Lemon juice can do what!?

Has your face recently been breaking out or are the type that always seem to have something going on with your skin that even after you wash your face your still just so frustrated!?

First of all if your serious about clearing up your skin then getting into a routine of taking care of your skin is the first step. Washing your face every day is important, and a good time to wash your face is in the shower. The hot water will open up your pores so you get the chance to scrub away more dirt. When you get out of the shower then is a good time to splash cold water on your face to close up the pores and prevent any dirt or bacteria from getting in, moisturize and continue with your daily routine.

I have some solutions!

This is a wonderful, fast, simple and cheap home remedy that definitely works!! This can help remove any dead skin cells, black heads, sun spots, age spot, wrinkles, dry skin, blemishes, acne, acne scars, self tanner, freckles and basically everything you don't want on your skin..

What you will need for your mini face peel:
  • What you will need:
    Lemons or Lemon Juice
    Granulated (preferable organic) Sugar, or Brown Sugar.
    Cotton balls or Cotton rounds
  • What to do:
    Wet face with warm water to open your pores
    Soak the cotton ball with the Lemon Juice and sprinkle the sugar on top
    Scrub & buff your face clean!!
    (If it stings or bothers you skin, dilute the Lemon juice with water)
The reason that lemon juice can be so beneficial to your skin is that it contains AHA's (Alpha hydroxy acid) in it. Which is why skin care products that contain AHA's are so popular and can also be so expensive. So why not make your own and save some money?

This can even work if you've had a self tanner gone wrong, you can use this remedy to exfoliate all over your body. Lemon juice can react to sunlight so you should know that while your are exfoliating your skin, it will absorb all that it needs so be sure that when you are done you thoroughly wash the excess lemon off of your skin.    

Speaking of how wonderful Lemon juice is, and it's reaction in sunlight, did you know that Lemon Juice can actually lighten your hair!? It's true! When mixed with UV rays, it speeds up the process of having natural skin kissed hair. It doesn't matter if you have light, medium or dark hair, the lemons will work differently on both types just make sure you use 100% natural lemons. 
If you have light hair, try mixing lemon juice with chamomile flowers, and maybe some honey. This mixture may darken very pale blondes or lighten your hair if you are more of a dirty blonde or have darker hair.
If your looking for a more red highlights, mixing lemon juice with henna will give off an amazing red huge.
Just be careful doing this too much because the lemons can dry out your hair.

If life gives you lemons..
