Lemons. Lime. A little dash of lemon in The Big Rajah’s Sunday Chicken?
There is many more use for the humble lemon. For beauty reasons, I use lemons as a personal skin care routine and here are some of my favourite.
1) Very often, I would drink a warm glass of lemon juice. As a food that has an alkaline effect on the body, lemons are said to help stimulate my liver, clear toxins naturally and help bowels eliminate naturally. Mixed with a spoon of honey, it is said to have positive effects on weight control.
2) Lemons to get rid of dead cells, refresh and tone my skin. Slowly zap away those zits and have a natural, healthy glow by squeezing some lemon juice into a glass of warm water and top it off with a drop or two of honey.
3) Need a natural hair conditioner? Rub some juice into your hair to rid dryness that may cause dandruff and the finished result? A lovely, lustrous shine!
4) When I am exhausted, before headin’ to bed, I add some lemon juice and glycerin to a glass of boiled milk. Smooth it all over your face and I wake up to glowing skin. Or during the day, I would add lemon to yoghurt and smear it on my face for around 15 minutes.
There are just so many goodness of lemons not just for beauty reasons, but the magnitude of health goodness and household cleaning uses are numerous.
