Packed with vitamin C, the humble lemon’s benefits go a long, long way, beyond just building your immunity. Squeeze a lemon and apply it on your skin to cure pimple marks or just mix it with some natural ingredients like honey, yogurt or chickpea to get rid of acne that often leaves unsightly scars on the face.
Pure Lemon Juice
Take some lemon juice in a small bowl, soak a cotton ball in it and squeeze out the excess juice from it. Apply the lemon juice to the acne-affected area. Leave it on the skin for 10 minutes or till the lemon juice dries out completely. Rinse the area with water, then pat dry with a clean towel. Repeat this remedy twice every day.
Lemon Juice & Honey
Take lemon juice and honey in a bowl; mix well. Apply this mixture to the acne-affected area with your finger tips and leave it on for five minutes. Wash the area with water and pat dry with a clean towel. Follow this remedy once a day.
Lemon & Egg-White Mask
Take an egg and separate the white. Add two tablespoons of lemon juice to it and whisk well. Divide the mixture into three parts. Apply the first layer of the mixture to the skin and leave on for five to seven minutes, then apply the second layer. After five to seven minutes, apply the third layer to the acne. After five to seven minutes, clean the area with warm water, then pat the skin dry. Follow this remedy regularly.
Lemon & Chickpea
Take the chickpea powder in a small bowl and squeeze lemon juice on it. Mix the ingredients well to make a smooth paste. Apply it on the acne-affected skin and leave it on for a few minutes. Rinse the area with lukewarm water and wipe the skin with a clean towel. You can apply your regular moisturizer to the skin if you feel it’s become dry. Use this remedy once every day.
Lemon & Yogurt
Take lemon juice and yogurt in a bowl and mix well to make a paste. Apply this paste on the acne-affected area with your fingertips. Leave it on for a few minutes, then wash the area with water. Repeat this process regularly.
