Lemon Juice Astringent

When it comes to finding good beauty products you don’t have to look any further than your kitchen cabinets.

One of my favorites to use is fresh squeezed lemon juice. The high content of Vitamin C and citric acid in lemons makes it an effective skin care aid.

It helps:

• Exfoliate by removing dead skin cells
• Brightens
• Lightens acne spots
• Lightens age spots
• Removes blackheads
• Stimulates collagen

Squeeze fresh lemon juice into a glass jar and dab onto face with cotton ball. Let it sit on face for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse with warm water. Follow by a moisturizer of choice. Fresh squeezed lemon juice will last for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. If you have a large batch of juice you can freeze the juice in ice trays and then place the cubes in a freezer bag. Thaw one cube as needed.
