Lemons have gotten an unfair shake as metaphors go, becoming synonymous with faulty cars or life's problems. But the golden fruit gets respect in the skincare world, proving an effective and multitasking ingredient with the added bonus of a delightful fragrance.
Lemon juice, extract, and oil are all used to visibly brighten the complexion, as well as to deliver a powerful dose of Vitamin C to guard against free radicals. Because of lemon's acidic properties, it also acts as a gentle exfoliant and astringent, and can help to clarify acne-prone skin. Whether you are seeking its brightening benefits, or just enjoy the refreshing scent, you'll find these hand-picked selections the perfect boost to your skincare regimen.
