Beauty Trend: All About Oranges


To start your day as energizing as possible, choose beauty products with uplifting scents and powerful ingredients. Oranges are definitely part of a healthy eating plan, with their high amount of vitamin C. The significant antioxidant properties of this fruit are amazing and also used in the beauty industry.

Not so healthy, but extremely yummy is blood orange jelly (see photo above to the left: Blutorangen-Marmelade available in Switzerland at Globus for CHF 5.90). At the moment, my favourite breakfast treat at the weekend…
