The Essentials of a Limon

Updated on August 30, 2017

History of Limon

What is a lemon?

A lemon 'limon' is a citrus. Originating from an evergreen tree located in Asia. This citrus fruit is at the top of the charts for citric acid being the top source of potassium, aiding in insect bites, antibacterial gargles, and preventing scurvy.

Experiencing body and facial acne is normal for teens and adults. We know all too well that we are still beautiful regardless, we just cannot help, but try to fix this 'problem'. Searching high and low to make your skin brighter and healthier. Can be a frustrating journey. This trick will help to avoid spending extra money on something that may not work. There are plenty of in-house items you can use to make an acne removal kit. There is not a time limit to when you will see results. Typically, results show in two weeks or more.

Personally, trying this method was the last hope. Not wanting to spend another thirty dollars on a three-step system. My decision was to try another homemade treatment. After using results starting showing a few days. No new breakouts have appeared. The nutritious that are in the lemon always leaves my face brighter.
For this lemon treatment, all that was needed was the following a container, cotton balls, one fresh lemon, and a spoon (to squeeze the juice from the lemon).

Benefits and Side Effects

Let's go over some of the benefits and side effects:

Vitamin C is an attribute to nourishing the skin. Giving hydration, and clearing of any acne and blemishes, yes. That is right. A lemon can clear up acne scars and help reduce pimples from forming. Its citric acid targets any unwanted bacteria. Eliminating them on sight. Despite that most people only add a lemon to drinking water or as a garnish. When applied directly to the skin is life changing.

The side effects that may occur are itchiness and redness. If used too much dryness make start to appear in certain areas. If this should appear while or after applying, you should stop immediately.
If there are acne scars or blemishes on your body, simply take the lemon and apply it to the affected areas. Let it sit for five to ten minutes, rinse off with lukewarm water. Repeat every day or every other day. Pay attention to what your skin is saying. It is not advised to repeat this more than once a day.

Making The Treatment


1. To begin, take a lemon and slice it in half.

2. Next, gather your container and strainer. Hold and squeeze. If using a spoon place the outside lemon on hand or against a firm object, take the back of the spoon and press against the lemon rim.

3. The strainer will catch the pulp and seeds that are inside the lemon halves.

4. Once your lemons are completely squeezed you are ready to store. Deciding to store it inside the refrigerator or in a room temperature area is up to the person. However, my suggestion is to go the refrigerator route. For the reason, as time passes depending on the container and temperature the heat may mess with the product. Experiencing a strong acid order when opening.

5. Applying is as simple as counting to three. To use this as an acne treatment take a cotton ball and dab it into the lemon juice. Apply to affected areas. Let it sit for about seven minutes, rinse with lukewarm water, and pat dry.

For people with extremely sensitive skin. An alternate for this method is adding water. Understanding that your skin cannot take the lemon juice in its natural form, is nothing to worry about. Add an equal amount of water to the raw lemon juice. Shake or stir well. Apply. Let it sit for about five minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Pat dry. For the best results, do not leave this on your face for more than ten minutes. Also, if your face begins to itch or turn red rinse off immediately. Pat your face dry. If you start to realize something is out of your normal go talk to a dermatologist.

Using this method is one of the best naturals, do it yourself homemade treatments. To see how your skin will react before applying to face. Apply a small amount to a different part of your body or consult your dermatologist. Areas to test are the chest area, the hand, or the wrist. These are the best places to test a product to see if an allergic reaction may occur.
Make sure you wash your face thoroughly before applying and after. If your skin is oily this treatment may work with leveling the oils in your skin. For dry skin this treatment provides hydration. Combination skin types may experience a mixture of dryness and itchiness if used more than once a day.

For all my makeup bunnies. It is still safe to wear makeup after using. If you're looking for a homemade makeup removal; be sure to check out my other articles.
