The Wonders and Benefits in Lemon Water

Updated on January 5, 2016

Lemon has been known for ages for its antibacterial and antiviral properties which help boost up our immune system. Lemon contains lots of nutrients that are beneficial to our health such as Citric Acid, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Bioflavonoid, Pectin and Limonene. This is some of the benefits of lemon water that you may or may not know of.

Removing Acne

Lemon contains citric acid which works well in curing acne prone skin. Vitamin C found in lemon is one important property that helps in making your skin healthy and glow.


Take a cotton ball, soak in lemon water and wipe the cotton ball soak in lemon on your pimples. Let it sit there overnight and cleanse your face the next morning. You might feel stink on your face when you try it for the first time but as you get used to it, you won’t feel that stinking sensation anymore.

Another method you can try is lemon and honey facemask. Cut the lemon in half and adds honey. Place the mixture onto your pimples and let it sit there for 15-30 minutes. Wash your face afterwards with water. Do this twice weekly. I recommend doing this only at night before going to sleep. If there are further acne problems, it’s better to ask for advice from dermatologist or doctor before continuing with this treatment.

Remove Mouth Ulcer

Antibacterial and antiviral properties found in lemon helps in speeding up the healing of mouth ulcer.


Squeeze a lemon and mix it with warm water. Take the mixture and gargle it for at least 3 times a day. It might stink a little at first but as you get used to it, you won’t feel that stinking sensation anymore.

Heals corn and calluses


Place a cut lemon about 5mm thick on your warts and wrap it up neatly. Let it sit overnight.

You can also try taking a cotton ball or Q-tip (to prevent getting in touch with unaffected areas), soak it in concentrated essential lemon oil which hasn’t been melted and wipe it across the affected area.

Treats Eczema

Lemon Wrap might just be the right treatment for those of you who suffers from skin infection.


Add 8 drops of essential lemon oil into a 250ml of warm water and also 15ml of honey.

Mix it well. Take a towel and soak in the towel into the mixture and place the towel onto affected areas for 15minutes. Do this 2-3 times a day. This does not only heal the affected area but also prevent the tendency of scratching the skin.

Relieve Fatigue

If you feel really tired, you can try this remedy. This is especially good for travelers.


Drink lemon water from time to time. This does not only acts as a medicine but also as refreshment. Adding lemon to water also acts as an antiseptic which helps prevent allergic reaction to consuming variety of different drinks.
