One year ago, we were, if nothing else, schooled by Queen Yoncè on necessity to ‘find inner strength to pull ourselves up’ & from lemons we may inadvertently be served in life, to make Lemonade. As we keep pushing right on forward through 2017, we hope to encourage you to do so in your best Formation! In Summer 2017 Formation guide, we have an amazing Lemonade + Lemons exposé in ode to these life game changers. But, for now, we’ll just share some of great ways to make Lemonade out of lemons on your own w. these great lemon beauty uses.
Clarifying Moisturizer | Mix a few drops of coconut water w. a few drops of lemon juice. Coconut will hydrate your skin, & lemon will clear & brighten it.
Teeth Whitener | Mix baking soda & lemon juice, & apply it to your teeth w. a clean Q-tip. Then, use your toothbrush to scrub your teeth & rinse. It's way cheaper than going to your dentist's office.
Skin Brightener | Lemons are rich in vitamin C & citric acid, so they can help brighten & lighten your skin when used over time. Vitamin C in lemons neutralizes free radicals & boosts collagen production, to help lighten age spots, dark spots, or a fake tan gone wrong.
Shine Eliminator: Lemon is great for reducing excess oil.
Lip Exfoliator: Put a little lemon juice on your lips before bedtime, & wash it off in morning to help remove dead skin cells & dried skin.
