Lemons: A Fresh Ingredient For Your Beauty Needs

Citrus has always been a favorite of mine - from incorporating it into my juices, teas, foods, and all-around every day life, I have come to love it's taste and scent. Many people recognize it as a beneficial beauty ingredient, but most don't realize its full potential. Which is why I want to share some of its multifunctional benefits with you today! Are you ready for it?

Much Ado About Lemons

As most of you are aware, lemons are a highly acidic fruit that are no stranger to California soil . They are a fabulous source of vitamins C & B, both of which are amazing for your skin. And of course, they work in so many different ways to enhance your beauty, naturally!

For Your Skin - Lemon juice has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which makes it fabulous for cleansing the skin and treating acne. It is also well known for its ability to lighten skin, which means helping fade scars and dark spots for more even skin tone! Could it possibly do more? Yes! Lemon juice is also known for exfoliating your skin, as the acid works as a gentle "peel". I have indulged in both lemon-based products and fun DIY remedies found via Pinterest. I love love love everything lemon-based for my skin. It is an especially nice touch in the Spring/Summer since the uplifting scent matches the weather.

For Your Lips - As I mentioned before, lemon is a fabulous (but gentle) exfoliant. These benefits also apply to your lips, and creates a cheap/easy way to keep them fresh and young. Simply massage a lemon wedge over your lips before bedtime and rinse your lips during your cleansing routine in the AM. This natural remedy will help to remove dead skin cells: meaning softer, smoother lips. This method also allows for better product absorption, so it is a win-win!

For Your Hair - It is said that lemon juice can help to create fuller, healthier, happier hair. I have tested this out with a variety of home remedies , and I must say I have been impressed with the results. Lemon juice is also known to help fight dandruff, which is fantastic!

For Your Nails - Lemon juice is a fabulous way to soften cuticles. From rubbing a slice across your nails to enjoy a water/lemon juice combo soak, this is a fabulous way to soften up your cuticles naturally, in the comfort of your own home!

When All Else Fails - Lemon juice adds a delicious, refreshing, healthy kick to your favorite beverages . Simply add a squeeze and enjoy! It has been know to help alkalize the body, improve breath, and much more.

Some of my favorite lemon-infused delights include: June Jacobs Fresh Squeezed Lemon Cleanser, June Jacobs Lemon Sugar Body Polish, iLike Organic Skin Care Apple & Lemon Gel Mask, and Eminence Organics Lemon Cleanser.
