Playing around the beach might so much fun, I really love that time when sun bathing during the day. Love the wind, love the wave so calming. Some people might want to get darker skin tone, bronze effect from sun bathing. After sun bathing our skin became healthier, but somehow our skin can also over burned by the sun. Hmmm probably like me ;( , I played around the beach actually too much play but forgetting to reapply my sunblock. Well the result is my skin became darker, too dark shade for me. All I want to do just to make my face brighter. Browse and browse I found that lemon as a skin lightening and also to relieve sun burn. It's a natural and inexpensive way, ok let's have a try.
here is the step I've tried:
1. Wash lemon appropriately.
2. Cut lemon into slices, and squeeze their juice into a cotton ball. Remember always use fresh cut lemon, consider degradation of the vitamin C in lemon.
3. Apply it arround your face, please mind it stinging effect especially if you have wound or cut.
4. Leave it until 30 minutes and rinse your face.

As the result from this remedies, my skin became lighten and softer . Aww worth the price gals, I just realized what inside the lemon, the things behind its magical effect. It isn't something new anyway, citric acid. Lemon has a high level of citric acid, so if you think it's too stingy then try the lower such as: strawberry, grapes etc. You can also mix the lemon juice with other ingredients like: honey or water, to minimize its stinging effect.
Citric acid also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid class, we can easily find it in our skin care ingredients. AHA works as an exfoliator by helps to remove dead skin cells and as the result lighten and softer skin as I mention before. To get the best result we can't only do this once time, do it routinely.
Anyway, don't forget to apply sun screen because the outer layer may not be mature enough to withstand environmental effects. But please gals, mind your skin and don't overdo this. In some cases skin become redness and irritation. This is usually because the number of skin cells dying/sloughing off are more than the number that are forming. I'm highly satisfied with this homemade skin care remedies, So gals what's your secret homemade skin care remedies?
