One Ingredient Wonder: Lemon

Lemons have been used in skin care for thousands of years. They are effective for exfoliation and skin brightening due to their high level of fruit acids, the high Vitamin C and antioxidant properties are useful for neutralizing the effects of our environment and lemons are rich in folate, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B6 making them ideal for detoxifying your skin from the outside in and the inside out.

Here are some simple ways to incorporate lemons into your skin care regimen.

For Brighter Skin
Take half a lemon and rub on freckles, age spots and even knees and elbows to lighten and brighten the skin. You can even add the juice of 4 lemons to your bath for an all over body treatment.

For Acne & Blackheads
Dab lemon juice on affected areas prior to bed. Do not rinse.
