Lemons can be used in many different ways and for many different purposes due to their extraordinary ingredients. Lemon juice is a natural bleach for skin, therefore, people who wish to fade their age spots or freckles, or simply to achieve an even skin tone or lighten their general complexion, can mix it with some water and use this mixture for cleansing their face or while bathing. Lemon essential oil provides an array of health and aromatherapy benefits. Its distinctively clean, sharp, and citrus scent is revitalizing and uplifting, which makes it one of the most fragrant essential oils. Furthermore, lemons soothe skin inflammations and irritations, and due to their natural enzymes, they are able to tighten skin pores and cleanse the skin perfectly. Thus, instead of spending large sums of money on cosmetics, we advise you to embrace all the benefits that this amazing fruit offers to every one of us.
Face Mask for Dry Skin
If you suffer from dry skin, this mask will help you in the process of restoring it to normal. You will need an egg, some olive oil, and a few drops of lemon juice. Stir the egg yolk together with some olive oil, and then add the lemon juice. Wait at least half an hour, then put the mixture on your face and massage it gently with circular movements until you start feeling warmth on your skin. Finally, rinse the mask off your face with lukewarm water and put some nourishing and hydrating face cream.
Face Mask for Oily Skin
You will need some blue clay, half a lemon, and half an orange. Mix these ingredients together and stir the mixture either by using a wooden spoon, or manually, until it becomes homogenous. Put the mask on your face and cover it with a piece of foil to avoid getting your mask dried very soon. Keep the foil on for 20 minutes and then remove it so that the mask can dry itself. Wait at least half an hour, until the mask dries completely, then, rinse your face first using lukewarm water and then cold water. You needn’t put on a face cream unless you feel your skin tightened up.
