Lemon: An Antioxidant Source

Lemons are among the citrus fruit family. Just like oranges, limes and grapefruit, lemons are packed with antioxidants. The antioxidant that is the most abundant within lemon is vitamin C. Vitamin C has been known to fight off colds, infections and disease. This antioxidant is like giving your skin a shield or cloak to protect it from damage. Beauty benefits of lemon include using it to simply add antioxidants to your skin. Beauty benefits of lemon also include cleansing your skin, removing impurities, tightening skin and healing skin.

Of course you don’t want to use lemon on a cut, but it can heal your skin by adding antioxidants. So anytime you don’t have a cut you can rub some lemon to tighten up and clean your skin. Lemon is also very great for oily skin and is used in may oily skin facial masks to help clean away excess oils. If you are in need of a product that already has the benefits of vitamin C built in try a LifeCell damage healing cream.

Here is a good technique to try to clear your skin of black heads and impurities using lemons:

Lemon Blackhead Cleansing Recipe

This is absolutely the most extreme measure you should go to in clearing your blackheads. Use it no more than once a week. Avoid your eye area and do not do this if you have any sores or scratches on your facial skin. Use a dedicated toothbrush only for blackhead cleaning. Do not use your regular tooth brush because this can cause skin irritation due to leftover tooth paste or bacteria. In between scrubbing treatments, dunk your toothbrush in a glass of hydrogen peroxide to keep it clean.

How to do this: Using a soft bristled brush (nothing firmer), pour a small amount of lemon juice on the toothbrush, along with a drop or two of oily-skin friendly oil like jojoba, tamanu, or neem. Very gently scrub your blackhead areas with the head of your toothbrush. You can rinse with water and reapply with lemon and oil if you feel like you need to. Just do this gently in circular motions to cleanse and wipe away unnecessary filth that could be on your skin.
