#3 Reasons Why you should love LIME

12:30


There are a lot of natural products that give great results when included in our beauty and health routines, today i'll be telling you about the wonders of lime.

Lime is not just a fruit from the citrus family, it also has many amazing health and beauty benefits, I would know because I've tried it out...let's begin!


It lightens dark spots
Lime juice is said to be a natural bleaching agent because of it's skin lightening properties. So say 'bye bye' to those nasty scars and blemishes caused by pimples.
What you do: Squeeze some lime juice on a cotton wool and apply to the areas you would like to lighten (it could be your face, armpits, knees...anywhere), leave it for 30 minutes and rinse of with water. This makes the skin very sensitive especially to sunlight, so I would advise you to this at night.


It prevents the dreaded pimple/acne
This is one I can totally testify to, lime will drastically reduce your pimples. I usually do just the cotton ball method as I explained above, because lime juice is acidic in nature it helps to control the oiliness of my skin thereby getting rid of pimples and keeping my face smooth. If you want to keep the pimples from returning, you can prepare a face mask made of lime and honey. Honey has anti-bacterial properties, which also helps reduce the risk of more pimples.
What to do: Squeeze half a lime and add two spoons of honey, mix until it looks like syrup, then apply to the face, leave for 25-30 minutes and rinse with water, you can do this once a week.


It makes your skin glow
We all know that water does wonders for the skin, well if you didn't, now you know...but hold on, water + lime will do even more amazing things for you skin, but water + lime + honey, you will be glowing like the sun, no jokes! If you find it too stressful to apply lime or to make a face mask, then you can do this. It will make your skin glow from the inside out.
What to do: Have a glass of water (preferably warm) with honey and freshly squeezed lime juice. Drink this in the morning before you start your day and watch your skin become radiant over time.
