DIY Lemon Face Products

We are in the month of love, February – and a clean, DIY beauty routine is a wonderful and easy way to extend that loving spirit into the world of self care. Lemons are an endlessly versatile fruit, and can be as helpful in a skincare routine as they can in the kitchen. At their core, lemons are a wonderful source of Vitamin C, which helps to promote collagen production and skin renewal. Additionally, alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) are a key component of exfoliation, and can help to brighten the skin and lessen acne scarring, leaving the user with healthy, glowing skin.
