Why limes are good for your skin

WHY LIMES ARE GOO FOR YOUR SKIN

INTRODUCTION

Limes are good for your skin.

The citrus fruit is not only refreshing in cuisine and cocktails, it also does wonders for your skin.

Limes are rich in nutrients and substances such as citric acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and flavonoids. They act as cleansers and great detoxifiers for the body systems. So, this actually makes limes not only good for the skin but for your entire health.

VITAMIN C IN LIMES

The most notable substance that limes hold is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is vital to removing free radicals that can damage healthy cells throughout the body. Free radicals are the biggest threat to our skin because they damage the cell and its membrane. Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that can also increase collagen synthesis. Collagen is responsible for skin strength and elasticity and as we age collagen production decreases and causes wrinkles. Additionally, Vitamin C found in lime juice has been known to kill specific strains of bacteria that can cause acne.

A healthy way to get more lime juice into your system is by adding some lime juice into a glass of water each day. It is not only healthy, but it can also be nice for a change. Be cautious that, if you were to drink lime juice every day that your teeth won’t be that happy about it. It can damage the enamel coating on your teeth so, a stainless-steel straw is something worth purchasing to prevent cavities.

OTHER THINGS TO USE LIMES FOR

• Acne and blackheads

• The antibacterial and antifungal activity of limes can you use as a natural alternative to acne and blackheads. Cut have a lime and rub the juice on your face. You can smear honey on top of it as well before you tackle those black dots. Let everything soak in for 3 – 5 minutes and wash your face thoroughly with cold water.

• Spots and blemishes

• Scars from acne, dark spots and imperfections are a pretty tough fight. The acid in lime juice will gradually settle your skin. Be careful with open scars and wounds. Limes can feel a bit prickly.

• Oily Skin

• If you suffer from an oily skin, lime juice can help as well. Squeeze the lime juice into a bowl and add 50% more water into the bowl. Dampen a cotton ball into the mixture and apply on the affected areas. Do this not more than three times a week.

IMPORTANT NOTE

• Never use lime juice if you are going to be exposed by the sun. This can cause for change in skin tone.

• Limes may be no longer on your skin than a couple of minutes. This because of the low pH-value.

• Limes can change skin temporarily.
