6 reasons why lemons are essential in your beauty routine

4. No more dandruff

A lemon can be your savior when you have dandruff or even just a dry scalp. Make a mixture of lemon juice, water, olive oil, and ginger. Rub this amazingly fragrant mixture on your scalp and let your skin absorb the mixture until your scalp feels dry to the touch. Then, if you wash your hair with some shampoo, your dandruff is probably a whole lot less if not completely gone.

5. Make a scrub

Do you recognize those dry spots on your feet? Go on! Give yourself a lemon juice foot scrub! Mix some lemon juice with sea salt and scrub your feet with it. If you feel that sea salt is too rough for your skin, you can always use some dark brown sugar instead. The scrub gets a bit softer with dark brown sugar. This sugar-and-lemon scrub is not only great for feet though as it is also wonderful to use on your lips.

6. Skin, hair, and… nails?

Yes you read that correctly. Lemon juice can also be fantastic for your nails. Make a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. Let your fingers soak in this mixture for fifteen minutes daily for a few days. Your nails will get harder from this treatment. You’ll also find that they get a more natural colour. A real lemon win-win situation.
