Make ‘lemonade’ for your skin! What I am REALLY saying is that you can really turn anything around and make it good. You can even use this ol’ cliche – literally – by using a lemon for the benefit of your skin!
Did you know that the Lemon, “Citrus limon,” has a reputation for lightening skin, fading age spots, removing excess oil, tightening pores and removing redness from blemishes on the face? The active ingredient in lemons is citric acid. When we use the vitamin C as topical use, a key ingredient in lemons, it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Here are some tips on how to use lemon juice for your skin:
For acne: Extract juice of one lemon and mix with equal quantity of rose water. Apply this mixture on the face and let it stay for about half an hour. Wash the face with fresh water. About 15 days application helps cure acne, pimples and reduces blemishes and scars.
For Wrinkles and Dark Spots: If you apply a little bit of lemon juice to your face, approximately 2 to 3 times a day, it is highly effective at fading away both skin blemishes as well as wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging, such as dark circles. You can purchase a lemon and just squeeze a bit of juice onto your hands, and then apply it to your face (or neck) by rubbing it in gently.
Inner Beauty Thoughts: It’s all about choice, courage and empowerment! When life gives you lemons, make lemonade… yep! even for your skin.
