Can Lemons Provide Wrinkle Free Skin Care?
December 13, 2010|
As we age, we are all looking for the best anti aging skin care treatments that will provide us with wrinkle free skin care. One natural choice is lemons. They are rich in minerals and vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, Carotene, and Vitamin C. Lemons have anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-histamine properties, help tone the heart and blood vessels, can improve circulation in the peripherals, and make a useful stimulant for the liver.
In beauty treatments, Lemon was traditionally used to whiten skin and teeth, fade freckles, and blemishes, and lighten hair. It is especially useful for sufferers of greasy skin – just swab the fresh juice on as a masque (or wipe a slice of lemon over your skin). You can leave it on as long as you like (even overnight). The high antioxidant content of lemons makes them an excellent ingredient for wrinkle free skin care. Lemons also boost the micro-circulation of the skin, which helps remove blackheads and other blemishes and will leave your skin very soft.
Homemade Wrinkle Free Skin Care Recipes
- Soak a cotton ball with lemon juice (or the juice of a lemon) and apply to your face 2-3 times per day. This is very effective at fading skin blemishes, wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging, i.e. dark circles.
- Apply a mixture of lemon and milk cream on your forehead after washing your face with lukewarm water. Allow the mixture to totally dry and absorb well into your skin (about ½ hour). Then wash with your facial cleanser. This is one of the best home remedies for removing forehead wrinkles. You can skip the milk cream if you don’t have it.
- Mix together one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Massage your face, arms, and hands, wherever wrinkles are present. Do this for approximately one month and watch as the wrinkles disappear.
- To reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes, soak a cotton ball (morning and night) with lemon juice and apply it around the outside of your eyes. The acids in the lemon juice will diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
In summary, there is a lot of wrinkle free skin care information out there, however, most involve expensive creams and lotions. Why not try a simple, inexpensive, homemade recipe first.
