Your skincare routine needs to be robust if you wish to maintain skin health and keep it blemish-free. While there are many products available in the market that promise to keep your skin healthy and radiant, have you ever tried lemon as part of your skincare regime? We all know about the benefits of lemon and its antioxidant properties for one’s health, but it is equally good for one’s skin.

Here’s what ayurvedic practitioner Dr V L Shyam said: ” For ages, lemon has been used as a beauty influencer. Lemon is astringent and detoxifying and is therefore great for blemishes associated with oily skin. Lemon juice is naturally rice with fruit acids. It not only removes dead skin cells but also bleaches darkened or discoloured areas.”
