Lemon is a versatile fruit providing a number of benefits, they also provide a number of other skin, nail, and hair benefits. Take a look at five helpful beauty tips below
1. Remove Blackheads:
Take a lemon and slice it in half, rub the juice all over your face and wait five minutes before rinsing it off with cold water. Lemons have antibacterial properties, making it a perfect blackhead remedy. Blackheads are caused by clogged pores.
2. Soften feet:
Lemon juice is great for feet, as it will help soften rough skin on the bottom and also kill bacteria that builds up under your toenails. Get a large bowl and combine 3 cups of lemon juice, 6 cups of water, 3 tbsp of cinnamon powder, and 1 cup of coconut milk. Soak your feet in the bowl for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
3. Lighten Your Hair:
Skip the dye, this is a perfect and gradual remedy for your hair. Mix the juice from four lemons with ¼ cup of warm water, put it in a spray bottle, and spray it in your hair until it’s damp. Make sure you only expose your hair to the sun for about 30-60 minutes, depending on how light you want to make it. After you’re done, take a shower and use conditioner, as lemon juice can sometimes dry out your hair.
4. Strengthen Nails:
Soaking nails into lemon juice for about 10 minutes and rinsing them with warm water once a week will not only help them to grow but will also remove any discoloration.
5. Lighten Discolored Armpits and Elbows:
Discoloration and hyper-pigmentation happens to people a lot especially in the armpit area. Since lemon acts as a bleaching agent, rubbing a cut lemon on armpits or elbows will help to lighten the skin in those areas.
