In order to treat this deterioration of the skin, we often have recourse to prescriptions from specialist doctors. However, natural remedies can be just as effective without suffering the consequences of drug chemicals, often harmful to our bodies. Among the most effective remedies, we find a lemon.

Lemon, a beauty ally par excellence

We will show you how to use lemon to reduce the discomfort that skin blemishes can cause and thereby improve its appearance and health and restore its radiance. Lemon is known for its amazing benefits on the skin and the health of the human body in general. Its nutrients are essential to bringing vigor and vitality to the human body. Indeed, lemon is a fruit rich in antioxidants, fiber and contains vitamin C which also helps rebuild collagen. The latter is an essential protein for the skin, in fact, it determines the degree of suppleness and tone of the skin. 

Lemon also contains ascorbic acid, a natural astringent, which dries up acne pimples and gradually helps reduce acne marks and spots on the skin. 

How to use lemon to beautify our skin?

We’ll show you 3 easy ways to use lemon to improve the appearance of your skin:

Lemon juice

 

Squeeze a lemon in a bowl and soak a cotton ball in its juice, then rub it only on the acne-affected area without overflowing. Let it dry for a few minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Pat your face with a soft towel. Repeat this once a day for a few days to get better results.

Lemon slices

Cut a lemon into slices and place them on your face then rub your skin with these slices for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Repeat the process twice a week to give your skin a glow. You can also make a mask with lemon juice, rice flour, and honey and smear it on your face once a week. This mixture helps in treating acne and removing dark spots from the skin. 

Lemon and egg white mask

Take an egg white, then whip it. Add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Mix well and divide the mask into 3 parts. Apply 3 consecutive coats on your skin. As soon as the first coat is dry, spread over a second coat, and so on. Once the mask becomes dry, rinse it off with lukewarm water and repeat this once a week to make your skin more beautiful than ever.

Warnings :

Beware of direct sun exposure with lemon! 

Although lemon is a very effective beauty treatment if used correctly, we recommend that it be applied in the evening and not during the day due to its photosensitization. This is because lemon reacts with the sun, and if you apply lemon directly to your face during the day, spots may appear on your skin and have the opposite effect of the desired result.
