Lemon for body care
Instead of buying expensive facial masks which often leave you unsatisfied, why not make your own facial mask or a peeling from natural ingredients?
Lemon is one of the leading natural remedies due to its antiseptic antibacterial properties. It belongs to the citrus group and precisely its precious ingredients, vitamin C in particular, are very effective in body care.
Natural lemon juice is an excellent exfoliant so it’s no wonder it is a common ingredient of numerous natural peeling facial masks. It yields the best results in treating open pores, wrinkles, oily skin, cracked and colored skin, including hives. It is also a remedy for acne and blackheads.
