In your busy life, there is another refreshing day that has come to make you happy. It is National Lemon Day on August 29, 2021. Celebrate the day with the mixing of lemon juice to your recipe. About a million years ago this sour fruit was founded in the Himalayan Mountains. In the United States, California and Arizona produce these brightly sour fruits more than any other state.
Love for National Lemon Day
There are many causes of loving lemon juice. The acid of lemon juice boosts the taste and flavors in cooking. The face looking of a man who is tasting the sourness of lemon is funny and very enjoyable. Adding lemon juice to a salad gives a nice sensitivity. This one ingredient can change the taste of the entire dish.
Its application in any beverage gives an awesome flavor. To enhance the taste all popular beverage companies add lemon juice to their drinks. Lemon juice also is used in many diseases as a medication. For example, when it is paired with honey and a hot beverage, lemon juice soothes a sore throat and cough. It’s naturally acidic and unique in scent. Lemons are capable of much more than a refreshing drink.
10 Special Tricks for National Lemon Day
Lemons have strong antibacterial properties, which makes them perfect for nixing breakout-causing bacteria. To DIY your own version, mix a few drops of coconut water with a few drops of lemon juice. The coconut will hydrate your skin, and lemon will clear and brighten it. Note: If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test on your skin first.
Elbow And Knee Lightener
Lemons are packed with vitamin C, a natural brightening ingredient. “If your elbows and knees appear dark, simply rub them with half of a lemon,” says Patrice Coleman, owner of DaBlot Beauty. “It’s like magic!”
It might sound too good to be true, but lemons can also help treat your blackheads. This is because they contain citric acid, a natural form of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). After cleansing, rub a slice of lemon over your most blackhead-ridden spots (typically your T-zone) to let the AHAs work their pore-clearing magic.
“I like to mix a couple of drops of lemon and tea tree essential oil in about six ounces of distilled water. I recommend it as a toner or for use with cotton pads as a cleansing wipe for problematic skin,” says Becky Sturm, founder of StormSister Spatique. If you’re not into making one yourself, check out this pre-made version from Clean & Clear.
Does at-home whitening leave your teeth sensitive for days? Try this instead: Mix baking soda and lemon juice, and apply it to your teeth with a clean Q-tip. Then, use your toothbrush to scrub your teeth and rinse.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and citric acid, so they can help brighten and lighten your skin when used over time. “Vitamin C is a great antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals and boosting collagen production,” says Marina Peredo, MD, a dermatologist. That means it can help lighten dark spots. Try it in this moisturizer from Fresh.
The citric acid inside lemon juice works as a natural astringent. If you’re prone to a greasy complexion, add a few drops of lemon juice to a cotton pad, then wipe it over a freshly washed face to stop oil in its tracks.
Mix a little lemon juice with some brown sugar to create your own lip scrub. The lemon juice’s AHA will work as a chemical exfoliator to loosen up dead skin cells while the sugar will work as a physical exfoliator to slough them off.
Have you been getting too many gel manicures? Make a mixture of your favorite cooking oil (try olive oil) with lemon juice, and soak your nails. This is a good practice if your nails are dry and brittle, but it’s also a great way to help fix nails that have yellowed.
If your hair is already on the lighter side, score dye-free DIY highlights with lemon juice. Apply it before you expose your hair to sunlight to score a sun-kissed color. For a trendy ombré effect, focus the lemon juice just toward the ends of your hair.
