I love lemons! They are an essential part of my daily cuisine and I use them for various house cleaning tasks too. But today I am going to share with you the different ways of using lemon in your beauty regime. Lemon is a very versatile golden colored fruit with excellent properties to enhance your looks. For the beauty therapy I strongly suggest to use only fresh-squeezed lemon juice, not the bottled stuff, which contains anti-oxidizing chemicals that can be harmful to the skin.
But before you try out the lovely, lively lemon beauty tips, I recommend doing a lemon test on your skin. While applying lemon if you feel that your skin is itching, getting irritated or burning, wash your skin immediately. It is possible that you may be allergic to lemon. But if you still want to give a try, dilute the lemon mix with water and do not use lemon directly. And for people whose skin soon gets dry when they use lemon. Try out an addition of honey to lemon juice to avoid dryness when using lemon juice on the skin.
