Top 7 Benefits of Lemons for the Skin

When life gives you lemons..
Use them as a skincare product!

Do you know the TOP 7
benefits of lemons for your skin?

If you need a quick remedy for dull, oily and aging skin, look no further than your fridge! But if you don’t have sensitive skin, lemons can help your complexion in different ways:

#1 Exfoliating - Dull skin begone! Exfoliate with lemon to maintain clear, youthful skin! Lemon fruit acids are ideal for gentle exfoliation; add the vitamin content of lemons and you’ve got a complete skincare treatment right in your kitchen! To exfoliate, apply lemon juice on clean skin for 5-10 minutes then rinse.

#2 Brightening – It’s not a secret anymore that one of the best natural whitening products is lemon.
 Rub half a lemon on your face or any darker areas like elbows and knees. Repeat every day until you notice improvement in pigmentation. But remember to use sunscreen all time for increased protection!

#3 Neutralizing environmental damage – Sun, pollution and stress take their toll on your skin. Vitamin C is known to be a potent anti-oxidant that combats the effects of free radicals on your body. Why not use it on your skin as well? It helps prevent wrinkles and helps maintain skin elasticity. Mix a bit of lemon juice in your favourite home made treatment mask to reap the benefits of antioxidants!

#4 Toning – Tired skin is no longer a problem when you have a lemon at hand. Shrink pores and regain your glow with this concoction: in a glass of water, squeeze half a lemon and add a few cucumber slices then shake and let stand for 5 minutes. With a cotton ball, wipe your face for a minute then clean with cold water.

#5 Hydrating and nourishing – Lemons are popular for their Vitamin C content, don’t forget they are also a good source of folate, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B6. Lemon’s nutrients detoxify, repair and renew skin from the inside out. Use this 20 minute mask to energize your skin: one teaspoon each of lemon, honey and black tea infusion.

#6 Fighting wrinkles – because Vitamin C stimulates collagen formation, using lemon juice in your wrinkle treatments can improve your results. A home made, hydrating wrinkle treatment is a solution made of milk and a bit of lemon juice. Apply it on your face for 10 minutes then rinse with warm water.

#7 Pore cleansing– If your skin is oily, and clogged pores or blackheads are often a problem, lemon can help. Because of its exfoliating and astringent properties, overnight lemon juice treatment on problem areas can help you achieve a beautiful, smooth skin in the morning. Apply with a cotton swab where needed and let dry.

A Simple Natural Everyday
Bright-Eyed Beauty Tip


1x Brown Eyeshadow 

1x Eyeshadow Applicator/Brush

1x Brown Eyeliner

1x Eyelash Curler (optional)

1x Mascara  (optional)

The enlarging eye effect starts with drawing! Using a brown eyeshadow, strengthen your look by applying it lightly right below your eye starting at the middle. Doing so can visually make the eyelid range look elongated and make the whites of your eyes appear brighter. On the upper eyelid, apply a light brown eyeliner along with a bit of brown eyeliner. Don't forget to work with your lashes - curl them then apply mascara.

This is a great everyday look for a more awake and fresh appearance. Give it a shot!

Best Way to Apply Mascara?

One of the most common questions about mascara: 
Where and how should I start applying it?

It seems easy, just  "apply mascara to your lashes". But really, it all depends on HOW you 
apply your mascara to make it look great. Mascaras come in a large variety of forms, functions and colors. As long as you have a basic mascara, you  can have lashes that give your eyes that little flare..

Just Follow These 
4 Easy Steps!

Step 1 Start at the bottom of the lashes and zig-zag the wand from left to right. It's the mascara placed near the roots -- not the tips -- that gives the illusion of length. 

Step 2 Pull the wand up and through lashes, wiggling as you go. 

Step 3 Close eye and place the mascara wand on top of lashes at the base and pull through to remove any clumps. 

Step 4 Use a small brush to go over each lash individually for desired volume and length.
