Who doesn't like the taste of fresh lemon water, the smell of clean lemon scent and even a fresh squeezed glass of real lemonade? Did you know, fresh lemon also has great benefits (if used carefully), for your skin. The antioxidants in Lemon juice naturally contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that may help reduce skin damage and premature aging. Due to its high pH levels, lemon can decrease oil on the skin and reduce inflammation. help fight Antifungal bacteria, that causes acne and even help with those tough dark spots as a natural skin lightener. Gently wash your face of all impurities first. Then cut 1 lemon in half and gently rub in circles along your cheeks, forehead, chin and any problems areas you have, yes even the backs of your hands. Be very careful NOT to get it in your eyes. Leave on for 10-15 min and rinse with cool water. Of course, if any burning, itching or irritation begin, rinse with cool water immediately.
I would advise talking with your licensed Esthetician prior to using this at home remedy in between your facial treatments, to make sure you skin will not become irritated from the acidic features of the lemon. Of course, if your already my client, you know from me already if your skin is acceptable to this in between appointments. :)
I would love to hear your comments if you have tried the lemon and the results you had.
