When life gives you lemons!




Use them to your advantage! :)


Here is a few fantastic lemon tricks for you all!

Lemons are AMAZING for your skin, they help remove the dead skin cells on your face, they also help with Blackheads, Acne, Discoloration, Sunspots, Freckles, Age spots, Blemishes, Boils, Cold-sores and even helps to reduce scarring. (if you do either the face wash/facial scrub)

*Wet your face with warm water
*Take a slice of lemon
*Either apply directly to the face or squeeze the lemon juice onto a cotton pad.
*Rub it in circular motions around the whole of your face (mind your eyes though!)

*Dry.
Done!

*Wet your face with warm water
*Take a slice of lemon
*Squeeze the lemon juice onto a cotton pad
*Sprinkle a teaspoon amount of sugar onto the cotton pad.
*Rub it in circular motions around the whole of your face (mind your eyes though!)
*Rinse your face with warm water.

Please note if you have sensitive skin, dilute the lemon juice with water before applying it to your face!

You can do the lemon wash/scrub as many times as you want per week, whatever you feel best is for your skin.


xx Drink lemon xx
Lemon is an antioxidant so i recommend drinking it, it will help flush toxins out of your body, get nutrients into your system to help keep you healthy and it may even help you lose weight! So..
Add a slice of lemon to either a cup of boiled water, a glass of cold water or even add a slice to a cup of green tea.

They say it's best to try and drink a cup of warm (boiled water) with lemon in the morning! :)


xx Tan removal xx
Had a fake tan gone wrong?
Got a streak after applying fake tan?
Or just want to remove fake tan without having to wait for it to go naturally?
Then either
*Squeeze lemon juice onto a cotton pad and apply it to the areas you want to strip the fake tan.
*Take a wedge of lemon and rub it to the fake tan areas.
or even cut slices of lemon and put them in a nice warm/hot bath, then exfoliate using either a body scrub, an exfoliating glove or a loofah.

Hope these beauty tips have become helpful to you!
