Lemons are for more than just lemonade this summer! This super food is high in vitamins and minerals and benefits your body inside and out in too many ways to count! We are giving just a few of the amazing things this fruit is capable of but just know, lemon can be used for almost everything including hair, skin, nails, skin, teeth, etc.
Face Toner – Just mix a few drops of lemon with about 6 ounces of distilled water and use cotton balls to dip into the mixture and apply to your face.
Teeth Whitening – Mix lemon juice with baking soda and apply to your teeth with your toothbrush. Then, scrub as you would normally brushing your teeth and rinse!
Skin Brightening – Skin looking a little dull? Apply some lemon juice for about 3-4 minutes then rinse and wash your face with a mild cleanser. Brighter skin in no time!
Hair Lightener – Just apply lemon juice to the areas of your hair you want lighter before going out into the sun. The exposure will lighten the hair gradually overtime.
Nail Strengthener – Too many gel manicures can make the nail weak. Mix lemon juice with an essential oil like olive oil and soak your nails to make them stronger.
Skin Lightener – You will probably be shaving more often this summer which can cause skin irritation and darkening of affected areas if you’re not careful. Combat this by applying lemon juice.
Breath Freshener – Drink a glass of water with fresh lemon juice for cleaner smelling breath!
Keep in mind that using natural ingredients will not earn you results overnight. Consistent application of these techniques is the only way it works.
