Lemon and Yeast Facial Recipe

I have a great skin care tip that you can make at home, and it seems to work well for all skin types. Mix a little active dry yeast and a little fresh lemon juice to make a paste. Spread it on your face and neck, let dry for about 15 minutes and rinse off. You can spot treat blemishes with this mixture overnight as well.


This is the best facial I've ever used and by far the cheapest! I've become really interested in home-made skin care recipes like this one and have posted some on my free website www.fruitfacial.net. Come by and visit my site for more frugal natural skin care tips!

Please be careful about lemon on your skin. It can be helpful in some ways, but it also can lead you to an embarrasing situation. Lemon is light and heat sensitive, if you apply it to any part of your body and later expose yourself to sunlight, the parts covered with the lemon juice will become very dark. It´ll take days before the stains disappear. Lemon juice can also be used as invisible ink: wet an old writing pen with the juice and write on white paper, let it dry and later apply heat to the sheet and the words you wrote will be seen in a brownish color. Try it, it´s fun.

Hi there, I'm pregnant and my skin has been going through breakouts. I'm trying to use natural solutions to deal with the problem and lemon is really helping to control the pimples. In terms of sunlight causing darkening to the skin after using lemon on the skin what time frame would this be applicable? Is it a case of if you use it and sit in the sun within a week it will have this affect or is the problem longer lasting and if you sit in the sun a month after using this solution you may have this unwanted side affect? Thanks
