Luckily, I've been blessed with pretty good skin (thanks Mom!) but it's far from perfect. With age and UV exposure, I've developed sunspots, un-even skin tone & have the occasional bad breakout. A few days ago, I was cruising through Ms. Kandee Johnson's youtube channel and came across a video she posted years ago. In the video she gave instructions on a great natural skin treatment that helps to heal acne, remove blackheads, lighten dark spots & blemishes using things you probably already have laying around your house. No expensive product! I finally tried it and thought I'd share with you! All you need is a lemon (or lemon juice from the little plastic lemons) sugar & a cotton ball. First wet your face with warm water. Soak part of the cotton ball in the lemon juice and sprinkle some sugar on top and scrub away! (careful around the eyes!) If you have sensitive skin, you may want to start with a small discreet area to make sure it does't irritate your skin, however using lemon juice reduces the risk of inflammation and irritation since it is all natural with no chemicals, but you can never be too careful. My skin can pretty much take anything I throw at it so I dove right in. The lemon juice felt really refreshing right away and I didn't experience any burning like I have with products such as Proactiv. The alpha hydroxy's found in lemons help to exfoliate dead skin cells away and promote the growth of new ones, they also help with the ph balance of the skin. I let it sit for just a couple minutes and wiped off with damp washcloth. It felt amazing and I will continue to use this every other day or so and keep you guys posted on my results.
