The lemon, the fruit that in addition to highlight the flavor of some dishes and seasoning salads, can heal wounds and we can even occupy it as a beauty product. If we talk fruit benefits we can not fail to mention the properties of lemon for our skin.
Below are 7 reasons why you should add – or include more – lemon in your skincare routine (or your teen’s!):
- Lemon helps eliminate skin spots: Whether rubbing directly or mixing its juice with water, it provides luminosity and helps skin regeneration.
- Lemon softens features of old age: It contains a lot of vitamin C, a beneficial antioxidant to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as it stimulates the production of collagen.
- Lemon is a natural exfoliant: ideal to eliminate blackheads and blackheads, if it is mixed with sugar much better.
- Lemon softens the lips: To eliminate dead cells, before sleeping, rub half a lemon on the lips, let it sit overnight and rinse the next day.
- Lemon reduces spots: Thanks to its contribution of antioxidants and vitamin C, the lemon can act as a true natural bleach for the skin, can eliminate dark spots produced by overexposure to the sun or hormonal changes.
- Lemon eliminates excess oil: A greasy face will never look very good, the places where it accumulates most are the forehead, the chin and around the nose.
- Lemon helps eliminating acne: Those annoying pimples that bother so much can eradicate them by applying lemon juice to the affected area. Thanks to its astringent properties, it cleans the epidermis, removes the fat and regenerates.
It is important to clarify that any you should avoid exposure to the sun when you have placed lemon on your face; since this makes the skin more vulnerable to sunlight, which results in the skin becoming stained. Also, avoid the use of lemon in the area near the eyes, on wounds or rashes.
