Lemon is a natural cleanser as well as an exfoliator that will keep your skin clean, clear and also improve the texture of your skin. The lightening properties in lemon will help to fade acne scars as well as lighten and brighten the skin.
To make a lemon peel toner:
* Wash and grate the outer layer of four lemons in a bowl.
* Cut a lemon in half, squeeze the juice of it into a bowl and add the grated lemon peel to it. Direct application of lemon juice on your skin can make it dry so add about one to two teaspoon of honey or aloe vera gel to it.
* Pour it into a container and refrigerate it.
To use, shake the bottle well and apply it all over your face, gentle massage it in circular motion and leave it on for 5 min. Don’t worry if you have a tingling sensation it is just the lemon working on your skin. Rinse with cold water and pat dry.
