Blackheads, under eye circles and dark lips are some of the common problems one faces during summer. Many turn to expensive creams and face washes when the remedy is as simple and cheap as a mosambi (sweet lime).
-Wash your face with soap and water and wipe it dry. Now cut a mosambi in two and using one half, scrub your face in a circular motion as gently as you can. Continue doing this for 10-12 minutes and then, using a soft cloth or tissue, rub the juice and any remains off of your face. Gently wash your face with water. The citric juice in a mosambi works as a natural mild bleach and cleansing agent, helping in brightening your skin while clearing up blackheads and cleaning your pores.
-Similarly, you can also lighten the back of your neck, your underarms, elbows and knees by rubbing gently rubbing the mosambi on it.
-Ground mosambi peel can be applied on your face to get rid of pimples.
-Apply mosambi juice on your lips 3-4 times a day to reduce darkness and cracks.
-Mosambi juice also helps in treating split ends and dandruff. Add a little juice with water and wash your hair.
