Ladies, it’s all about lemons… or at least right now. This very acidic fruit that grows in abundance in France is used all over the planet by various beauty experts, and for good reason.
It contains beauty stimulating elements, such as unique flavonoid compounds, vitamin C and vitamin B. Here’s how six Beauty taste creators use this simple ingredient to beautify the world.
Anaelle Bernstein, esthetician and facial care specialist , claims that lemons are perfect for dull or damaged hair. To make your favorite DIY hair mask, simply combine a cup of olive oil, ½ cup of honey and three tablespoons of lemon juice and set aside. Shampoo your hair and comb the lemon juice mixture through your locks. Then cover your hair with a shower cap. Leave the mixture on for half an hour, then shampoo again for a radiant shower shine.
For the therapist
The skin lemons are fantastic for softening nail cuticles. She regularly uses them as an ideal treatment for her clients, as does the celebrity stylist and founder of Yamaguchi salons, Billy Yamaguchi. His team uses Limoneira lemons for the Cooler lemon pedicure at the Yamaguchi salon at the Four Seasons in Westlake Village, California.
For the skin
Dr Chiaki Kawashima, beauty and skin care expert in Japan, uses lemon in many treatments at the Azabu Skin Clinic in Tokyo, specializing in rejuvenation nt natural. Perfect as a natural exfoliation technique, it suggests simply rubbing a lemon cut in half a teaspoon of sugar on your face for a few minutes to remove dead skin cells.
If you are too fat, Norma Garza, founder of Norma’s Touch Skin Specialty Spa in Houston, recommends combining two tablespoons of lemon juice, two tablespoons of vodka, one tablespoon distilled water and a tablespoon of witch hazel. She says to apply the mixture with a cotton ball on oily skin, like you would a toner. The citric acid in lemon helps balance your pH level and your oil production.
