Using lemon on face isn’t new to anyone. They have been used for centuries together now in beauty rituals. The benefits of lemon on face are many; here are special 5 Reasons to use Lemon on Face. These mini wonder workers are readily available, cheap and easy to use. That being said, let’s jump into the uses!
Get rid of blackheads
Lemons for blackheads is a rescue mission. You may be familiar with using plain lemon juice for skin. But to get rid of blackheads, all you need to do is to apply some lemon juice and almond milk on blackheads and leave it for 15 minutes. Try this everyday before going for a bath until the pigmentation lightens.
Lemon for face pimples
Lemons on face may react differently on various skin types. For those with sensitive skin, dilute the acidity of lemon juice with some coconut oil and add two teaspoons of cinnamon powder. Others, who do not have a sensitivity to lemons or a sensitive skin, blend aloe vera gel with lime juice and use it liberally on affected areas.
Lemons on face overnight
Allowing lemon juice on face to stay overnight may lead to rashes since it is acidic. For a sensitive skin, Citric acid may aggravate acne and result in a much worse condition. But, if you want instant results, do try overnight lemon face packs as they are way better than 15-minute ones. Since choosing lemon to lighten skin is an excellent choice, they stay on your skin around the clock and make your skin bright and glowing.
Always remember to apply lemon juice on face when you are not going outside immediately. Exposing our lemon coated skin increases the intake of UV rays from the sun.

P.S. This mixture can be applied in teeth too, to get a Colgate smile
