Lemon Juice Skin Whitening – Lemon Juice Provides Great Beauty Tips

How lemon juice helps in skin whitening & various beauty tips?

It can be fun to turn to old fashioned beauty remedies. Some women have a “spa” day with friends at home just using such tried and true remedies as lemon juice skin whitening tricks, honey and egg white hair shining, or Camellia oil cuticle treatments. It is even more fun when the old fashioned tricks actually work! Lemon juice has been used as a skin whitener for hundreds of years, and can also be used to bleach spots out of linens as well. The Vitamin C[1] in the lemon works to slough off old skin cells and bleach darkened pigmentation.

The rind of the lemon can be used for a lemon juice skin whitening treatment, and is rubbed on the face to help act as an exfoliant and as a lightener. In addition, you can place lemon juice in a spritz bottle with water or Aloe Vera extract, and use this daily to refresh and lighten the skin. The lemon rind makes a great remedy for cuticle treatments and bleaching as well; keep one handy each time you wash your hands, and rub the rind over the cuticles of your nails. Lemon really is one natural beauty product everyone should have on hand.

The lemon is a fabulous way to rejuvenate the skin. Not only does lemon juice skin whitening really work to reduce spots, it also can help remove excess facial oils and prevent acne breakouts[2]. Due to the acidic nature of the lemon, however, it is advised that you apply a good lotion on the skin ten to fifteen minutes after your lemon facial. You can make your own lemon lotion by adding some lemon drops with glycerin or baby oil and get the soothing of a lotion with the cleansing and whitening properties of the lemon all at the same time.

Buttermilk and lemon juice skin whitening is one of the best remedies to clarify and tone the skin. Buttermilk itself will bleach and soften the skin, and removes freckles. Add lemon to the mix and you get the Vitamin C to improve your skin tone as well. Always avoid exposing your skin to the sun whenever you are treating your skin with lemon juice, or if you have just treated the skin within the last few hours. The lemon juice will make your skin more sensitive to light, and you can get sunburned quite badly if you are not careful.
