Lovely Lemons

Sunday, August 18, 2013

I recently wrote a post on green tea and it seemed to go down really well so I though that you guys might like another post this time on the Lovely lemon!
Lemons are a super fruit which have  many health and beauty benefits, here are a few tips on how you can use lemons in your beauty regime to fight common problems we all face.


1. Oily Skin
Lemons are amazing for getting rid of that unwanted oily skin. Using them as you would a toner helps control shine. I love this one!

How To:
-          2 tablespoons vodka (don’t be tempted to drink it, it will be worth it I promise)
-          2 tablespoons of lemon juice
-          1 tablespoon distilled water
-          1 teaspoon of witch hazel

Once mixed together keep in a cool area, preferably the fridge it should last between 5-7 days depending on how many times a day you use it.

2. Flawless Skin
If you’re looking for softer brighter skin, try squeezing fresh lemon juice on your skin to improve it’s softness. It is also said that this will help to reduce acne! Win win ey. Do this three times a week and get flawless skin! But don’t apply it if you are going to be out in the sun as the citric acid will make your skin sensitive to the sun.

3. Bye bye Blackheads
We all struggle with stubborn blackheads. Lemons, help those yucky black heads disappear! Rub fresh lemon juice on those problem areas and rinse with cold water, do this every night before bed. Continue this routine every night until your skin is all cleared up! I will be trying this one out tonight!


4. Fading Age Spots
It is also thought that lemons help fade age spots! Apply lemon juice (every night before bed. Continue this for few weeks and those spots will clean up, and start to get lighter! You could even try adding lemon juice to your bath for an all over body treatment.

So what do you think, will you be trying any of these out?

  2. Wow, this makes me want to run out and buy a lemon right now and just rub it all over my face. I bet it would be soothing if you did it with a cold lemon.
