5 Benefits of Using Lemons On Your Face.


1. Moisturizer with Clarifying Properties 

Lemons have powerful antibacterial capabilities, which makes them ideal for eliminating germs that causes breakouts in the skin. Pour several drops of coconut water and several drops of lemon juice into a small mixing bowl and stir well. Using coconut oil will moisturise your skin, while using lemon will clarify and brighten it. Note: If you have sensitive skin, you should first perform a patch test on your skin. 

2. Elbow and Knee Loosening Agent 

Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is known to be a natural brightening agent. 'If your elbows and knees are looking dark, simply rub them with half of a lemon,' says DaBlot Beauty's Patrice Coleman, who recommends this remedy. "It's as if it were magic!" 

3. Treatment for Blackheads 

Lemons can also aid in the treatment of blackheads, which may seem too good to be true at first. This is due to the fact that they contain citric acid, which is a naturally occurring type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). After cleansing, dab a slice of lemon over your most blackhead-prone areas (usually your T-zone) to allow the AHAs to do their pore-clearing magic and open your pores even further. 

4. Skin Brightener 

Lemons are high in vitamin C and citric acid, which means that when used regularly, they can assist to brighten and lighten your skin. "Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals and increasing collagen formation," explains dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD. "It also has anti-inflammatory properties." As a result, it can aid in the lightening of black spots. Use it in this moisturizer from Fresh to see how it works. 

5. Exfoliant for the Lips 

A little lemon juice and some brown sugar can be combined to make your own homemade lip scrub. Dead skin cells will be loosen and sloughed off by the sugar, which will act as a physical exfoliant in conjunction with the AHA in the lemon juice to provide a chemical exfoliation.
