Lemon juice can be a valuable ally in getting rid of under-eye circles and the typical tell-tale signs of sleepless nights.
Sometimes a simple concealer is not enough to eliminate these unsightly dark circles. Stress, preoccupations, lack of sleep, aging skin, dehydration, and fluids retention are the main causes of under-eye circles, the ugly furrows that form below the eyes and make you look tired and spent.
Lemon juice is the most immediate, simple solution is on hand, as it exerts a triple action:
- Detoxifying, which help your skin look young and brighter.
- Vitamin boosting: lemon juice contains vitamin C, which helps synthesize collagen and acts as an antioxidant to protect the skin
- Energizing: the aroma of lemon is known to have mood-lifting effects, help combat stress, and brighten up the skin of your face
So, how can you get rid of under-eye circles with lemon? For a skin-brightening effect, soak a cotton ball with lemon juice (2 teaspoons of LIMMI lemon juice) and apply it directly to the skin around your eyes.
Leave the lemon juice on for a few seconds, and then wash it off with warm water. To be effective, the treatment should be repeated at least 2-3 times a week.
Beware of direct sun-light! Undesirable stains may appear if you don’t thoroughly wash the lemon juice off your skin before exposing it to the sun.
