Lemon Juice for Brown Spots


I have always adored lemons :) It is routine for me to have a lemon in my water with meals. When I head home (down South) I can't wait to have sweet iced tea with yes... lemon! I love natural cleaning products that contain lemon. Lots and lots of lovely little lemons. What is not to love about lemons? Now I am using lemons in my beauty routine.

Lemon juice is the key to lightening age spots and freckles. Its powerful acid action really does the trick.

1. To exfoliate dead skin and diminish the appearance of freckles and age spots, cut a lemon in half, dip the juicy side into 1/2 teaspoon sugar granules (raw sugar works great too). Rub over the skin (problem area) for a few minutes. Repeat at least once a week until the darkened areas fade.

2. Or–simply sit with a slice of lemon applied directly to the area for ten minutes. Repeat once a week until spots fade.

Let me know how this works for you...

7 ways to enjoy a Green Christmas

1. Scrap traditional wrap: Use kids artwork or beautiful scrap fabrics. Consider saving this years holiday cards for next years gift wrap or gift tags.

2. Shop Local: Neighborhood shops offer unique and special gifts. Keep your local economy thriving.

3. Put a twinkle in your tree: Use LED Lights: Energy-saving LED lights burn brighter, last longer, and save you money. They even make solar outdoor holiday lights.

4. Green Greetings: Send E- Holiday Cards vs wasting paper and stamps with traditional paper cards.

5. Give Back: Give a gift that makes a difference—changing a life or saving a life. Donate to a local or favorite charity in a friend’s name.

6. While planning your gift list, think of educating your friends and family. Introduce your loved ones to natural organic gifts (natural skin care, makeup, local organic jams and soy candles)

7. Once holiday is over, re-purpose your Christmas tree into mulch for hiking trails and paths. The experts suggest that Christmas trees can also be used for erosion control and soil stabilization.

Happy Holidays!
