The Natural Skin Whitening Ingredient
Lemon, and the vitamin C it contains, is a well known natural ingredient with the benefit of brightening your skin’s complexion, among others.
Some of the benefits of lemon as a skincare product ingredient for your skin are:
Due to its acidic level, lemon has astringent qualities and high pH level, which can help reduce oil which can contribute to the formation of acne and decrease inflammation.
Lemon also has AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) in the form of citric acid, which helps break down dead skin cells which may lead to blackheads and other noninflammatory forms of acne.
The antimicrobial effects of lemons can help tame bacteria which lead to inflammatory acne: Propionibacterium Acnes. Lemon also has antifungal effects, which can help treat Candida rashes.
Lemon, like other citrus ingredients, helps brighten skin complexion, including acne scars, age spots, and the hair on your face.
As an antioxidant, the vitamin C in lemon can help counter free radicals which can damage collagen, resulting in smoother skin.
While lemon has many beneficial effects for your skin, it is not recommended to apply lemon juice directly to your skin, as it may irritate your skin. Instead, we recommend you to find the skincare product which focuses on the benefits which your skin needs, including skincare products which contain lemon or the benefits a lemon offers.
