5 Beauty Secrets Of Lemon Juice For Your Skin
Let's get straight to the point: whether lemon juice is good for the skin depends on how it is used. It is a myth (and even very bad) to apply lemon juice directly to the skin. But on the other hand, it is a fact that drinking lemon juice has many benefits. We don't want to keep these benefits to ourselves, that's why we share them with you in this blog.
BENEFITS OF LEMON JUICE ON YOUR SKIN
According to science , using lemon juice has benefits on your skin. This powerful remedy purifies and nourishes the skin, take a look.
Lemon juice contains a number of acids that are commonly used in skin care products. These acids accelerate cell renewal and remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating with lemon has an anti-aging effect and gives the skin a natural glow.
Reduces oily skin
Lemon juice is often hailed as the panacea for oily skin. That's because lemon juice is an astringent, meaning it tightens pores and controls excess sebum.
Promotes an even skin tone
Lemon juice is also commonly used to reduce hyperpigmentation. Lemon has this potency due to the exfoliating effect of the citric acids. It helps remove pigmented cells and even out your skin tone.
Stimulates collagen production
The body needs vitamin C to synthesize collagen, the main protein in the skin. The use of vitamin C rich ingredients, such as lemon juice, supports the production of collagen.
You've probably heard of antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent inflammation, sagging and rapid skin aging. Lemon juice is high in vitamin C full of powerful antioxidants.
WHY CAN LEMON JUICE ALSO BE BAD FOR YOUR SKIN?
As mentioned earlier, using pure lemon juice can be harmful to your skin. It makes the skin more sensitive to the sun and damages the top protective layer of your skin. As a result, the skin can burn, irritate and is more susceptible to inflammation. Fortunately, there are also ways to safely add lemon juice to your skincare routine. Lemon juice is safer when diluted with another ingredient. An example of such an ingredient is honey. Where lemon juice exfoliates and dries out, honey provides hydration. This is the perfect combination for a nourishing face mask. If a honey face mask isn't your cup of tea, try yogurt, banana, or aloe vera instead. But remember: never use pure lemon juice on your skin!
