Lemony Lemon!!

Most of us have struggled with our skin at some point, So Idecided to create a series of post that will provide you with great natural skin care alternatives. Most skin care products have like 50 different ingredients and 1 active ingredient. Rather then using skin care products with mystery additives why not make your own? For instance....


Lemons are very beneficial to the skin , and can be use in skin care treatments.Lemon juice, is a natural antiseptic, can assist in curing problems related to skin

*Lemon can be used to brighten and soften you skin, it can be used on your face and any rough skin like your knees and elbows. Just squeeze half a lemon in your bath water and sit in for about 20mins.

*It can also be used as a natural mild skin lightener, getting rid of freckles, agespots, and blemishes. As well as getting rid of blackheads. Take a slice of lemon and rub on the the problem area. For SENSITIVE skin just dilute the lemon juice and apply.

* Lemon Juice also acts as a antiaging remedy, Lemons are loaded with vitamin C which helps our skin cells reduce the effects of free radical which increase aging.

*Lemon juice is great for oily and acne prone skin , the citric acid in lemons breaks down oils and cleanses the skin. The Alpha-hydroxy acid in lemons help exfoliate the skin , this is great because the key to ageless skin is exfoliation in moderation.
 You can create a chemical peel (which removes dead skin) by taking
powered content of an unflavored gelatin packet into a bowl with boiled water and pour just enough water to cover the gelatin, mix until the gelatin dissolves and allow it to cool a bit ( so you won't burn your face) For sensitive skin used boiled milk.
Squeeze lemon juice more or less depending on the severity. Add an egg white (no yolk) Mix and apply , wait 30 mins and remove.

Please remember to apply sunscreen to protect your new clean skin
