You naturally use lemons in the kitchen, but did you know that you can also use lemons for these beauty tricks?
Lemons have many health benefits as they are full of vitamins and minerals. You may already be using them to freshen up a glass of water, or perhaps you use lemons when cooking your favorite dishes. But lemons can also be used as a beauty product. A lemon can do miracles from your skin to your hair.
ERASE MARKS ON YOUR FACE
A lemon can help make the scars on your face less visible. All you need is a lemon and a cotton pad. Put some lemon juice on the cotton and wipe the scar a few times. Leave the lemon juice on the wound for a while and then rinse your face with cold water. According to experts, this not only helps reduce and fade scars, but can also aid the skin’s healing process.
CLEANSE THE SKIN
Because lemons contain a lot of vitamins, they have a purifying effect on the skin. Use lemon juice to help blemishes and acne disappear. Rub some lemon juice on the stains, let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse it off with cold water. You will see the difference in a short time and the spots will disappear!
LIGHTEN YOUR HAIR
You don’t have to go to the hairdresser for the highlights in your hair. You can make your own with lemon! Soak some locks of your hair in lemon juice and sunbathe for an hour. Lemon juice makes your hair lighter.
NO MORE DANGER
When you have dandruff or just a dry scalp, lemon can be your savior. Make a mixture of lemon juice, water, olive oil and ginger. Rub this wonderfully scented mixture on your scalp and let your skin absorb the mixture until your scalp is dry. Then, if you wash your hair with a little shampoo, it’ll probably be much less if the dandruff isn’t completely gone.
Have you noticed those dry spots on your feet? Go on! Make yourself a lemon juice foot scrub! Mix some lemon juice with sea salt and rub your feet with it. If you think sea salt is too harsh for your skin, you can always use some dark brown sugar instead. The scrub becomes a little softer with dark brown sugar. This sugary lemon scrub isn’t just great for feet, it’s great on your lips as well.
SKIN, HAIR AND NAILS
Yes, you read that right. Lemon juice can also be great for your nails. Make a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. Soak your fingers in this mixture for fifteen minutes a day for several days. Your nails will become hard from this treatment. You will also find that they take on a more natural color. A real lemon tactic.
