Skin whitening need not be a daunting task. All you need to do is to look in your pantry and check if you have lemons. Lemon is sour and has always been associated with cocktails and such. If you like your vodka, then you’d definitely like the fact that your tequila or vodka companion is also a great addition to your skincare routine.
Lemon as skin lightener is a great way to add to your daily routine because it can help your skin get all the vitamin C it needs and at the same time gently cleanses your skin. Not to mention that lemon is also very fragrant and will leave your skin smelling fresh and looking vibrant. Its fragrance is also a good way to freshen you up in the morning.
Lemons, first of all, are very cheap. Even if you live in areas wherein lemons are scarce, they’re still cheaper than your TV actress-endorsed skin-lightening products. Lemons contain vitamins A and C and work as a great exfoliator. When applied on a regular basis, the skin becomes lighter without looking fake.
Lemon also heals the face of acne scars and reduces the risk of acne appearing on your skin unannounced. If you have an event or party in the near future wherein you want your skin to do the talking, add lemon to your beauty routine to make sure that your skin will shine the most (and not in a greasy way!)
Lemon is good for any skin type and it is hypoallergenic and will not make your face red, inflamed and plain hideous. Of course, some people have sensitive skin so using lemon for their skin is out of the question.
Lemon as skin lightener is not always as efficient. Or rather, it will take a longer time to work. It is not advised if you’re going out in the sun because it will damage your skin and further enhance your freckles. Lemons are best used in the morning when you’re not going out or during the night right before you sleep. It could be drying though, and it could sting a bit. But if you dilute the juice with water, you should have a product that’s worthy of your skin.
All in All
Lemon is great for the skin but as a side note, it’s also a great cleanser for your home. It can get rid of worst kitchen stains the same way it gets rid of acne; and it’s also an eco-friendly product. When using lemon as skin lightener, not only do you lessen your carbon footprint but you also give your skin all the nutrients it needs without the damage of commercial products that could do a number on your skin. When it comes to lightening, lemon is among your best bets.
