Uses of Lemon Juice in Our Skin Care

Uses of Lemon Juice in Our Skin Care:

Hi Friends, Today's my post is all about using Lemon in our skin care routine. 
We all are aware of adding lemon juice in so many of our home made face packs. So, today lets see in little more detail the uses and benefits of Lemon, so that we can use this fantastic ingredient more and more and in a proper way in our skin care regime, to get its maximum benefit.

How Lemon Can Be Used in Our Skin Care:
  • Lemon has anti bacterial and anti fungal properties, which enables lemon to treat acne and acne scars. Applying lemon juice on the acne scars help to fade those scars away.
  • Lemon is a citrus fruit which is rich in vitamin C and other fruity acids, which is very good in improving texture and beauty of skin.
  • Natural acidic acid present in lemon is not harmful for skin and helps to remove dead cells, making skin glow and become softer.
  • Lemon has citrus acids, which also helps in bleaching skin. Regular use of lemon juice helps to lighten complexion since it acts as a bleaching agent.
  •  Lemon juice is also said to remove black heads.
  • Applying lemon juice or rubbing lemon slices on the elbows helps to reduce the darkness of the elbows. Same can be done for dark knees also.
  • Rubbing lemon slices regularly on underarms helps to reduce dark underarms too.
  • Vitamin C in lemon helps to reduce wrinkles.
  • Lemon juice can be used in making your own face packs, scrubs, exfoliate, skin moisturizer,skin toner and what not. 
  • Lemon juice even outs the skin tone.
  • Adding curd to the lemon juice can be a very nice lightening as well as moisturizing mask to try on. 
 Few Important Points:
  • Lemon Juice can be little drying for the dry skin people since it contains citric acid, so always dilute lemon juice with little water or according to the face pack you are making. Do not forget to moisturize your skin nicely after using it. Honey can be added to add hydration to the packs.
  • Sensitive skin people should be careful not to over use it. Since the natural acids present in the lemon juice are quite strong, so never forget to dilute it and do not use it more than 2-3 times a week.
  • Try to avoid sun exposure just after the use of lemon juice. Wait for an hour or so before going out in sun and do not forget to apply your sunscreen nicely.
  • Be careful if you have open cuts or wounds, it can really tingle them bad.
So, friends that was a brief information about lemon juice and its benefits and the precautions which should be take while to use it.

Having all said, we cannot expect a miracle result in one day after all...If we keep using natural products like lemon for our skin care religiously, we will see benefits for sure.
