orange Facial

This is excellent for smooth skin, controlling oily skin, clearing up blemishes, and removing wrinkles.  Simply slice an orange into small slices, apply to freshly washed face and relax for thirty minutes.  Rinse off and use your favorite moisturizer.  Add one teaspoon unflavored yogurt for added benefits and a super refreshed feeling.

Wrinkle Ridder

Beat 1 egg white and add:
2 teaspoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
a few drops sweet almond oil or olive oil

Apply mixture to freshly washed face.  Relax for thirty minutes and then rinse with warm water.

A Must Try Super Exfoliator!

1/2 cup coffee grounds from freshly brewed coffee (Allow them to cool) then add:
Olive Oil, about 1/4 cup
Orange Zest from one orange

The caffeine in the coffee is a super stimulator for skin, the olive oil leaves your skin feeling super soft and the orange will brighten up your skin and offer a great astringent.  Just add mixture to a soft wash cloth and massage all over your body in small circular motions.  Rinse thoroughly and moisturize!
