Five uses of lemon for a great skin.
The vitamin C found in citrus fruits is vital for that healthy glowing skin while its alkaline nature kills some types of bacteria known to cause acne. In addition to drinking lemon juice with water first thing in the morning, you can also apply it topically and let it dry on acne, eczema and blackheads. Rinse off the residue with a mixture of olive oil and water.
Pour the juice into a plastic container or bottle that you can keep in the refrigerator. Each night before bed, dampen a cotton swab or the corner of a washcloth with lemon juice and dab it onto your blemishes. Leave it on overnight. If the lemon juice begins to irritate your skin, rinse it away with cool water after a few minutes. Apply it again in the morning. Results should show in about a week.
