Lemon and lemon juice also play a prominent role in skin care. As it also has antibacterial properties, it can help to clear acne and blackheads. Cleanse your face as usual, then smear a few drops of lemon juice on acne and blackheads. Leave on for a few minutes and then wash off thoroughly with water.
Lemon has a really high vitamin C content, which is why it can be used both externally and internally to boost collagen production, making your skin firm again and reducing deep wrinkles and fine lines. Lemon also helps to fade age spots and pigment spots.
If you have dry lips, lemon juice can help with this too. In winter and summer, you can also fight this problem by applying a few drops of lemon juice to your lips after cleansing in the evening, and then washing them off in the morning.
Lemon juice is also good for your hair. Boil 1-2 litres of water, let it cool to lukewarm and then add the juice of half a lemon. It makes blonde hair vibrant and shiny and even helps to eliminate dandruff on the scalp.
