There is a reason lemons are always a recipe in most spas ─ they are good for your skin. This is, in part, because of the abundance of vitamin C in them, and in part, because of the water.

How Vitamin C in Lemons Help Your Skin

Vitamin C helps your skin in so many ways. First, it promotes the production of collagen, a protein naturally produced by the body responsible for thickening the skin. When collagen is depleted, the skin starts looking thin and wrinkly. Vitamin C helps prevent this from happening.

Vitamin C is also a great antioxidant, and this also does the skin a lot of good by protecting it from damaging free radicals caused by exposure to intense UV rays. 

Add to that its regenerative ability which helps repair damages to the skin caused by excess exposure to sunlight and collagen loss, it is not hard to see why Vitamin C is a component in most skincare products.

How Water in Lemons Helps Your Skin

Unlike vitamin C, how water improves the condition of the skin is not as well known. One fact is certain, however, if the skin loses moisture, it becomes dry, scaly, and wrinkly, something nobody wants for their skin.

How to Enjoy These Benefits

So how can you start enjoying these benefits? It’s pretty simple. All you need to do is consume a glass of home-made lemon juice every day. 

You should also consider using soaps rich in lemon or incorporating lemon-based products in your skincare routine.
