15 Beauty Tricks Using Lemon You MUST Know Now

I love being creative. As a child, I remember a project in elementary school where we had to take each letter of our first name and correspond it to a quality or characteristic that represented us.

Remember these? They are called acrostic poems.

I can’t remember the last time I created one, so I thought there is no better time than NOW to create one of these playful poems… and I’d like to dedicate it to one of the most versatile fruits available – LEMONS!

When it comes to beauty, lemons are:

L  – Lightning

E – Eliminating

M – Moisturizing

O – Odorizing

N – Natural

S – Shining

Sure, lemons are great to squeeze on fish or toss into your morning cup of tea. However, lemons are capable of SO MUCH MORE!
