We all know lemons for its bitter taste, but did you know the little fruit contains a lot sweet properties for the skin. The public is trained by commercials to go and buy the high end products we see at our beauty counters,but what they don’t tell you is all the synthetic properties it contains.
I for one was caught up in the hype looking for something to resolve my skin issues, trying different products from noxema to neutrogena with no good results. I discovered the wonders of the little yellow fruit through a friend of mine. I found it was good for: blackheads, acne , oily skin and number of facial ailments.
Here’s a hip tip to do twice a week. After you wash your face ( your wash of choice) I prefer keihls , washing your face in a circular motion,rinse then pat dry leaving a little moisture in the skin. Take half a lemon and rub it all over your face, you will feel a tingling burning sensation because the lemon is an astringent ; pulling the oil and dirt from the pores. Let it set on your face for 5 to 10 minutes letting the lemon penetrate the skin. Once the skin starts to tighten and the lemon drys rinse your face with warm water. You will find your skin to be smooth and clear. Pat dry and apply moisturizer.
I recommend this twice a week depending on the severity of your condition because the lemon treatment can be harsh on your face if done too much. The best astringent on earth is right in your kitchen refrigerator.
