Lemon contains antioxidants, antifungal properties and astringent qualities. Lemons are great for cleansing the skin, reducing skin damage and reducing premature aging.  Lemons also have some skin lightening properties, which are good for age spots.  It’s important to use lemon in a more diluted form, such as in water, because it is an acidic fruit and can cause irritation to sensitive skin.  Lemon peel is used in our Lemon & Hyssop Hydrosol to help refresh and tone the skin.
