How Lemons Can Improve Your Skin

Updated: 4 days ago

There are many benefits of using lemon on your skin.


Lemons are an antioxidant and naturally contains Vitamin C, citric acid and AHA's. Antioxidants may help reduce skin damage and premature aging. Lemons also have high pH levels and natural astringent and can decrease oil and reduce inflammation. Lemon is also a natural anti-fungal and anti-microbial and can be used as an acne treatment. Because lemon juice can help exfoliate dead skin cells, it also may help alleviate skin patches attributed to psoriasis and dandruff. The natural level of acids in lemon juice may help to slough the skin.


Lemon combined with aloe vera can help heal & fight acne, and smooth fine lines.and kill bacteria.

Recipe:

1/2 fresh lemon

2 inch cutting of a fresh aloe plant or 2T of aloe vera gel

Combine ingredients in a small bowl, using your fingers apply a thin layer to the skin.

Remember to wear a mineral sunscreen when using lemon on the skin.

Leave on for 15-20 minutes or leave on over night for acne prone skin.

Put leftovers in the fridge and use within a few days.
