Lemon as a beauty aid

Advertisement

The diminutive lemon is a very versatile beauty-aid and this cheap and golden-coloured fruit has excellent properties for enhancing your looks. Simple lemon-based preparations, you can mix in your own kitchen, will surely bring a dramatic transformation in your beauty regimen.

Smell Lemons


Lemon for complexion
Lemon contains enzymes which help to cleanse the skin of dead cells. Sprinkling a little alum on a lemon half and rubbing the mixture on your face helps tremendously to refresh and tone the skin. It also acts as a quick pick-me-up after a long pollution filled day.

Lemon for smooth skin
Mash an over-ripe banana and mix it with a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Apply on face and hands to keep the skin clear and smooth. Mix a teaspoon of honey with a teaspoon of vegetable oil and one fourth of a teaspoon of lemon juice. Rub this into the hands, elbows, heels and any area that feels dry. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with water.

Lemon and honey face pack for dry skin
Mix 3 tsp lemon juice, 2 tsp honey, ½ tsp cabbage (boiled and crushed) paste. Mix to a paste all these ingredients in a dish and apply it on face and neck; wash off with cold water after 10 minutes and admire the new “you”!



Lemon and almond face pack for freckles
To remove freckles, blanch and grind almonds and mix with white of an egg to which half tsp of lime juice has been added. Spread on the face and wash after 20 minutes.

Lemon and papaya face pack for oily skin:
Mix ½ tsp turmeric powder, 2 tsp lemon juice, 3 tsp papaya pulp to a smooth paste. Apply evenly over the face (keeping away from the eyes). Leave the pack on for 20 minutes and then wash it off.

Lemon for teeth whitening
Rubbing half a lemon with table salt and a pinch of baking soda on the teeth not only makes them white, shiny and bright but will also cure bad breath.

Lemon for dark elbows
Rub lemon halves and then wash off with water. Over a period of time, it will cleanse the skin and lighten its color.

Lemon for treating hair loss
Mix lemon juice with four tablespoons of coconut milk and apply once a week.

Lemon for treating grey hair
*Beat lemon juice in castor oil until frothy and add henna powder to it before applying it on your hair. Wash off after it dries or keep it overnight.
*Massaging few drops of lime juice with ‘amla’ juice every night before going to bed, stops falling of hair, promotes hair growth and prevents premature graying.

Lemon for treating an itchy scalp and dandruff
Take an egg white and mix it with the juice of a lemon. Apply this to the hair roots and rub it in. Wash it off after an hour. Repeat for a month.

Lemon for a hair rinse
Add lemon juice to a mug of water and use it as a last rinse, after your shampoo. Or boil used tea leaves in enough water and cool the liquid. Add the juice of a lemon and use it as a last rinse. This helps add shine to the hair.

Lemon for glossy hair
Mix 6 tsp of lemon juice, 2 tsp of honey and 2 tsp of rose water in a glass bottle and shake it vigorously before use. This scalp tonic can be preserved for a month if kept in a cool dark place. Massage this tonic with fingertips  into the scalp and take head bath after half an hour.

Lemon for chapped lips
Mix a teaspoon each of cream, lemon juice and honey and rub it on your lips. Use for a week to see results.

Lemon as an anti-wrinkle mask
Mix a teaspoon of honey, a few drops of fresh lemon juice and a drop of sweet almond oil. Apply this on the face and allow it to dry for 20 minutes and wash off.

Lemon face scrub
Mix cold milk and fresh lemon juice with powdered almonds or powdered orange peel or oatmeal. Rub the skin gently with this mix. Mix a tablespoon of honey with two tablespoons of finely ground almonds and half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Rub this gently on the face. Rinse off with warm water.

Lemon as natural bleach
Mix equal proportions of tomato juice, lemon juice and milk and apply on face and body.  

Lemon as a skin tonic
The juice of a fresh pear and apple with a few drops of fresh lemon juice acts as a good skin tonic.
 
Face and body pack with lemon and milk
A fresh lime may be squeezed into a cup of milk to which a teaspoon of glycerin may be added. Stir well. Apply it on your face, neck, hands, legs and feet, an hour before retiring to bed. Keep it on for half an hour and then wash off. This application every night will make the skin look younger and beautiful. This application works well on pimples and scars, is good for cracked soles and palms, dryness of face and hands, and sun-burn. 

Lemon and yoghurt pre-bath gel:
Turmeric when combined with lemon and starch, acts as an effective cleanser and also forms a barrier between the drying effect of chlorinated water and body skin. The following is an excellent body pack.Mix 8 tsp of yoghurt (curds), 3 tsp. Lemon juice, 5 tsp starch (rice), 1 tsp of turmeric &1 tsp of any vegetable oil. Apply this body pack with firm, upward movements. Wash off after 10 minutes and take a bath. This is perhaps one of the oldest skin rejuvenation therapies. Use this at least thrice a week for a satiny skin. 

Lemon and almond oil lotion for beautiful hands:
You will agree that your hands are on show just as much as your face. Pamper your hands with this simple & inexpensive lotion. Mix 3 tsp lemon juice, 6 tsp honey and 8 tsp almond oil in a dish. Massage well into hands for 10 to 12 minutes. Wash with a mixture of equal portions of vinegar and water. Preserve this lotion in a bottle for use on your hands. This lotion keeps well for 2 weeks. 

Lemon for health:
You should make it a habit to start the day with lemon juice. Sip the juice of a lemon in a glass of warm water, sweetened with 1 tsp of honey. It will clear your entire system and relieve constipation. This sour fruit's glucose and mineral content also helps replace loss of the body's fluids through sweat, especially during the summer months. It stimulates blood circulation, reduces arterial pressure, and activates bile and intestinal secretions. Check out this comprehensive list of home remedies with lemon.

  8. Lemon helps us in a lot of ways..for example the best dandruff home remefy using household products is curd and lemon paste.

    For this, take some quantity of curd (depending on the scalp) and add lemon juice (half or one lemon depending on the length of your hair) to it.

    Apply this mixture evenly on the scalp and hair. Allow this for more than half an hour and rinse with a mild shampoo. Repeat this for good results

    Lemon is a very good cleanser for oily skin due to its acidic contents. Simply soak a cotton ball with fresh lemon juice and gently rub your facial skin avoiding eye contact. For better skin care, repeat the procedure and rinse with cold water. This makes the skin soft and smooth.
    Natural Cleanser for Normal Skin
    Milk and lemon make an effective and cheap homemade facial cleanser for normal skin. Every one has milk in the kitchen at all the times, also make a habit to always keep lemons as well. Take about half a cup of boiled milk and squeeze a lemon in it. Strain and start your homemade facial treatment

    Lemons can be rubbed directly onto skin and left for about 2 hours before rinsing. This is good to reduce wrinkles and treat blemishes. The treatment will work better if followed by olive oil after rinsing. It works by speeding up skin renewal and uncovering a fresh new layer of skin. However, it is important not to do this before going out in the sun as it will have a bleaching effect.

    Do NOT brush your teeth with lemons. It only whitens them because it wears away the calcium, which is generally yellowish and a darker color. Calcium is important to healthy teeth!
    If life throws you lemons, just floss instead.
    You'll save the calcium.

    lemon peel essential oil has the ability to stimulate the white corpuscles in the blood, which defends the body and fights infection.
    It is also used to balance the pH of the skin, by counteracting acidity on its surface and acts as a very mild natural bleach or lightener on the skin, which enables it to brighten dull skin color and calm redness, as well as the irritation of an inflamed skin.

    Lemon juice is a bit harsh on the skin and can bring a burning sensation to sensitive skin if used alone. never use it before going out in the sun and never use it on n e open wounds...if u don't have sensitive skin just take a wedge of lemon and rub it on your face, let it dry up for a minute and wash off...it takes about 10 uses to see really nice results

    Lemon Facial-Fill a large bowl or pan with warm water, the juice of half a lemon and a handful of rose petals (they soften dry skin), mint leaves (an oily skin toner), rosemary (to keep normal skin balanced) or chamomile (to calm sensitive skin). Place your face over the bowl (or pan) and absorb the lemon steam for 10 minutes (It’s very deep-cleaning). Rinse with cool water.

    I noticed some pigmentations on my face (shadowy and freckle like brown spots). I decided to try some home remedy before going to the doctor. I tried to gently rub a slice of lime to the affected area, leave it for a few minutes, rinse, pat dry with soft towel and apply my regular moisturizer. I tried it 2 times a week for a month. The effect was very noticeable. The shadowy portion was gone and the brown spots became lighter. Now, I do it regularly on a weekly basis. Lime rub is now part of my daily skin care regiment not only on my face but to my elbows, knees, arms, legs and armpits

    Citruses like oranges, lemons, and limes are rich in Vitamin C which is a natural bleaching agent. Of all citrus fruits, however, lemon is considered as one of the most effective home remedies for facial dark spots, especially for freckles and age spots. Simply apply some lemon juice directly on the spot, either with your hands or using a dab of cotton. The citric acid in the juice would work to bleach the spot and clarify your skin.

    Before bed, apply straight, fresh lemon juice to your face with a clean makeup brush. Leave the juice on your skin for five minutes. Rinse. Temporary redness, caused by the citric acid, is normal.For a morning toner, combine 10 drops of lemon juice with one half cup of water. Saturate a cotton ball with mixture and dab over clean skin. Do not rinse.

    Lemon and Honey combined can make you fairer, but only over a long period of time. However, the results are not that drastic compared to prescriptions made to make the skin lighter. Remember that usually you can't become much lighter than your original skin colour. So the lemon/honey combination might "brighten" your face but it won't exactly "whiten" it.

    Well lemons are known to have bleaching properties. What you do is shave your armpits and then like a few days later get a lemon slice and rub it onto your armpits and leave it in, don't rinse it out! Keep doing that a few times a day for 3-4 days, then don't do it one day, and then shave the day after. Do that cycle until your skin starts lightening back to its normal tone.

    There are many ways to lighten your skin. One popular way to do it is to rub lemon slices on your skin in the morning before your shower, but also making a flour and milk concoction and rubbing it on your skin can help too, but it's gradual. Bleaching cream will give you the best results, but it's more dangerous.

    I want to try lemon for the skin. I hate when dirt gets so imbeded inot the skin causing inflamations. I wash and scrub but this might help as well. Looking forward to this and will try tonight.
