When life gives you lemons, use their zesty juice on anything and everything!
With their weight-loss powers, secret uses and refreshing scent, lemons are our favorite Sour Patch Kid. Not only are the yellow orbs rich in 100 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C—a powerful antioxidant that lowers your cardiovascular disease risk and can also boost fat-burning by up to 25 percent—but they're also way more versatile than you can imagine.
First… The Beauty Hacks!
1. Wave Goodbye To Acne
Ever wondered how to get rid of pesky pimples and the ugly marks they leave behind without breaking your piggy bank at the dermatologist’s office? Luckily, your solution costs pocket change and is probably already in your fridge! Lemons are perfect for erasing pustules, blackheads, and their leftover scars. All you have to do is dip a cotton ball into freshly squeezed lemon juice (you only need about a tablespoon!) and then rub it on the affected area for about five minutes each day. The fruit is naturally styptic, which can stop the bleeding and its acidity will kiss inflamed and comedone acne goodbye.
2. Take A Dip Into The Fountain Of Youth
If your less than stellar skin is making you look a decade older than you really are, turn to your lemon’s mighty juices. Patting lemon juice on your skin will help tighten it and smooth out fine lines.
