When people ask me what my favourite food is, I say LEMONS! okay, not really (I say Doritos, mmm), but it is the food I use most.
It may be unpleasant to eat, but lemon can whiten your teeth. Whenever I have water, I always put a slice of lemon in. Takes 5 seconds, and your body will thank you! (It makes drinking 2 litres of watera day a bit less boring too!)
But the best best BEST thing about lemons? Well. I used to have HORRENDOUS red blotchy skin. This was from acne at about 15, and I admit I picked my spots, resulting in red scars that seemed to multiply and refused to be covered by makeup.
It got to the point where I was looking at surgical options.
Now, aged 17, I discovered something amazing.
I rub lemon juice into my skin morning and night and the redness has nearly gone. It’s incredible! So here’s my how to on lemon lightening skin routine.
- You don’t have to have fresh lemon for this. You can use the stuff that comes in the bottle, as long as it’s 100% lemon juice!
- With clean, makeup free skin, rub lemon juice on to the red blotchy areas of your skin.
- Let the lemon sink in around 5 minutes before you moisturise.
I saw results in 3 days, however, if your skin isn’t horrifically scarred like mine, I’d recommend 3-4 days a week.
Lemons truly are a life saver for me! I know my skin isn’t perfect, but it’s only been two weeks, and it very nearly is!
