Shortly after I converted to the raw vegan diet, I realized that fruits have a plethora of amazing chemical properties that can entail great health and beauty. Although there are numerous fruits that enhance physical appearance while also facilitating wellness, the lemon stands out as uniquely effective in generating these results. Here are three beauty benefits of lemons:
1. They Whiten Our Teeth.
Individuals who want beautiful teeth but don’t want to spend a fortune to attain them can look to the lemon for help. In discussing the beauty benefits of lemons, Dana Oliver notes that you can use a homemade teeth whitener comprised of lemon juice and baking soda to get the pearly whites you want. To make it happen, mix the two ingredients together until they form a bubbly solution and then apply the solution to your teeth by using a Q-tip. Let the solution remain on your teeth for just one minute given that the acid is powerful enough to break down the enamel of your teeth. Once one minute has passed, scrub the solution away with a toothbrush. Be gentle in doing so.
2. They Fight Acne.
As many health and beauty experts know, lemons offer us a natural solution to treating acne. In discussing the health benefits of lemons, Facing Acne notes that lemon juice works by stopping signals sent to the immune system that cause inflammation. The juice of the lemon also works because it kills acne bacteria. To make lemon juice work for you, simply slice a lemon open and gently rub it over your face. Then wait five to ten minutes and rinse the juice from your face with cold water.
3. They Lighten Our Dark Spots.
Individuals who have ever had dark spots on their faces know how embarrassing they can be. Additionally, covering dark spots with foundation and/or concealer can be a tedious, time-consuming process that continually reminds you of your facial imperfections. Despite this challenge, there is hope to be found in the lemon. This is the case because the citric acid in lemon juice is capable of gradually evening our skin tone and fading dark spots. When you apply the lemon juice to your face, be careful if you have an open wound because this can cause a sting.
Oftentimes we as humans believe that solving beauty problems that we have necessitates a great deal of money. Yet as made plain by the information listed above, this is not always the case. In fact, lemons are an inexpensive measure you can use to enhance your physical appearance. So the next time you go to the grocery store, be sure to pick up a few and get ready to look good and feel great. Good luck!
