You will not believe what you can do with a little lemon juice for your beauty. Here are 5 homemade recipes.
1. Acts as a toner and treatment for pimples
Well known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties, lemon juice regulates the excess of sebum and prevents blackheads. Squeeze some lemon slices, soak a cotton pad in the obtained juice and you’ll have the best tonic ever. In areas affected by acne, you can directly apply a slice of lemon. Let it sit for a few minutes.
2. Removes pigmentation spots
If you apply fresh juice on freckles, on pigmentation spots or acne scars, you’ll soon notice an improvement in their appearance. In addition, it’s sufficient to apply a lemon slice on the stain left by the bronzer and it will magically disappear.
3. Heals the wefts
Although some experts recommend overnight packs with lemon slices applied directly to the toes, we suggest not overdoing it and let these wraps act only as long as you watch a movie.
4. Caring elbows
Mix lemon juice with baking soda and you’ll get a scrub that can be applied once a week on the elbows. Rinse and moisturize the area with a nourishing cream.
5. Gives shine to your nails
Mix three tablespoons of olive oil with lemon juice and apply this mixture on your nails. You’ll be amazed about the shine your nails can get!
