The Use Of Fresh Lemons On Facial Skin?
At noon, I have been applying for 6 days a fresh lemon to the facial skin sometimes 2x a day sometimes cm once a day, but this morning I wake up itching itchy and I see a mirror that faces a lot of spots like allergies or some kind of mild blotter but the skin does not redden. The question is, is it caused by the use of lemons? Because as long as I use lemon I don’t touch other treatments and make up. Then how should you handle it? Please answer, thank you very much.
Hello Dayana, thank you for asking.
Lemon or lime is indeed widely used as a natural facial skin care. Acidic properties of both of which cause antiseptic effects, so that the growth of bacteria that cause acne can be suppressed. Lemon acidity is also said to restore the skin's normal pH. Normally the skin's normal pH is acidic, which is around 4-5.5. When someone uses commercial face care products, many of them cause the pH of the skin to become alkaline. As a result the skin is easily infected. Smear of lemon on the facial skin is expected to help lower the pH of the skin so that it returns acid.
Lemon also has an exfoliating effect, which accelerates skin regeneration. This results in brighter skin. However, you need to pay attention to its use. Do not leave the lemon too long on the face. Generally 10-15 minutes is enough. You can do it every day or several times a week. Use that is too long or too often, sometimes can cause dry skin and irritation. The condition of each person's face is certainly different. Determine the schedule for using the lemon that best suits you. If once a day use is too heavy for your skin, maybe you can reduce it to 2 or 3 days. You should use a moisturizer and sunscreen afterwards. Lemon and other citrus groups, making the skin sensitive to UV rays, making it easy to irritate. Choose a moisturizer and sunscreen with ingredients as natural as possible, try to choose products that do not have too many chemical compositions, and choose products that are not perfumed. If the symptoms of irritation on your face continue to increase, it never hurts to consult a doctor.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
