Lemon Juice on Skin and Hair

January 20, 2013

Cut lemons on a cutting board with lemon juice in a glass bowlI what to know if lemon juice in the bottle is the same as a lemon fruit? I have been using it and I just want to know does it work? My face does feel soft and with a glow, but I can't quite tell on my face. I just started about a week ago.

Bottled lemon juice is not quite the same. It contains a preservative that to me has a taste. I squeeze fresh lemons and freeze the juice to be thawed when I need it. It might not make any difference if putting it on your face. A preservative..... who knows? Might be a good thing.

Please, please, answer my question as soon as possible. Can you use fresh lemon juice on face and body skin or should you dilute it with rosewater?

Lemon juice is acidic. If your skin is dry or fragile, it may be too harsh. I suggest starting with a mix of half lemon juice and half water and see how your skin reacts.


What are you expecting the lemon juice to do for your skin?

hi,please help?? I rubbed a raw lemon into my skin, on my face under my mouth, as I thought I could rid my facial brown freckle. I woke up an in the area where affected, my skin was red and bleeding at times. Later on it formed into a scab and now looks like its turning into a red/dark ingrained scar.Fairly large size :( My facial skin is oily type.
