They say that to be beautiful. You have to be rich. I agree to a certain extent. Understandably, you won't find beggars with nails on the street because they are simply unavailable. But what I want to tell you is beauty tips that will save you from spending more money and get the best results, no matter what. Have you seen the hacks around lemons on different social media platforms? In fact, some of them are true! Lemons are truly amazing in their own way. I'm going to share with you five beautiful and simple tips for using lemons that you can buy at the nearest grocery shop in your area!
But first, allow me to define a lemon. The lemon is a small evergreen tree native to Asia, especially in northeast India, northern Burma, and China. It is a member of the flowering plant family Rutaceae. Lemons are rich in vitamin C. One lemon contains about 31 mg of vitamin C, which is 51% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI).
Now, let's take a look at 5 beauty tips you can do with lemons!
Repairing pores and aging with lemon.
Repairing pores with lemon is possible because it has an astringent component. This will repair the unpleasant pores on your face. In fact, lemon can even help you treat blackheads or whiteheads, thanks to the citric acid it possesses. Lemons are known to be rich in vitamin C, a natural stimulant of collagen production, which reduces the signs of aging.
Use lemons to get rid of dandruff.
If you ask me, how does lemon get rid of dandruff that is almost embedded in the scalp? Well, lemon is an effective remedy against dandruff and is used regularly by people all over the globe. But if this is the first time you've heard of it, let me explain how lemon removes dandruff from the roots of your hair.
There are many well-known methods, but my suggestion and highly recommended method is to pair it with yogurt taken out of the mini-fridge. In a bowl, mix two tablespoons of yogurt with one tablespoon of extracted lemon juice. Mix well and apply directly to the scalp. Massage it in for a while and let it stay on for at least an hour, then rinse off with shampoo and conditioner.
Lighten your underarms, elbows, and knees with lemon.
I'll say it again: lemons are rich in vitamin C, which works its magic on almost everything, including fading dark spots on the skin. To do this, take a lemon, squeeze its juice into a bow and add an equal amount of water. Dampen it with a cloth or piece of cotton on the dark spot you wish to lighten. Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then rinse with purified water. Please repeat the process as many times as you need.
Lemon as a stretch mark remover.
I must start with the fact that I have stretch marks myself. I love it. It looks like tiger stripes, and I'm actually not bothered by it. Stretch marks are natural and beautiful if you learn to move your shots. But if you do want to get rid of yours, this is the natural alternative solution. Go ahead and extract lemon juice and add baking soda to the mixture. Apply them directly to the stretch marks, let them sit for a while, and then rinse them off.
