Anti-aging spa treatments at home are just a peel away

Share |

Who knew that your local grocery store holds the secret to anti-aging in the produce aisle? It’s true; the natural acid in a lemon can give you the benefits of a facial peel and for under $1.

What you will need to make your very own natural peel: Two lemons, two cotton balls, small bowl.

Step 1: Wash your face and leave a little damp.

Step 2: Squeeze the juice from the two lemons into the small bowl.

Step 3: Dip cotton balls in lemon juice, apply to face.

Step 4: Leave lemon juice on face for 10 minutes. You will experience a gentle tingling; it’s from the acid in the lemon. If the sensation is too much for you, leave on as long as you can stand. Note: If you have allergies to lemons please avoid this treatment.

Step 5: Rinse and apply your favorite moisturizer. Enjoy your fresh new glow.
For an extra treat, apply the lemon juice to the tops of hands and follow the same instructions above. Your hands will feel softer and have a nice youthful radiance.

This month, skip the spa and head to the produce aisle for natural rejuvenation.

    I tried this treatment and it worked wonders. I can’t believe I spent so much on over the counter and prescription peels when lemons do the trick so well…even better. Gwendolyn Smith is such a gem. I am so excited to see what Beautevanna has to offer in the future. I already LOVE the Beatevanna lipstick, mineral face powder, and blush. Awesome!
