When life gives you lemons what do you do with them? Well besides making lemonade and lemon chicken, lemons can be used for hair and skin. The sunny (super) sour yellow fruit can be an easy, cheap, and effective substitute for some hair and skin care products. Lemons have a vast range of fabulous beauty benefits and after reading this, you’ll want to load up on the citrus fruit.
One step and one step only: mix a few drops of lemon juice together with some coconut water. And that’s it! The coconut will hydrate your skin while the lemon will clear and brighten it — the result: clear, hydrated, and radiant skin! We hope you enjoy your new skin care products.
Natural Hair Highlighter
Adding lemon juice to your hair prior to being in the sun will leave you with sun-kissed au naturel highlights. Not only is this a much cheaper option, but it also can help treat a dry scalp. Shiny natural highlights plus a dandruff free scalp — a win win situation!
Suffering from dry, brittle, stained, weak nails? Have no fear, olive oil and lemon juice is here! Simply combine the 2 ingredients together, soak your nails right into the mixture, and vuela —
stronger and harder nails. Not to mention softer and shinier skin thanks to the oil.
And finally the best and brightest tip yet! So this may sound a tad bizarre but hey, if you want whiter teeth (for cheap) without the hassle of going to the dentist then here you go: 1) mix lemon juice with baking powder, 2) stir together, 3) place mixture directly on your teeth, and 4) smile big and bright to show off those pearly whites!
