Even if you don’t enjoy the sour taste of lemons, you can’t deny that they are packed with nutrients. The grass that also bears its name has many of the same properties has many of the same benefits, and either, when placed on your skin, can help fight the appearance of a number of different skin issues, ranging from acne to facial lines and wrinkles. Here are some of lemon and lemongrass powerful benefits:

  1. Fights the look of acne scars and spots. Though we all might have believed that acne is something that only affects teenagers, we know that it usually follows us into adulthood. And even if we are very good about leaving those spots alone, they can still develop scars. An application of lemon or lemongrass oil reduces the discoloration of these spots and can help to fade their appearance.
  1. Lemon juice is a mild astringent and is packed with antibacterial benefits. That means that if you apply it to a pimple, it has dual abilities. Not only will it help dry that pimple up, but it will get rid of the bacteria that is the leading cause of acne in the first place. It is also one of the most popular natural blackhead treatments, clearing out and closing up those pores.
  1. Can be used to exfoliate the skin. The citric acid that is present in both of these ingredients is one of the mildest chemical peels on the market, and the safest to use at home. While convention tells us that rubbing a harsh scrub onto the face is the best way to remove dead skin cells, it is also the best way to irritate the skin. A gentle chemical peel, using either lemon or lemongrass oil, will help you slough off dead cells. This will create a complexion that looks smoother, healthier, and brighter.
  1. Can be used as a toner. If you are suffering from acne, you know how difficult it is to keep your face from becoming oily. Lemon and lemongrass oil are both natural toners, helping to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance and close overactive oil glands so that you have fresh, more natural looking skin.
  1. Brightens dark marks. Whether they are acne scars or age spots, lemon and lemongrass oil are a great way to naturally lighten those marks. Whether this is an ingredient in your moisturizer or dabbed on, on their own, before bed, you will see the appearance of your marks begin to lighten overnight!
