While some people spend thousands on different anti-aging products and procedures to get rid of those fine lines that are just a part of getting older or a result of sun damage, I grew up with a mother who was looked 20 years younger than her actual age so I learnt a few tricks here and there.
I’m not saying I have the secret to anti-aging (I wish), I’ve just seen this work on different people who I had recommended this DIY Face Mask routine and couldn’t believe the results. I therefore have a weekly routine of cracking 1 egg and squeezing 1 lemon into a bowl and applying the mixture onto my face until it dries. The mask can get really tight, but this is just the effect of tightening your face from the egg and the lemon has numerous benefits such as:
1. Diminishes scars and age spots
The discoloration caused by scars, certain skin disorders and age spots can be diminished by applying lemon juice to the discolored area. It may be helpful to apply at bedtime and leave the lemon juice on the skin over night.
2. Heals acne
Lemon juice has natural antibacterial properties that make it a good choice to help cure acne and prevent further breakouts. Using lemon juice on blackheads has been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of blackheads. If you leave lemon juice on the acne and blackheads over night, be sure to wash it off in the morning.
Lemon juice is a natural exfoliant since the citric acid acts as a gentle “skin peel” that removes the top layer of dead skin cells. This will result in a smooth complexion when used regularly.
4. Other benefits
Other benefits of using lemon juice on the skin may include brightening or lightening the skin, moisturizing and toning oily skin, and fighting wrinkles.
As you may know if you have read or watched some of my DIY Face Mask YouTube videos, I am a fan of all things natural, and this is something that anyone can try to have amazing benefits from and comment below if you have found that this work does or doesn’t work for you.
