Lemons are very commonly used in many ways, from simply adding them into water to desserts, but did you know that lemons can also be used in your beauty routines? Here are 7 ways for you to use lemons to enhance your look!
1. Hair lightener
Mix lemon juice with almond or coconut oil, then apply it to your hair before heading out in the sun. The lemon will lighten your hair while the oil will keep it from drying out.
2. Age spots and freckles
Squeeze some lemon juice and apply with a cotton swab to help fade age spots and freckles.
3. Brightening moisturiser
Add a few drops of lemon juice into coconut oil and apply it as a moisturiser. This will help hydrate and brighten your skin to give it that glow you need.
4. Whiten nails
Soak your nails in a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil. While the lemon juice brightens your nails, the olive oil will help strengthen them.
Massage two tablespoons of lemon juice onto your scalp then rinse with water. Repeat as necessary until dandruff resolves.
Diluted lemon juice, a natural astringent, can help fight acne when applied to your face twice a day. Let it sit for 10 minutes each time, then rinse with cool water. Moisturise afterwards.
A combination of lemon juice, sugar, olive oil, and honey makes a nourishing exfoliating scrub for your face and body.
