I have another beauty gem right from the kitchen for you: The lemon. This yellow fruit is a true "beauty bomb". It refreshs your skin, whiten your nails and rough skin soft.
1. Freshness in your bath tub
Slice 500 g lemons, souse them with hot water and brew it for 1 hour. After that hour give the brew with the slices into your bath water.
2. For a quick refresh or a soft peeling alternative
Just take a slice of a lemon and rub it over your face. The fruit acid frees your skin from dead cells and helps to refresh and tone it. And a extra bonus: The smell of the lemon has a positive effect on your mood.
3. As a face mask
For dry skin: Mix 2 tbsp lemon juice with 2 tbsp honey to a paste and apply it on your face. Rinse after 15 minutes with warm water.
For oily skin: Mix 2 tbsp lemon juice with 2 tbsp papaya mash and apply it on your face. Rinse after 15 minutes with warm water.
4. A weapon against dandruffs
Rub 1 tbsp lemon juice into your dry hair. Shampoo it as usual. Now apply a mix of 2 cups of water and 2 cups of lemon juice on your wet hair and rinse again. Repeat this every other day for one week.
5. Toning skin cleaner
Beat the white of one large egg and stir in 1,5 tbsp lemon juice. Apply the mixture on your face for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
6. Whiten your nails
Simply rub a slice of lemon over your nails.
7. Lemon hand scrub
Mix 2,5 cups sugar, 1 cup olive oil and 1 tbsp lemon juice and put it in a jar. Now you have your personal hand scrub. Stir it again before usage, if the sugar is on the bottom of the jar.
And now, I allow myself a tequila. All this tattle about lemons … cheers. *yummy*
Love, Mel … xoxo
