Lemons have amazing natural healing properties that offer great health and beauty benefits inside and out. Here are 5 fun facts you need to know about lemons.

1. Daily dose of Vitamin C

The mighty Lemon offers 88% of your daily dose of Vitamin C. Renowned for fighting colds and flu bugs, it also contains a good amount of Potassium and Magnesium; both of which help promote healthy skin.

2. Glow on the outside

Lemons are used in a number of beauty treatments to cleanse, refresh and add a youthful glow. Skin looks more radiant, hair looks shinier, nails look whiter!

3. Glow on the inside

Lemons are actually alkaline (even though they taste acidic) which means they help to regulate the body to an ideal pH level of 7.30-7.45. Lemon juice also aids digestion and helps cleanse the liver. This all adds up to a healthier body, which means clearer skin and shinier hair!

4. The thinner the better

Did you know? The highest quality and juiciest
lemons have thinner skin. (Should this be peels?)
