Some people spend thousands of dollars every year to even their skin tone and reduce the appearance of moles on their face and body. However, one of the most effective treatments for moles is natural, cheap and may even be in your back garden hanging on a tree. The treatment is fresh lemons.
Lemons are rich in potassium and vitamin C, both of which help to boost your immune system. The juice from the lemon is acidic, as it contains citric acid. Lemons also contain alpha hydroxy acids or AHA, which are effective in reducing pigmentation in the skin, as occurs in problems such as moles.
Drinking lemon juice mixed with water will help to support good skin health and will assist the skin in its restoration abilities. When applied to the face, lemons can remove dead skin cells to expose smoother new skin underneath. Lemons also speed up the procedure of new skin cell formation, which will give you fresher looking skin and encourage even skin tone without moles or freckles.
Here are two techniques using lemons, which you can try at home to reduce the appearance of moles and improve your skin health overall.
Topical application: Begin by cleansing the area of your face or body where you wish to apply the treatment. Squeeze a small amount of fresh lemon juice into a bowl. Take a cotton ball and soak it in the lemon juice until it has soaked up sufficient liquid to become damp. Apply the cotton ball directly to the skin where the mole you which to treat is located. If you have very sensitive skin, you may like to mix the lemon juice with water before applying it to the cotton ball, so that your skin does not become irritated or burn. Leave the cotton ball on your skin for at least 20 minutes. It is ideal to use this treatment at nighttime, sealing it with a bandage so that the lemon treatment doesn’t come off. Follow this procedure for around two weeks and you will notice results.
Drinking lemon tonic: You can drink lemon juice as a natural body tonic. Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice with two cups of water and drink either cold or warm. Drink this blend twice daily for optimum health benefits.
