Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, for what purpose do you want to use the mask?
Lime and lemon are known to contain vitamin C and other antioxidants that are good for maintaining healthy skin, including brightening, moisturizing, preventing premature aging, and minimizing inflammation. Therefore, lime and lemon are often used as one of the basic ingredients in the manufacture of skin care products, masks are no exception.
Even so, you need to know, that not everyone is suitable to use lime and lemon to be applied directly to the skin as is done when using a mask. In people with sensitive skin types, contact with lime and lemon can actually trigger irritation, which makes the skin feel itchy, sore, red, swollen, peeling, and even blisters as you mentioned. If this condition you are experiencing, of course your skin condition is not improving, but vice versa.
The type of skin care for each person can vary, depending on the type of skin as well as general health conditions. Ideally, before deciding to use certain skin care products, both natural and chemical, you should first check your skin condition to a doctor or dermatologist. With experience and competence, doctors will certainly understand the type of skin care that is most suitable for you to use, for the sake of producing better skin conditions.
Hope this helps ...
